Summer is the time wine drinkers prefer a lighter, crisper variety.  So, Consumer Reports tested dozens of pinot grigio and riesling wines.

Pinot grigio is good with light pasta or grilled fish. 

Rieslings can vary a lot.  Drier rieslings go well with most anything while sweeter rieslings can be good dessert wines.

Testers found some good, inexpensive wines to recommend. 

For a riesling, they liked the 2010 Hogue Late Harvest at $10 a bottle. 

For a pinot grigio, the 2010 Black Swan Vineyards topped the ratings and it costs $8 a bottle.
