Featured Video Play Icon

Tis the season for something crisp and bright. If you love a dry Riesling, then give Seyval Blanc a chance.

Similar to dry Riesling, this French-American hybrid boasts high acidity and citrus flavors, but it also features some minerality, with notes of green apple, hay, and melon. Next time you’re serving seafood or something spicy, this white is an excellent option. Extra bonus: It can also be made into sparkling wine, taking your evening to the next level.
