3W

Influenced by slightly warmer regions such as Tuscany and Campania, Italy; Alsace, France; Willamette Valley, Oregon; and Marlborough, New Zealand, 3W wines are primarily steel-fermented, with some aging in concrete or neutral oak barrels. They resemble 1% milk, show increased fruit and texture, and vibrant acidity. Popular varietals are Vernaccia, Falanghina, Riesling, Pinot Grigio/Gris, and Sauvignon Blanc. Spring vegetables and soft, mild cheeses are great pairing options.
