About This Wine:
Together, they have integrated the vineyard and winery in the Dry Creek Valley growing area of Sonoma County so that farming practices are optimally aligned with the desired characteristics of the finished wines. The winemaking style at Quivira emphasizes balance and transparency of terroir, utilizing thoughtful low-input practices to produce cuvees that proudly showcase their varietals and origins.
In crafting these wines, Chappelle uses a light touch when working with the raw materials. He likes to develop complexity by judiciously using a few techniques: blending, co-fermentation, phased harvesting and barrel aging — both oak and acacia wood.
Quintessential pairings for the 2018 Quivira Sauvignon Blanc would be chilled fresh raw oysters or goat cheese in almost any iteration. Feeling more adventurous? Then try the wine with boldly seasoned, even slightly spicy cuisine, especially seafood, poultry and pork preparations.
