2010 Chateau Ste Michelle Dry Riesling ($9)
Chateau Ste Michelle sells far more of the off-dry version of this Washington-state Riesling, but this zesty, refreshing wine is much easier to pair with food (look for the yellow label, not the white).
2010 Geyser Peak Sauvignon Blanc ($13)
Vintage after vintage, Geyser Peak's lively, grapefruit-scented Sauvignon Blanc maintains a fine balance between Sauvignon Blanc's tropical- and citrus-fruit notes and its grassy, herbal character.

2010 Paul Blanck Pinot Blanc d'Alsace ($13)
Dry Alsatian whites like this crisp bottling, from an estate that dates back to the 17th century, are a go-to for pairing. Blanck's grapes are farmed without chemicals, which makes the wine additionally appealing.
