Broaden your white wine horizons. Sauvignon Blanc, Muscat, Viognier, Pinot Gris and Gewürztraminer, to name a few. Take another look at sparkling wine, for instance. It’s so often overlooked as a meal companion because we associate the pop of the cork with celebration, yet it’s a workhorse at the table. And there’s Pinot Gris (also known as Pinot Grigio), a gently perfumed and delectable mutation of Pinot Noir and an excellent choice for lovers of white wine who desire the complexity of a red. Gewürztraminer is an aromatic varietal that is deliciously quaffable and the companion you want for spicy Asian cuisine. If you’ve never tried fruit wines, you’re in for a glorious taste experience. This is the fruit belt after all and winemakers have the pick of the crop to create exceptional white wines, both of the grape and tender fruit variety.
