Ask any bar, restaurant, or wine retailer and most would tell you that up until only recently, when a customer asked for a white wine, they were really only looking for a Chardonnay, maybe a Pinot Grigio if they were a bit adventurous. Times have changed dramatically, and even your most casual wine drinker more than likely has tried a Gewurztraminer, Chenin Blanc, or even a Viognier. With literally dozens of white grapes making headway in the market, there has never been a more exciting time to be drinking white wine. Marketview Liquor works hard to stay on top of up and coming wine trends, and if there is a white varietal worth drinking, we’ll have it.
During the course of this summer, we’ve been particularly excited by Argentina’s Torrontes grape, and Spain’s Godello. While not yet mainstream in popularity, there is nothing stylistically that should keep these wines from being enjoyed by wine drinkers of all stripes.
So step outside the box, there is nothing intimidating about either of these wines except for the fact that you haven’t necessarily tried them. Both are accessible, refreshing, and just plain delicious!
*The list of great white wine varietals in-stock does not stop there. Check out this quick video of our Wine Specialist Mike Martin introducing several more delicious varietals, perfect for your summertime enjoyment. We'll also be going more in-depth on other great "under the radar" white varietals throughout the rest of the summer.
