There's something about clean and pure white wines that makes them welcome year-round. The 2012 Barnard Griffin Columbia Valley Fumé Blanc ($10) is just such a wine for all seasons. For such a value-priced wine, it has an array of fruit flavors, from tropical to citrus to melon and a bit of richness in the midpalate. Try the Washington white with any kind of shellfish or just as a happy-hour sipper, whether on the patio or by the fireplace. Available at Surdyk's, Byerly's Ridgedale, Dolce Vita, the Wine Thief, the Little Wine Shoppe and Robbinsdale Wine and Spirits
