Can anyone recomend a great white wine?

Recommended Posts

Right, so my GF is a big fan of white wine. I'm not much of a wine connoisseur as I'm more of a beer kind of guy, but I'll still drink it. She likes the smooth stuff and as I pretty much have no idea where to start beyond a few suggestions, can anyone recommend a great white wine?

Thanks.

Depends on what you want to spend. Also how refined the drinker is. Saying that, some cheep wine actually tastes better than expensive wine.

Are you looing for a corked wine, or a twist off :mrgreen: Hey I buy wine at Sams...

Assuming it has meaning to you as you would not have asked here, and that your willing to pay 10-15 for a small bottle, but i'm not, as there is to many good wines for under $8 now.

Try a german white. They are a bit sweet and most like them quite well. If she knows her wines a bit go California chardonnay as it's dryer and more body, get it in the big bottle for less money at the supermarket!

That depends on a lot, as 'white wine' is a very broad category. So, here are a few of recommendations. Both are excellent wines. As you can see, I usually drink white wines in the 15-20 dollar range so that may or may not fit your budget, I don't know.

•Pinot Grigio is best paired with foods that are light and simple such as chicken, pasta and light fish dishes. Pinot Grigio does not pair well with cream sauces or meats with a distinctive game taste. Chardonnay pairs well with more complex and heavier meals such as lobster, pork dishes and heavy, cream sauces. Chardonnay does not pair well with red meats or "fishy"-tasting seafood.

(I don't have enough posts to insert a link here so Google for 'What is the Difference Between Pinot Grigio & Chadonnay? on eHow.com.)

but there are other considerations to take into account. what your eating, what you have already drank before, and what your doing later. Just your research alone proves you care so anything you try will go well. She will tell you if she has a preference. so get 6 different kinds and let her choose.

go to a beverage barn type place they have usually good deals on 6 bottles. out here we have BevMo which has buy one get the second for a nickel deals all the time.

I usually get Two Buck Chuck (actually $2.99 now.  Inflation) at Trader Joe's.  

The trick is, find a more expensive wine of the same type.  Then, keep the bottle around but keep refilling it with the 2-Buck Chuck.  

 

Try to get as close in taste as possible.  If the 2-Buck Chuck isn't sweet, but the fancy stuff is, this won't work.
