Summer Wine Recommendations

After just finishing up a tasting in Charlotte I have come across two highly recommended Sauvignon Blancs.

Trey Moore has recommended Sterling Vintner’s Collection Sauvignon Blanc and Heath Evans has recommmended Honig Sauvignon Blanc. Two great white wines for summer.

History: Sauvignon blanc is a green-skinned grape variety which originates from the Bordeaux region of France. The grape gets it name from the French word sauvage (”wild”) and blanc (”white”) due to its early origins as an indigenous grape in western France. It is now planted in many of the world’s regions, producing a crisp, dry, and refreshing white varietal . Conversely, the grape is also a component of the famous dessert wines from Sauternes and Barsac. Sauvignon blanc is widely cultivated in France, New Zealand and California.
