Come rain or shine there will always be a welcome table for white wine in the summer.
White wines in the summer are considered by most people to be more refreshing, and lighter in both style and taste than the majority of their red wine counterparts.
The recent rainstorms to lash England were a stark reminder that down here in Kent, we are not exactly living the sunkissed life of some others on the Costa del Sol or Corfu.
But that is not to say that we can’t enjoy a good glass of summer wine, much like the French or Italians on the continent, in our own garden of England. And meteorologists predict a return to sunny days so don’t pack away the garden furniture just yet.
Getting the perfect white wine can make a world of difference for those summer dinners outside with friends and loved ones.
So whether it’s steaks off the barbecue, grilled fish, vegetable dishes and cheeses, get the pairing right for that vino delight. And let’s not forget that white wine can also be a fantastic aperitif or a cool summer quencher.
