Refreshing Summer White Wines with Dinner

FEATURED ITEM: Refreshing Summer White Wines with Dinner

With the heat of the summer, nothing hits the spot more than a crisp and fruity white wine. A few great summery whites are Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling.

Here are our tips for pairing your summer whites with your hot-weather meals:


Pinot Grigio is a delicate wine from Italy that pairs nicely with light seafood appetizers, such as lemon-garlic shrimp on crostini. It’s also a lovely complement for Orzo with Pesto and a crisp green salad.

Sauvignon Blanc has notes of citrus and a slight effervescence and can really stand up to a heavier grilled fish or chicken dish. It goes wonderfully with pastas that are prepared in a white sauce.

Riesling is the sweetest of the bunch and compliments most Asian dishes. You’ll find both dry and sweet varieties. Sweeter Rieslings complement sweeter foods, and dry Riesling pairs well with salty oysters or a Thai curry dish.


To add a little something special to any of these wines, pour a chilled bottle into a carafe and add some chopped stone fruits, such as peaches and plums, as well as summer berries. Let it sit in the fridge to infuse. Pour into glasses and garnish with mint.
