Lighter Wines

On the lighter side….

Post holiday lighter meals call for lighter wine but still wines that you can be excited about. Our friends at Royal Wines always have some great ideas for us.
“When I think of lighter wines I think of Italian wines – wines that are made to be enjoyed with food. These wines typically have a bright acidity that keeps them lighter on the palate,” says Gary Landsman, our chief wine go-to guy. Some of the wines from Ovadia Estates [1] come to mind, such as the new Nobile di Montepulciano [2] (local availability soon) or the ever popular Rosso di Motepulciano [3], each great deals at about $12-$16. The Morellino di Scansano [4] & Dolcetto D’alba [5] are also nice options (at about $20).

As for some nice white options, try the Goose Bay Sauvignon Blanc [6] (everything from Goose Bay is great these days) and one of our favorites, the Carmel Kayoumi Riesling [7].
