It’s time to beat the summer heat.

In the heart of Washington wine country, temperatures for the next 10 days will likely hit triple digits. And west of the Cascade Mountains – where humidity is a much bigger issue, highs will be in the 80s, 90s and occasionally 100s.

Whew!

If you’re going to spend any time outdoors, it’s time to fill your fridge with refreshing white and rosé wines. Chill them down a little more than usual and enjoy their bright acidity.

Here are a dozen crisp white wines we’ve tasted in recent weeks.
