I have been asked to make some dry white wine. I have made wine once. It did turn out well. But I have no clue how to make a wine dry.
Anyone have a recipe and tips to make it dry?

Wine automatically goes dry. You don't have to do anything.

A dry wine is just one with no to very little residual sugar. Make sure to use a yeast that has an abv limit beyond the possible abv based of an original gravity reading of your wine must. If doing anything at 14%-18%abv I would suggest lalvin K1-V1116, anything under 14%abv then I like lalvin 71b-1122.
