Light white wines for summer under £20

As we approach the height of summer, we’ve collated a selection of wonderful white wines to enjoy throughout the season, all under £20 and weighing in at no more than 13% abv.

Summer often sees us reaching for wines of a lighter hue, and while we have some wonderful rosé recommendations from both Italy and Portugal, here we’ve decided to focus on white wines.

The selection below showcases a variety of grapes and regions from both hemispheres, taking in New Zealand, Italy and Australia, as well as a few intriguing curios – all perfect picnic accompaniments.

Get white wines chilling in the fridge on particularly hot days, but take them out 10 minutes before serving, thereby ensuring the aromas and flavours perform at their best.
