    "Now that fashion has shifted from once trendy white blends to #roséallday, the brands like Family Tree that remain are ones that have stood the test of time. They’ve found an audience because they offer considerable charm and appeal — and, in this instance, solid value. This is a rich and rewarding blend of chardonnay, viognier, gewürztraminer and chardonnay musqué, with the majority fermented in stainless tanks to preserve freshness and fragrance, and a portion fermented and aged in oak barrels for increased complexity and texture. As a result, it’s nicely balanced, layered with flavour and refreshment, which makes it truly enjoyable with or without a meal. Drink now to 2022."

  2. $237.00

    Wildass Wines

    Canada (Canada), Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    12 x 750 ml


    The wine delivers a balanced, textured, and crisp palate. On this Sauvignon Blanc centered assemblage one will find aromatics of crisp green apples and boxwood shrub, with some sweet caramel notes stemming from the 20 months that a quarter of this wine spent in new French barrels.

    Jean Luc Colombo

    France (France), Languedoc-Roussillon (France)

    12 x 750ml

    Fresh Fruit, White Meat


    La Violette is a pure Viognier which shows authenticity, freshness, and ripeness. Brilliant, light straw color. On the nose, a wild flower bouquet, possessing delicate aromatics of peaches, dried fruit and white flowers. An elegant, dry wine with rich flavors of acacia flowers, yellow peaches and exotic fruits. Lovely as an aperitif or with seafood appetizers. Great with salads, chicken dishes and crab cakes.​ > Learn More

  4. $299.88

    Quail's Gate

    British Columbia (Canada), Okanagan Valley (Canada)

    12 x 750 ml

    Cured Meat, Ham, Rich Fish, Scallop, Soft Cheese


    Pristine, tangy, racy.
    "A fan favourite, Quails' Gate's Chenin is a go-to for BC wine lovers. This vintage is blended with Sauvignon Blanc (9%) and Viognier (4%).
    Expect bracing lemon aromas layered with apple skin, dusty wildflowers, mineral, melon and honey. It has focused acidity that drives right down the palate but that is carved off by a hint of creaminess. Very racy vintage here, the fruit is less effusive than previous ones, but it's pristine and mouthwatering."

    Gerard Betrand

    France (France), Languedoc-Roussillon (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Cured Meat, Ham, Rich Fish, Soft Cheese


    "A beautifully layered, medium-bodied white, with intertwining mango, pureed pineapple and tangerine notes that are honey-kissed and matched to floral, baking spice and mineral details. Lingering finish."

At WineOnline.ca we absolutely love white wine. White grapes, such as Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Viognier, Verdejo, Riesling, Garganega etc, (there are 1000’s more), produce roughly the same quantity of grapes as their red counterparts, but for reasons unknown, many people believe a good white wine should cost less than a quality bottle of red wine. A quality white wine typically takes as much time and energy to produce as a quality red wine. Neither must be expensive, but to expect more quality from a popular white wine for less money than a red, does not make sense.

Of course, white wines can be all over the map. There is sweet white wine, the most famous of which is, of course, Sauternes which is produced in Bordeaux. Sauternes is produced from the Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon grapes, though you will never see Sauvignon Blanc or Semillon written on the label. Chateau Yquem would be the most recognizable name/producer in Sauternes, and of course, the most expensive of the Sauternes producers. The Hungarian version of iconic sweet wine, is Tokaj, which is perhaps not quite as famous, but equally delicious. There are dry white wines which are produced all over the world, but many would suggest the best dry white wine is produced in Burgundy, with the most popular white wine produced in Burgundian churning out Montrachet or derivatives of Montrachet, such as Batard Monthrachet, or Bievenue Batard Montrachet. All of the white wine in Burgundy is produced from the Chardonnay grape, though once again, you will rarely, if ever, see Chardonnay written on the label. If you are looking for a different style of Chardonnay, perhaps something oakier, you may want to consider finding great white wine types in different areas of California. Napa Chardonnay, or Chardonnay from Santa Barbara are a couple of the more famous areas for production. If you are looking for the best white wine, you might consider looking in Spain, Portugal, Italy or even South America. There are countless good white wine produced in the Mediterranean countries where they often consume more white wine than red. I believe there are a number of reasons for this. 1st of all, it is typically very warm and people want to drink something cool and refreshing, 2nd, there is a lot of fishing and it is hard to argue that white wine does not go better with fish than red wine.

Some white wine lovers might suggest the best Sauvignon Blanc comes from New Zealand, my personal favourite regions for Sauvignon Blanc production are Sancerre and even those from Southern Austria and Slovenia. I must impress on you that I am of the opinion that best is always in the eye of taste buds of the wine drinker. There is no right or wrong, and only opinion. Whether you like bold white wines, or elegant light white wines, sweet white wine, or dry, at WineOnline.ca we scour the world to ensure you are drinking the best, and the best value white wines there are anywhere.
