Red Wine Lover Switching to White. Any Suggestions, besides "Don't Do it!" ?

ellaj | Oct 3, 2006 09:11 PM

Because of migraines etc I am switching my day to day wine drinking from reds to whites.
So far I am enjoying alborino, vernaccia, prosecco (I buy an inexpensive bottle at Trader Joe's), and a pinot gris from Chateau St Michelle out of Washington.
Have nothing at all against chards but I haven't found one I like as well as these others.
Also, I don't usually care for German Gewurztraminer or Reisling, preferring to drink those from the Alsace region. I'm telling you all of this so you'll have some idea of what I like.

Lately I cannot find the Chateau St Michelle pinot gris (tried their chard and was disappointed) and often have trouble finding vernaccia unless I go a town or two away. Alborino is often at the top end of what I can spend so not for frequent drinking.
I try to stay in the $10. range most of the time.

Do you have any recs for me? Certain bottles that you enjoy? I'd love to go shopping armed with a list of possibilities.

I should add that with my limited wine knowledge I've surely missed out on many nice wines and am very open and eager to try wines not mentioned above.
I'll appreciate any help you can offer!
