Whether you love dry white wines or are looking for the perfect pairing for your goat cheese salad, zesty Sauvignon Blanc is sure to please.

FRENCH HERITAGE

These grapes were first found growing wild in France’s Loire Valley and Bordeaux regions, earning them the name Sauvignon Blanc, French for “wild white.” Now, this distinctively delicious white wine thrives in vineyards around the world, especially in California, France, and New Zealand.

DELICATE & ZESTY

Beloved for its zesty notes of citrus and herbs, Sauvignon Blanc is one of the driest white wines you can find. French Sauv Blancs are known for the delicate honeysuckle notes on top of classic green apple and lime flavors, New Zealand selections are extra fresh with aromas of tangerine and fresh-cut grass, and their Californian cousins refresh with richer notes of fig and melon.

FUN WITH FRESH FOODS

Sauvignon Blanc is especially good with foods that match its fresh feel: crisp green salads, tart goat cheese, and herbed fish and chicken. Or, let it balance out the creamy feel of rich hummus or a white pizza.
