Every white wine grape variety can have myriad expressions, depending on where it is grown and how the winemaker chooses to style the wine. The same grape can produce both a dry white wine and a sweet white wine, one that’s crisp and refreshing or honeyed and mellow.
Most wine drinkers know the popular international varieties, like Chardonnay, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc, which are made into white wine in most of the world’s winemaking regions. But there are hundreds more to discover. Think of the popularity of white wines like Pinot Grigio or Moscato, which only a few years ago were largely unknown to U.S. consumers.
