Dream of the beach with this white wine on a fall day

The 2015 Seghesio Vermentino is my current “try if you’re stuck on chardonnay” wine. Filled with the vermentino grape’s distinctive stone fruit notes and amazing minerality, you’d swear this rich, complex white came straight from the island of Corsica rather than Sonoma’s famed Russian River Valley. Let it carry you to a beach on the Mediterranean. $16. The Wine and Cheese Place
