About Light White

Light white wines are known for their dry and refreshingly tart flavour. Most light-bodied white wines are meant to be enjoyed young when they have maximum acidity and bold fruit.

These easy-drinking dry white wines are some of the most-sold wines in the world (even if red wines get more attention). Light whites are like the “beer of wine” and, for this reason, they are perfect to drink with most foods. Some of these wines are perfect for savory lovers (like Sauvignon Blanc and Grüner) with green herbal flavors of gooseberry and bell pepper.
