In 1964, Louis Honig purchased a 68-acre ranch in the heart of the Napa Valley and planted it with Sauvignon blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. For the next few years, Louis sold the grapes to neighboring wineries with the dream of retiring one day from his San Francisco advertising business and making wine from his vineyard in Rutherford. Before he could realize his dream, Louis passed away, leaving the estate to his children and grandchildren. In 1981, as a tribute to his legacy, the family rallied together to produce several hundred cases of Louis Honig Sauvignon Blanc in the vineyard's old tractor barn. The wine won a Gold Medal at the Orange County Fair, and thus, the winery was born. In 1984, at the age of 22, Louis' grandson, Michael Honig, took over management of the vineyard and winery. With a lot of hard work and a beat up pickup truck, Honig managed to get their Sauvignon Blanc into most fine restaurants in California. From there, production and distribution grew. In 1987, in addition to the Sauvignon Blanc for which they were already known, they began producing small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon. Family members Regina Weinstein joined them in 1997 and Steven Honig in 2000. Read less

Great everyday white for the summer ... so I guess that makes it a great summer wine. :-)

Very good desert wine. Not overly sweet, has good acidity. Good balance with aromas of apricot and honey. Tastes range from apricot, honey, leche and grapfruit. Lovely wine.

Full-flavored and fully balanced among melon, papaya, grapefruit, lime zest with vibrant acidity and a nice round feel on the palate.

Peach, honeydew melon, white fig and floral notes are complimented by vanilla, nutmeg, and lemon peel. Fruit forward, with a rich mid-palate accented by toasty oak and a long, crisp, minerally finish.
