This week, while picking up a few bottles to celebrate a new client project, I saw this bottle on the shelf, and the simplistic, yet elegantly stylish label got me; the label reminded me of some type of poster that one would see in maybe 17th century France.

Upon trying it, it brightened my taste buds and reaffirmed why Sauvignon Blanc has been one of my favorite grapes for the past year. This wine has a very fresh and uplifting taste, as well as it doesn't overwhelm you with raw citrus, but has a demure, yet ecstatic, acidity to it that reminds you of an elegant martini.

This wine is a keeper!

We believe in finding something that you like the taste of, outside of the basic brands that you have been force-fed over the years through a combination of ethnically targeted advertising, and what people in your family have historically been drinking.
