August 4, 2020 is National White Wine Day, the perfect (almost) mid-week excuse to pop open a bottle of one of summer’s best beverages.
White wine can vary widely in flavor, sweetness, and acidity. Common notes range from warm oak, ginger, and spice, to light citrus, creamy pear, and juicy peach and melon.
Try pairing a dry Riesling with a summer salad, or opt for a bubbly Prosecco-style white if you’re hosting a seafood-based dinner.

Pretty much any holiday based around white wine gives us a great excuse to pour a glass of the crisp, chilled beverage to sip outside by a bonfire or enjoy with the fresh fish dinner hot off the grill. While researching National White Wine Day, which is celebrated on August 4, I discovered that it was created six years ago by a woman named Jace Shoemaker-Galloway — a writer and author who also created holidays like National Wine and Cheese Day and National Cookie Exchange Day.
Lucky for us, Shoemaker-Galloway has given us an excuse to pop open a bottle on a random Tuesday, and for that we are grateful. Let’s celebrate by enjoying the skinless grape fermentation process that leads us to one of our favorite alcoholic beverages by toasting with some of these favorites.

1. Kaiser Vineyard Chardonnay from Fox Run Vineyards
Living by the motto, “Drink wine, be happy,” Fox Run provides a welcoming environment that makes it easy to explore a variety of delicious wines, including their chardonnay.
“Our Kaiser Vineyard Chardonnay is our flagship wine here at Fox Run,” said Samantha Dreverman, part of the marketing and events team. “We start all of our tastings with it because it’s 100% estate grown — the vines are just outside our tasting room. It’s medium bodied, lightly oaked, and appeals to a wide variety of wine drinkers for its creamy texture and light fruit flavors that are enjoyable without being overwhelming.”
The Kaiser Vineyard Chardonnay is distributed in Florida, Massachussets, Northern Virginia, Vermont, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, and throughout New York state; they ship throughout the country through their website.
2. Stratus White from Stratus Vineyards
Being from Western New York, I’ve had the pleasure of visiting the Stratus just over the border in beautiful Niagara on the Lake. That destination itself has a wide variety of wineries — but nothing impressed me quite like stratus. The most unique feature about the vineyard is that it is a gravity flow winery, leading to a more natural, higher quality product.
With the essence of peach and pineapple, the Stratus white is a wonderful selection.
“A truly unique white comprised of an eclectic collection of varietals — [there’s] nothing quite like it from around the globe,” said Suzanne Janke, estate director.
