Best White Wines For Summer Drinking | 2018
We've handpicked a selection of interesting white wines which we think are just great at this time of year – the kind of white wine you’d like to hand, in a glass with light condensation, on a crisp linen tablecloth, as you contemplate the antipasti, primi and fish options at the River Café - but would equally be enjoyed at home in your own garden or on the beach, with or without food.
Rather than focusing on White Burgundy, other Chardonnay, and Sauvignon, these are whites that you might not think of at first, but they will surprise and delight you - and not just because of your own clever wine buying skills - but because they entertain the palate in an excitingly different and refreshing way.
In price terms these are the ‘Sweet Spot’ wines, neither the cheapest, nor the most expensive. For ultimate simplicity, choose from the shortlist of six prime examples below, or, to explore in more depth, view the full list.
