Cameron Hughes Summer Whites (6)

Wine Time

It's summer, which can only mean one thing - it's time to drink copious amounts of white wine.

These wines, while enjoyable at any time during the year, are best sipped on in summer. Add them to your Seasonal Cellar alongside other wines that should be enjoyed at specific times, such as:

Winter Wines - Unlike the lighter, sweeter summer wines, winter wines are often dry, red, and go well with being cold and miserable.

Merlober October - A collection of 31 Zinfandels, one for each day. Not to be taken part in alone.

A Very Sherry Christmas - Nothing says “I wish I didn’t have to deal with my family” more than a big old bottle of fortified wine.

Chardonnay Day - A holiday in Chardonnay, France, where residents must consume nothing but Chardonnay for a full 24-hour period.

Port Year - Portugal declared 1966 to be “The Year of Port,” when everyone drank this dessert wine with dinner for the entire year. At the end of the year they were faced with the reality of how gross Port is, and decided to just export it from there on out.

Breakfast Gewürztraminer - A wine designed specifically for Germans (you drink it in the morning).
