When I first started drinking wine over 25 years ago, I only drank white wines and my favorite was Chablis. Over the years my friends, and my desire to educate my palate, pushed me toward red wines as well as other whites. Today, about three quarters of the wines I drink are reds and the rest are whites. After my Chablis days one of the first white wines I started drinking was Sauvignon Blanc.
Today’s blog is from guest blogger Stan Minden, Premium Wine Buyer for Chalet Party Shoppe and Belmont Beverage Stores of Indiana. As a retailer by this time of the year my focus has turned to planning for the holiday season. Someone reminded me recently that it is still summer and that means it is white wine season. What a great topic to write about this week…Bordeaux, California, New Zealand, Sancerre, Sauvignon Blanc, Stan Minden
