Sauvignon Blanc is characterized by its green skin and production of a refreshing, crisp, dry white wine. This grape orginates in the Bordeaux region of France. It is a popular varietal in California, where you will also see it labeled "Fume Blanc."


Livermore Valley vintners like to put their own spin on this classic varietal. Always crisp and refreshing, flavors range from vibrant lemongrass and herb to tart green apple, round melon and fig.
