One varietal, three different regions, three different tastes.

One of California’s oldest and most renowned wineries, Geyser Peak Winery was founded in 1880 by Augustus Quitzow, a pioneer in Alexander Valley winemaking, Geyser Peak has flourished as an award-winning winery for more than 130 years. Quitzow chose the original winery site in Geyserville for its vantage point of the famed Geysers Geothermal area. The white steam that billowed from the geysers along the mountain slopes provided the winery with a spectacular ‘view of the clouds’. The Russian River Valley region features a cool climate that is ideally suited to producing the intense, fruit-forward and vibrant style of Sauvignon Blanc that is Geyser Peak Winery’s signature wine. Geyser Peak’s Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from a variety of areas giving it the unique style that has made Geyser Peak a consistent winner in the Best Buy category year after year. 2013 Geyser Peak Sauvignon Blanc high in fruit flavors with bright, crisp acidity. Retails for <$14

Mud House Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough is sourced from the award-winning Woolshed vineyard which is located in the upper Wairau Valley of New Zealand as well as from growers in the Awatere and Wairau Valleys. Fresh, crisp, and young, the Mud House Sauvignon Blanc is racy and vibrant with a juicy acidity. This crowd pleasing value wine retails for <$12.

For over 35 years there has been a select group of winemakers in the Napa Valley who have been pioneering the craft of fine winemaking. One of the founding members of this lineage established pristine vineyards in Oakville, and focused on the meticulous principles of small-lot winemaking and his unwavering pursuit to capture the supreme expression of the land. Franciscan Estate was established in 1973 and began producing wines of true character from the Oakville estate in 1975. Franciscan Estate Sauvignon Blanc sources fruit from several Napa Valley sub-appellations, producing a wine that can be defined where the Loire meets New Zealand by way of Napa Valley. A fruit forward wine with a long, clean and citrusy finish. This wine retails for <$17.
