Refreshing Wine Buys
Looking to for a lighter vino? These three sips have less alcohol and taste amazing chilled.
Clean Slate Reisling
Germany 2007 ($11)
This easy-to-open screw-top wine is a warm-weather crowd-pleaser. Guests will love the peaches-and-cream, beeswax, and apple flavors.
France 2008 ($13)
This might be the perfect summer red. Not aged in oak, it’s light—and delicious lightly chilled.
Gazela Vinho Verde
Portugal 2008 ($6.99)
As crisp as a linen sundress, this blend of local white grapes, such as Loureira and Pederna, has a touch of effervescence and a snappy apple flavor.
