Whether it's a small celebration at the office, an impromptu drink to round off the day, or simply the start of the weekend, you need no special excuse for an aperitif. Just a good mood, complemented by the perfect light wine. It needs to be spritzy and smooth, just like the guests’ conversations.
Light white wines for an aperitif
Fresh dry white wines, which stimulate our appetite for tasty nibbles, or a subsequent midday or evening meal, are ideal as aperitif wines. It is important that they are lighter than the wines which will later be served with the meal. Swiss white wines made with Chasselas, or Riesling-Silvaner grapes, are very popular aperitif wines. Crisp wines from the Loire, or light Italian Pinot Grigio wines, are often served as an aperitif.
