After decades of corporate neglect and a slide in quality, Sterling Vineyards has returned to its roots and is making excellent wines that are garnering awards and high ratings from wine critics.
During the summer of 2002, I discovered Vinho Verde and found it to be the quintessential white wine for hot, muggy weather.
Chloe Rosé is a crisp, well-balanced wine with flavors and aromas of fresh red berries and watermelon. It’s great for drinking while dining al fresco on a sunny afternoon or a cool summer evening.
Prisma, which is Spanish for “prism,” is a good representative of Chilean coastal Sauvignon Blanc, wine that has been getting excellent reviews, yet seems almost undiscovered because of its bargain prices. I find Prisma regularly on sale for less than $10.

The 2016 A to Z Oregon Chardonnay is a well-balanced unoaked, versatile white wine that’s good to drink by the fire in winter and on the porch on summer evenings.
Gavilan Chardonnay is a distinctive golden-colored Burgundy-style wine, made from grapes grown in one of California’s oldest and most storied vineyards.
I used to think of wine sold in boxes as a byproduct of oversupply, cheap plonk that at best would give you a headache after the first sip.
Oyster Bay Chardonnay, a light wine with delicate fruit flavors, is better suited for warmer weather drinking than the familiar full-bodied, oaky and buttery Chardonnays from other parts of the world.
