White wine is the other most common type of wine out there. It is made from green grapes (sometimes, on rare occasions, with black grapes, but again, the skin is removed). The flavors are crisp and clear with notes of pears, apples, and apricots riding in almost all of the types of white wine. They can range from sweet to dry. Common white wines are Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, and Chardonnay.
