On the vine, white wine grapes can be straw colored, green or even brown, but the wine produced from them is usually very light in color, with a slight golden tint. During the wine making process the grapes are macerated without skins, which assures that no pigments are transferred to the juice, allowing the wine to retain its light color. The taste profile of white wines ranges from a very intense flavor, to the most luscious, smooth and velvety, like going down on a ... umm, an apricot or something. The world’s most famous white grapes include: Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Chenin Blanc, Gewurztraminer and Pinot Gris. Here you can find a very nice selection of white wines that we love. That’s ok, go ahead, you can love them too.
