Hi all,

I wanted to share some more wines that I have been lucky enough to try through work. Since spring is supposed to arrive soon, and since I live in Los Angeles where it is always warm, it is coming time for light white wines for the nice weather. Brancott Estate, from New Zealand, just came out with a new line of wines, called Flight Song, that are 20% lighter in calories but I think they taste just as good as, if not better than other wines of their variety. There is a Flight Song Pinot Grigio as well as a Sauvignon Blanc, and I particularly love the SB and can see it becoming my go-to wine of the summer.

I don't think the wines are widely available yet, though I was able to find them on some online retailers (like Snooth). I think they will be easier to find in the next few months though, just in time for summer!

I hope you get to try them soon and enjoy them as much as I have!

I am always looking for good light white wines, particularly Sauvignon Blanc, so any suggestions from the group would definitely be appreciated as well.

Thanks for the tip. I'll be on the lookout. Nice to pair with Asian food, which we have a lot of here in the SF Bay Area.
