Sauvignon Blanc Experience Virtual Tasting
The Lake County Sauvignon Blanc Virtual Tasting took place on May 8, 2020 and offered attendees the opportunity to learn about three of the region’s Sauvignon Blanc wines from the producers who crafted them.
Sauvignon Blanc is Lake County’s flagship varietal – it grows beautifully in the region’s abundant sunshine and clean mountain air. Winemakers understand why Lake County produces some of California’s most delicious Sauvignon Blanc, and now you can too.
Three Lake County producers led viewers through an interactive tasting of Sauvignon Blancs and shared insights for why Lake County is an ideal location to grow this varietal.
- Shannon Ridge High Elevation Sauvignon Blanc 2018, presented by Joy Merrilees, Director of Winemaking and Production
- Dancing Crow Vineyards 2018 Sauvignon Blanc, presented by Adam Forni, Co-owner
- Chacewater Winery 2018 Organic Sauvignon Blanc, presented by Derek Holstein, Consulting Winemaker
