This post goes out to all you white wine lovers. The people who have been there with white wines since day one. The brave savants who identify with our anthem, “started from Moscato now we here.” This is our swan song. We’ll admit, we weren’t always so well versed on the variety of white wines. But one day we woke up, took a long hard look at myself in the mirror, and decided I couldn’t live in ignorance anymore. Here’s how to find “Mr. White” (Wine):
