Since I'm so insufferably picky about everything, including my wine, I decided to share a few notes about light summer wines you might enjoy before summer disappears.
Stemmari Pinot Grigio ($9.99)This italian Pinot Grigio from Sicily is an interesting bridge between classic Italian Pinot Grigio and California style Pinot Gris. It's dry and slightly tart, but after a few sips, it reveals a less traditional fruity side, with hits of peach and orange blossoms. This is a great wine to serve with extra-rich fish dishes.
Stemmari’s Dalila ($13.99)
When you're in the mood for a buttery white that seems almost sweet because of the deep floral and stone fruit notes, this is a fun pick, as it's made from 80% Grillo and 20% Viognier, two lesser known grapes.This is a good wine to serve with just about any cheese or any fish dish.
