Bright whites and crisp rosés refresh in summer

As temperatures creep toward — even into — triple digits, we think more and more about refreshing wines to enjoy in the Great Northwest. And with summer’s arrival, we’ll load up with bright white and crisp rosé wines.

Fortunately, the Pacific Northwest provides many examples of white, pink and sparkling wines in that affordable price point of $15 or less. Simply put, most white wines don’t stick around the winery’s cellar for long and bring a reduced cost burden to the winery. So the wines tend to be less expensive.

Here are several affordable white and pink wines we’ve enjoyed recently. Cheers to summer.
