Chardonnay (Shar-don-nay)
The most popular white wine.
                               Tends to be voluptuous, velvety, and dry. Its
                               citrus flavors, like lemon and grapefruit, and
                               fruity melons are complemented with those of
                               its oak barrel fermentation, including rich,
                               creamy, buttery tones and hints of vanilla and
                               toast.
Sauvignon Blanc (So-veen-yawn Blah)
Also known as “Fumé Blanc” to highlight the wine’s smoky flavors.
         Sauvignon Blanc aromas and flavors can be
         smoky (light), herbal, grassy, with suggestions
         of bell peppers. It can also run the gamut, from
         evoking thoughts of unripe fruit, such as pears
         or apples to tropical fruits, like mangos,
         melons, and blackcurrants. It is typically a very
         light wine that tends to be acidic and crisp.
Moscato (Mus-ket-o)
It is known by several names, like Muskateller, Muscat Canelli and
Muscat Blanc.
                                    Has a musky aroma with a citric or grapefruit
                                    flavor that is frequently sweet; a very distinct
                                    taste.
Pinot Grigio (Pee-know-gree-zo)
Known by numerous names: Pinot Grigio (California and Italy), Pinot Gris (Oregon),
Malvoisie (France’s Loire Valley), Pinot Gris (in the rest of the France), Grauer
Burgunder or Ruländer(Austria).

                Typically a dry, crisp wine with an acidic bite.
Gewürztraminer (Gah-VERTZ-tra-MEE-ner)
Tends to be sweet white wine, which is sometimes dry.

       The aroma is an interesting mixture of spice
       and flowers. It is not deemed as lively as other
       wine types.
Riesling (Rees-ling)
Known by many names, such as Weisser Riesling, Riesling Renano,
Rheinriesling, and Johannisberg Riesling.

                                    Lighter than a Chardonnay. Typically
                                    complex and sweet with aromas of fresh
                                    apples, florals, and honey. Some are
                                    musky and dry.
White Zinfandel
Made from the same red grape used to make Red Zinfandel.
              White zinfandel is a pale, pinkish color that’s
              very sweet and lends itself to citrusy flavors,
              such as orange or grapefruit as well as hints of
              vanilla and strawberries.
