Wine & Spirits: A sharp touch of citrus cuts the unctuous texture of this wine, a full-bodied Sauvignon for roasted white meats. "Best Buy"
Wine maker notes
I love the way this wine displays characteristics from both vineyards - the ripe stone fruit flavors from Bale Lane provide such a wonderful counterpoint to the more citrus, mineral notes I get from the Gamble Ranch fruit. The 2007 Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc is full of ripe citrus and melon aromas, which are layered with an earthy, herbal note ending with a crisp finish. I love the mingling of the lush, slightly tropical nuances and the bright, refreshing notes that linger into the finish. - Laurie Hook
Beringer Vineyards – The Beginning
Our history dates back to the year 1868, when Jacob Beringer, enticed by the splendid opportunities of the new world, sailed from his home in Mainz, Germany to New York. However, New York did not appeal to Jacob and after hearing that the warm and Mediterranean plains of California were quite similar to the vineyards back home, he soon made his way to the Napa Valley. It was here that Jacob Beringer, along with his brother, Frederick Beringer, purchased land for the first Beringer Vineyard in 1875.
Beringer Vineyards – Today
Beringer Vineyards holds the distinction of being the oldest continuously operating winery in the Napa Valley. It is also one of the very few wineries that survived the draconian prohibition of 1922, which lasted over a decade. The estate is also in the National Register for Historic Places as a historic district, a status it has held since 2001. With its perfect blend of modern technology and age old traditions, Beringer Vineyards still produces memorable wines that continue to bring recognition to the company and all of Napa Valley.
