The Honig Family purchased their 68-acre vineyard in Rutherford in 1964, and sold the grapes they grew to neighboring wineries. Today, the Honig family are leaders in sustainability, both in the vineyard and the winery, and what began as a small “garage” winery has today become a successful family enterprise. Using solar power and sustainable farming methods, winemaker, Kristin Belair focuses on two varietals: Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon. This focus allows her to produce handcrafted wines that are a true expression of the vineyard.
I've been a joyful member of the Honig wine club for over 20 years. This "entry level" Sauvignon Blanc has never disappointed. Under the deft hands of Kristin Belair it is always crisp, clean, medium bodied, and well balanced. The fruit laced palate offers flavors of grapefruit, lemon, lime, pear, peach, melon, stone, honeysuckle, and floral notes. Enjoy it with fish and chips or spicy pad Thai. We won't even mention how beautiful the bottle is.
