PINOT GRIGIO

One of the most popular summertime white wines! Pinot Grigio has a crisp, green apple flavor with a refreshing finish.

SAUVIGNON BLANC

Sauvignon Blanc delivers bright citrus and grapefruit flavors. Some Sauvignon Blancs even have a hint of fresh cut grass. Almost as refreshing as lemon water!

CHARDONNAY
