Ditto and we always swap out two bottles for red! So we always have red and white for cooking.

Here is my housewine. It is an Italian dry tablewine. Hearty flavor. Fairly inexpensive. I like to keep a bottle in the fridge at all times for cooking or drinking. Sometimes I drink it on ice with some Perrier and/or use it for spritzers....

A lot of odd aromas found in wine.
Wow! I had no idea!

I ended up buying Lucky Duck Sauvignon Blanc from Walmart. The only white wine I like to drink is Moscato and that wouldn't work. Thanks for all the suggestions. I think I will play around with various white wines until I find one I love. I'll have to find this Monkey Bay everyone is talking about.

I second this. and pretty much, I use dry white Vermouth (Noilly Prat, preferably) instead of white wine in most recipes.

Thanks to my fondess for Martini's, Vermouth goes as quick as wine around here.
