  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 tastes bone dry, and it offers acidity that’s so clean and racy, it makes your mouth feel like it’s shining. The flavors of limes, lemons, hay, white pepper and vanilla are delightful.

An everyday favorite year after year, the Geyser Peak has softer tropical fruits mixed in with the classic lemon and grapefruit. The herbal notes are not overpowering but well-integrated, and add a layer of depth to an otherwise crisp and easy-drinking white.

Geyser Peak winery has a long history and their winemaking philosophy is the same today as it was more than a century ago. They create top quality wines combining traditional Old World practices with modern techniques and offer value. This Sauvignon Blanc is a blend of grapes from Sonoma, Lake, Mendocino and Solano Counties, and even far-off Clarksburg. Blending from these diverse appellations ensures the multi-layered flavor profile that is a signature of Geyser Peak Sauvignon Blanc. A perpetual award winner, Wine Enthusiast Magazine named it #15 on their Top 100 Best Buys of 2013. With a score of 90 points they said "This tastes bone dry, and it offers acidity that’s so clean and racy, it makes your mouth feel like it’s shining. The flavors of limes, lemons, hay, white pepper and vanilla are delightful."
