Spotlight on Vermentino!


Spotlight on Vermentino!

We are heading into Summer! I know none of us want to believe it after the ups and downs of this winter, but we’ll be seeing warmer weather starting soon! If you want to stock up on some Summer wines, there is no better place to start than with a good Vermentino. Vermentino is grown most in Sardinia as well as Southern France. Crisp and mouthwatering, with complexity and depth, these wines express fresh fruit aromas and lemon, lime, and grapefruit, without going overboard. With a nice nutty undertone and a minerality seen so often in the old world, these wines are great with food, as well as sipping on its own on a hot summer day.
