Thanks to daylight savings, the days are longer! Sort of, not really. But the sun shines later on into the day, giving us more reason and desire to go out with friends and coworkers after work for Happy Hour. And there are more wine options on the menu like sangrias and roses. But, frankly, our favorite happy hour drinks in Spring and Summer are the best dry wines you can find all year long.
Do you really know what a dry wine is? What makes a dry wine dry?
A dry wine is a wine that has no residual sugar; a dry wine is not sweet. During the fermentation process, yeast consumes the sugars of the juice. In making sweet wines like Stella Rosa wines, for example, the fermentation process stops before the yeast consumes all the sugars. In making dry wines, the fermentation process runs until all the sugars are gone.
