Off-Dry Whites

Off-Dry whites are popular wines for any occasion and sure to please most everyone. They are sweetened only slightly, however, for those who like their whites even sweeter we can sweeten to taste (or if you like your wines dry we can leave the sweetener out in most cases). Popular varieties like Gewürztraminer and Riesling come in many styles and price categories. There are also several unique blends to try.
