The Lolonis Vineyard was planted in 1942 and has the oldest Sauvignon Blanc vines in the country. The site is dry-farmed, never irrigated, and always organically farmed on Yokayo Series soils (alluvial loam); additionally, the clonal material originates from top Sauternes châteaux—quite a pedigree. Grapes were harvested on Sept. 9, 2019

The grapes were hand-picked, whole cluster pressed, and barrel fermented in second- and third-use French oak barrels. The juice remained on the lees, with bi-weekly bâtonnage, until bottling on June 25, 2020.

Sauvignon Blanc’s classic match is goat cheese and we think our Lolonis Vineyard release will be absolutely perfect with a sweet, tangy beet and goat cheese salad. If you’re hungry for something more substantial, opt for firm-fleshed white fish like striped bass, grilled with lemon and fresh herbs.
