Best white wines for 2019 you can pick up from your local supermarket; Wine can be a minefield. From Pinot Grigio to Sauvignon Blanc or a decent Chardonnay, it's tough to know where to start. We take you through the best white wines you can get from your local retailer in 2019.

Byline: Mica Anthony

Do you know your Chardonnay from your Sauvignon? The wine aisles of a supermarket and online stores can be impossible to crack if you don't know your basics.

What county to go for? Do I want a full bodied wine or one with great legs? Does more expensive mean better taste? Is Chardonnay really that bad?

It's actually much easier to find one you'll love, and keep coming back to.

Make notes of what notes and flavours you like in your wine, and when you'll be drinking it, can all play a major part in what types of wines you'll enjoy most.

Will you be enjoying your wine with food? Will you be pouring a glass as you sink into the sofa at the end of a hectic week at work?

Here are some key tips to remember:

So, put simply, both Pinot Grigio and Sauvignon Blanc are light fruity white wines that tend to be on the dryer side with citrus notes, while Chardonnay is said to be heavier with more buttery notes.
