The Feast of Sauvignon Blancs

Weekly Thursday Tasting

Sauvignon Blanc is one of the most widely planted grape varieties in the world. Because it can adapt to a number of different soil types, it offers a wide range of aromas from steely minerality to grass and gunflint. And from fruit (lime, grapefruit) to vegetal (asparagus, bell pepper), depending on where the grapes are grown.

Please join us this Thursday as we sample a few wonderfully refreshing examples of SB: Apud Sariacum and Joseph Mellot from France's Loire Valley (Sancerre), Taft Street from the Russian River Valley in California, Ned from New Zealand, and Echeverria from Chile. These wines offer an excellent representation of the aromas mentioned above. The Feast of Sauvignon Blancs begins at 6pm.

Please join us this Thursday from 6 to 8.
