I don’t know if it’s because I live in the south, but I adore porches. I sit outside on mine every chance I get and gauge the attractiveness of houses I drive past largely by the design and “livability” of their porch space. Is this a common feeling? I already know I will be that 90-year-old woman (good Lord willing) who rocks in her rocker and knows all the neighborhood gossip because she’s on her stoop all day. And to me there is nothing better in summer than to enjoy your outdoor space with some light apps and a glass of crisp, amazing wine. HEAVEN! And what makes it even better is that these are excellent white wines under $20!
Since this upcoming holiday weekend will no doubt be full of porch, patio, deck and terrace time, I compiled a list of 11 wines that you can be confident to sip or gift at your summer party. My criteria for being on this list: 1) they are delicious, 2) under $20 and many under $15 3) easy to find (so you aren’t searching forever if you decide to try my suggestions) 4) have either high star or Wine Spectator ratings.
11 Delicious White Wines for Summer
1). Ca Momi Bianco Di Napa (blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio and Viognier).
3) Conundrum White Blend (a favorite)
8) Oregon Acrobat Pinot Gris (a favorite and a steal at $12.99)
9) La Crema Sonoma Coast Chardonnay (one of my favorites)
11) Chloe Pinot Grigio (pictured on my porch, 1st photo)
Serve all of the above slightly chilled. For a refreshing, calorie-conscious option add sparkling water and a slice of lemon for a spritzer. Please tell me your favorite white wines. I would love to try them. Cheers to a bright and happy summer! xx CC
