What is a White Table Wine?

White table wine is a type of wine made from a variety of grapes, without any skin maceration or significant oak influence. As the name implies, white table wines are generally lighter in body, color and flavor than red table wines, although they can vary in alcohol content and other flavor characteristics. The term “table” refers to how white wine is usually consumed - as an accompaniment to a meal, often as part of the “table setting”.

When most people think of white wine, their first thought is usually of a pale, almost colorless variety like Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio, but white wines come in a wide variety of shades and styles that vary depending on which variety of grape is used and how it’s made. Generally speaking, a white table wine will be clear in color, with aromas and flavors that range from floral and fruity to citrusy and herbal.

White wines are typically made from lighter-skinned grapes, such as Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Pinot Grigio, Chenin Blanc, Muscat, and Viognier. Grapes like Chardonnay can be made into a variety of styles that range from oaked and buttery to unoaked and crisp. Some white wines are fermented and aged in oak barrels, while many are clarified or filtered before bottling, reducing the amount of sediment that might be present.

White wine can be divided into two broad categories: still table wines, which range in taste from dry and light-bodied to full-bodied and sweet; and sparkling wines, which include Champagne, Prosecco, Asti, and Lambrusco. These sparkling wines may have light aromas and flavors of citrus, green apple, melon, peach, or honey.

When pairing white table wines with food, a general rule of thumb is to match the lightness of the wine with the lightness of the dish. For example, a light Sauvignon Blanc may pair well with a simple salad or vegetable dish, while a heavier oaked Chardonnay can stand up to richer entrees like chicken or beef. Depending on the region and the particular style of white wine, it can also be served as an aperitif (before the meal) or a digestif (after the meal).

White table wines can be enjoyed solo or with any kind of cuisine. Generally speaking, white wines pair well with lighter, less-rich foods, including salads, fish, and chicken dishes. They can also be used to make white sangria or light cocktails. For those who prefer a sweeter wine, a Moscato or Gewürztraminer can provide a pleasant and unique taste experience.

When shopping for white table wines, it’s a good idea to take your own preferences into account. Determine which style of wine you like best (such as a dry Chardonnay or a lightweight Pinot Grigio) and pay attention to the flavor profiles listed on the wine label. This will help you select a white table wine that complements your meal and makes for a memorable dining experience.
