Our weather is supposed to warm by Friday, with temperatures reaching the low 80's over the weekend. Here are a few of my favorite summertime sippers (in order from least expensive to most expensive) that will help you keep cool:
2011 Alamos Torrontés: An aromatic white wine from Argentina with melon and peach flavors, bright acidity, and clean finish. At Trader Joe's for only $8.99!
2011 Pine Ridge Chenin Blanc-Viognier: Racy acidity with zesty citrus flavors and good minerality. Very easy to drink. At Trader Joe's for $10.99.
2011 Hanna Sauvignon Blanc: Light and crisp, with orange blossom and lime notes. $18 or less at Safeway and Costco.
