Ranging from crisp, with light airy flavours, to rich and full-bodied, white wines are the perfect choice for both a hot summer’s day and a fine dining dinner party. In colder temperatures, a sweet white wine can warm the soul and bring out of your dining experiences.
With over one hundred and fifty wines to choose from, from 19 different countries around the world, at House of Townend we have a fantastic range of white wines to suit any occasion, any palate and any budget. Many of the sweetest wines in our selection are ideal served as dessert wines when you finish your meal.
The ever-popular Chardonnay is a wonderful example of wine’s variety. It is the most widely planted white grape in the world and offers something different depending on what country it is grown in. From some regions Chardonnay offers fruit-forward citrus flavours without being too sweet, whilst from the new world it typically offers elegant, better-balanced options.
Sauvignon Blanc is a versatile white that varies from crisp dry options from the Sancerre region through to more medium white wine styles from the New World. New Zealand, in particular, excels in the Sauvignon style and has produced some intense gooseberry and asparagus fruit flavours. This creates a light, refreshing wine for summer drinking.
Pinot Grigio is a crisp, dry white wine designed mainly to enjoy within a few years of it being bottled. It is typically light-bodied and offers good acidity that means it pairs well with food. Pinot Grigio is again one of the more popular dry white wines in the UK.
