  Founded in 1880, Geyser Peak Winery is one of California’s oldest and most award-winning wineries. Founded by Augustus Quitzow, the winery was built in 1882 in Geyserville, making it one of the pioneering California wineries of the time. Geyser Peak Winery consists of 5 vineyards, one of which is located in the Russian River Valley AVA, while the others are in Alexander Valley. Since most of the grapes come from Alexander Valley, the growing regions have long ripening seasons. Alexander Valley is a great region for growing Cabernet Sauvignon vines, but Chardonnay, Zinfandel, Merlot, and Sauvignon Blanc are also successfully grown. Ondine Chattan and Jaeson Mackura, winemakers for Geyser Peak Winery, are also behind the screw cap movement that is very controversial among wineries and consumers alike. All of their white wines are bottled using screw caps, or “Stelvin closures” as they are often called (Stelvin is actually a brand of screw caps, like Ziplock is a brand synonymous with zip bags and Xerox is a brand synonymous with photocopy machines).

This very aromatic and refreshing white has a very complex nose of lime, lemon, minerals and a bit of gooseberry which you normally only find in New Zealand wines. The palate is full bodied and rich with lemons, other citrus flavors and, again, a bit

Classic aromas of grapefruit, citrus, lemon zest and lemongrass jump out of the glass and proudly proclaim the wine's varietal character. A generous, fruit-forward palate shows juicy citrus flavors of grapefruit and tangerine, balanced by

The latest Sauvignon Blanc from Geyser Peak is deliciously crisp and packed with flavors of lime, gooseberry, and tropical fruit. Try it with anything from summer salads to sushi.
