Blinded By The White


The color white, forgive my comparison, is essentially the “Black Sheep” of the color family. Sure, we all know that currently, and most likely for years to come, there is a group of “misunderstood” teeny-boppers who have their music turned up way too loud, screaming Metallica at the top of their lungs (Or whatever kids listen to nowadays), upset over who-knows-what, and have been wearing the same black skinny jeans and torn graphic T-shirt for entirely too many days in a row. Now, I suppose I can only speak for myself, but I have never seen anyone confidently dress for consecutive days in a row wearing all white. I mean, there is even a rule that no one is even allowed to wear white after Labor Day. In fact, if I were to wear all white for just one day, I would have people sincerely stating how “brave’ I am for it. To further my point, no one person has ever dyed their hair white because its, (*Obnoxious overgrown bang flip*) “So cool and mysterious.” On the contrary, when individuals encounter the whitening of hair, it typically begins with denial and tears, followed with plucking and hair dye, until finally faced with the dreaded, “I guess this is just how I look now.”

So, let me ask you this, when you picture a glass of wine, what color is it? Red or white? There is no shame in stating that you envision the classic, glorified, bottle of red wine being poured into a crystal glass.. but I’d like to take the time to highlight the beauty and flavor of the shimmering and translucent white wines.

If dry, white wine is your forte, you have come to the right place! Our Sparkling Viognier & Chenin Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Albariño and Chardonnay are complex whites that will have you experience “dry” wines in a whole new way.

If you are seeking the best of both worlds, try our semi-sweet wines! Our Riesling and Oktoberfest wines are loaded with botanical notes and both pair deliciously with Thai foods!

Can’t break away from your sweet tooth? Our Orange Muscat, Niagara, Moscato, and Late Harvest Riesling are all excellent, sweet, white wines that are great summer sippers and will be sure to hit your sweet spot!

“White” has many interpretations. When it comes to home decor, white gives a room the illusion of additional space and leaves a blank canvas for the rest of the imagination to take over. A bride fully adorned in white on her wedding day is the symbol of innocence and purity. Even a fluffy, white display of pillows and comforters in the realm of hospitality demonstrates the epitome of cleanliness and relaxation. When it comes to white wine, these positive aspects are shared. White wine allows room for the presence of frozen fruits to be added in every glass for a little extra kick of flavor. Its clear body easily indicates any imperfection, allowing easy spotting of those pesky lake flies that also dive in to get a quick sip.  White wines also reflect the feeling of peace and tranquility. There has never been a debate over reds vs whites, but rather an appreciation to the white wines that may go overlooked under the gorgeous crimson color of its red wine counterparts. So, the next time you find yourself buying a few bottles of wine, get courageous and try a new bottle of white!
