International Sauvignon Blanc Day is

May 6, 2022


Sauvignon Blanc deserves its own day to be celebrated. This racy grape has achieved world-wide popularity, propelling Sauvignon Blanc to top-tier white wine status alongside Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio.

While the grape is grown all over the world, not all regions and sites are created equal.

As one of the most widely planted wine grapes in the world, sauvignon blanc can offer a wide range of styles and flavors.  Certain appellations have emerged as prime spots for growing sauvignon blanc — each with its own distinctive expression.

Sauvignon Blanc
is a Perfect Pairing

Chefs around the globe love the pairing potential of a crisp sauvignon blanc. From the tropical and stone fruit notes in warmer climates, to the bright minerality & citrus in cooler climates, sauvignon blanc gives the world’s culinarians a palette of possibilities.

🍇New Zealand changed the game with Sauvignon Blanc
😉If you asked me to pick up a bottle of Sauv Blanc before my wine journey started I would have totally shown up with a bottle from New Zealand. The grape might have its ancestral home in France but this tiny 2-island country really put Sauvignon Blanc on the map
🤓The country first got serious about Sauv Blanc in 1975 but 10 years later is when we really started to see a boom in plantings across the country. An outbreak of phylloxera coupled with a government lead campaign to pull out less common Müller-Thurgau and Chenin Blanc primed Sauvignon Blanc to rise exponentially
🍷Wineries like villamariawines and kimcrawfordwine became leaders in spreading the New Zealand wine gospel globally. Both companies were also part of the handful of first wineries to move their portfolios to screw caps!
🤓Both wineries came from humble beginnings into household names. With Villa Maria starting in Auckland by George Fistonich in the 60s and Kim Crawford originally as a virtual winery started by Kim and Erica Crawford in 90s
🍇Marlborough seemed to capture both estates, the region broke the virtual nature of Crawford and was the second winery location for Villa Maria where both wineries continued to make the quaffable wines that we have all become familiar with
✨Tasting the 2020 Marlborough productions from each
🍷The Villa Maria Private Bin has aromas of grapefruit, jalapeno, lemongrass, and a noticeable mineral streak that is marked by the left and green berry notes and a clean finish.
🍷The Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc is a regional expression of gooseberry that meets tropical and notes pea pods. It is vivid and expressive that bold and memorable style of Sauv Blanc from NZ

🍷Family wineries bottling up a legacy in New Zealand
🤓New World wine regions are always thought of, well, new! BUT family-run multigeneration wineries buck that comment. Today I am diving into 2 family-owned wineries in Marlborough babichwines and saintclairwine
🍇Babich is a winery part of the fabric of New Zealand wine. Celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2016 the winery has made wines from vineyards in Auckland, Hawke's Bay, and in 1991 making their first Marlborough Sauv Blanc. Spanning 3 generations and counting!
🍷Their 2020 vintage Sauvignon Blanc is part of the Classics Series. The wine is sustainably certified and in the glass, the wine is beautifully perfumed with notes of passionfruit, mandarin orange, tarragon and great florality. On the palate, the wine is mouth-filling with a bright and long finish
🍇Next up is Saint Clair Family Estate. The winery was started and is still owned by Neal and Judy Ibbotson, who established themselves in Marlborough in the late 70s. Their pioneering spirit really relates to the name of the winery; named after James Sinclair who first settled the property. The winery today is run by their children and the wines are made by a stellar winemaking team. Made up of Hamish Clark, Kyle Thompson and Stewart Maclennan
🍷In the glass, their 2019 Sauv Blanc is very inviting. The wine is filled with aromas of quince, blackcurrant, a mix of ripe citrus notes, and that classic Sauv Blanc herbaceousness.
On the palate, the wine is dry and lean with a razor edge acidity and a balance in the glass.
🥰Loving these tasting notes?
👉You can find both of these wines in LCBOs across the city. Check out Summerhill, Eglington and Laird, and Spadina and Front St. locations
💁🏻‍♀️Next Friday, May 7th is Sauvignon Blanc day, are you ready?

Why not celebrate early?! Tomorrow’s International Sauvignon Blanc day! What makes Boeger Sauv Blanc unique? A touch of Flora is added. It’s a hybrid of Gewurztraminer and Sémillon developed at UC Davis. Greg Boeger was able to get his hands on some Flora in the early 80s. Adds a floral character to the wine and bit of spice. Delicious! #sauvblancday #hammocktime ...

💫🥂Three things to celebrate today… 1. It’s Friday. 2. It’s International Sauvignon Blanc Day #sauvblancday AND… most importantly, 3. IT’S MOTHER’S DAY WEEKEND! So on that note, welcome to today’s Wine Babes Club feature…

🎬: Introducing Simone of _goodwinegirl #goodwinegirl

📍Based in Sussex, England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 🇬🇧.
❝My first and fondest memory of wine was when my beloved Nonna would serve me a little glass to have alongside a serving of her exceptional slow cooked lamb ragù . My love of wine and appreciation for home cooking, influenced by my Italian heritage, was sparked at a young age and has stayed with me ever since.”

❝I've worked at the UK's leading wine specialist retailer for nearly 3 years and I'm currently applying do my WSET Diploma. I'm lucky to have some exceptional English Vineyards on my doorstep, but I really can't wait to travel to more iconic wine regions next year.”

❝Fun fact? My surname is the Latin word for 'Love’.”

❝Favourite wine? I'm a Chardonnay girl so I'll gravitate towards a white from the Maconnais.”

Today is International Sauvignon Blanc Day so I wanted to share one of my favorites with you all! The Willamette Valley doesn’t have much Sauvignon Blanc, but there are some great ones, including this one here from patriciagreencellars that is one of my absolute favorites! ❤️ A beautiful mix of stone fruits and citrus with nice acidity and brightness. 🍑🍋

Highly recommend this along with Sauvignon Blanc from jchristopherwines and andrewriechers - also from the Willamette Valley. 🙌
