Dear Dr. Vinny,
What is the best type of wine to be enjoyed during summer or in a tropical climate?
If you’re trying to rub in the fact that I can’t recall the last time I was in a tropical climate, it’s working. That said, you can drink anything you want in any climate, during any season. But if you’re like me, you’ll reach for crisp whites, dry rosés and sparkling wines when the temperatures climb.
