Lolonis Vineyard, Redwood Valley Sauvignon Blanc

SAUVIGNON BLANC

Redwood Valley

LOLONIS VINEYARD

This historic Prohibition-era ranch boasts some of the oldest known Vitis vinifera plantings in California. The Sauvignon Blanc was planted in 1945. The vines are head-trained and dry-farmed organically on red clay soils strewn with fist-sized rocks. An extreme diurnal shift necessitates longer hang times (and a steady temperament). The vineyard is overseen by the capable Athan Poulos.
