Recommended wine: Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Gruener Veltliner

Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Gruener Veltliner are my top picks for Salad. Sauvignon Blanc and Gruner Veltliner both have herby notes that complement salads with enough acid to match tart vinaigrettes, while a Chardonnay can be a good pick for creamy salad dressings. You could try Arrowood Sonoma Chardonnay. Reviewers quite like it with a 4.7 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 26 dollars per bottle.

Loaded with fruit, it comes at you from all directions. VineyardThe fruit for our 2000 Sonoma County Chardonnay comes from three exceptional vineyards in the Russian River Valley. Each vineyard reflects its distinct terroir and contributes different nuances and characteristics to the wine. Fermentation & AgingBecause the fruit is grown in a relatively cool climate, we put it through barrel and malolactic fermentation to balance out the crisp acids and give the wine a rich and creamy texture. Sur lies aging and stirring in French oak barrels adds hints of toasty oak and complexity to the blend
