Beginning White Wines

Guest Author - Paula S.W. Laurita

Here is a list of wines designed to broaden your wine drinking experience without shocking your palate.

In the previous article, Learning to Taste Wine, I suggested some white wines for beginning wine drinkers. Those were selected for people who drink White Zinfandel or other sweet wines. This list is the next step. If you are not a sweet wine drinker, but perfer light Chardonnays, this list is a good place for you to begin. Again, these are white wines.

  • Pouilly-Fume
  • Vihno Verde
  • Frascati
  • Vouvray
  • Anjou Blanc

You might want to finish with a sweet wine to compare the flavors. A Gewurztraminer would round off the tasting and is an excellent wine to server with dessert. You will want something of quality, such as the Wunsch et Mann Gewurztraminer, from the Alsace region of France. It is a fine and complex wine, with both floral and spice flavors. The fruity nose and tastes will leave a pleasant impression. Once you become used to a sweet wine with layers of color, scent, and flavor, you can appreciate the craft that goes into such a wine.
