Our selection comes from the winemaking team at Ca' Momi in Napa Valley. They started off by offering their impressive facility and winemaking services to other winemakers who couldn't afford their own. This was such a successful operation that they decided to make their own wine.

Stefano Migotto and his partner Dario De Conte both studied winemaking in their native Italy. They brought their talent and experience with them when they, along with partner Valentina Guolo-Migotto, founded Ca' Momi in 2006. It seems like it was an effortless transition because, in one of the most difficult industries in the world, they have succeeded.

Their success is due to the obvious hard work it takes to run any profitable business, but also to the attention to detail. And, if there's one thing that makes winemaking as much an art as a science, it is the details.

Obviously, no detail was overlooked in the creation of this beauty. Sauvignon Blanc seems to love California, as it is probably the state's most successful white grape. Here, it retains its freshness, lovely ripe flavors and piquant acidity.

Sauvignon Blanc can taste very different from other countries. But here, it seems to shine. The fresh flavors of apple and pineapple mixed with an herbal swing and a lovely, luscious finish is its stock-in-trade. Migotto uses no oak, leaving the natural essences of the wine undisturbed. All the flavor of this magnificent grape shines on and on brilliantly.
