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

This wine originates in vineyards situated next to the famous Steinberg vineyard. It's round and refreshing, with light touches of lemon and lime on the nose, a slightly sweet mouthfeel, and juicy, fruity flavors.

Ample lemon-lime flavors balanced with crisp, lively acidity and carried through on a long finish. This wine is a great accompaniment for a holiday meal or, because it is in a liter size, serve it at your holiday party!

A nice bottle of Rheingau Riesling, finishing on the dry side with hints of orange and lemon/lime and a nice vein of minerality flowing through it. Enjoy this food-friendly offering with turkey or ham.

This is a richly flavored Riesling from the Rheingau. A touch of spritz from the temperature controlled fermentation greets your tongue in the beginning. After letting the wine breathe the luscious peach flavors emerge, but healthy acid stops the fruit from becoming clingy and syrupy. Enjoy this wine with your favorite spicy Asian fare.
