Spring is the perfect time of year to try out some new white wine spritzers. They are a fun and easy way to spice up your regular drink. When making a white wine spritzer, it is usually best to start with a bright and crisp white wine that isn’t sweet, like a Sauvignon Blanc. Gallo Winery has many divine ones to choose from, such as Edna Valley, Starborough, and White Haven. These wines all have the perfect balance of crisp notes, hints of fruit, and bright flavor to make the most delicious spritzer ever. Here is a perfect white wine spritzer to get you into the spirit of Spring!
