Why are white wines so appealing in summer?
White wines are perfect for summer enjoyment — not only for the cooler temperatures at which they are served but for the lower alcohol content, which makes them very appealing with lighter foods like salad, fish, and risotto.
What grapes do you like for summer?
Choose wines with character, which means being adventurous and trying some varietals beyond Chardonnay, which is the most popular white at Porter House (and in America). Think about Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, and Gewürztraminer — which are readily available and affordable.
