A National Holiday for Wine Lovers

A National Holiday for Wine Lovers
Celebrate National Sauvignon Blanc Day Today


istock_000024252290smallmainimageRejoice! Today is National Sauvignon Blanc day. One of the most popular white wine varietals, sauvignon blanc is known for its precision and refreshing crisp, “green” character. Sauvignon Blanc is produced all over the world, including France (the grape’s homeland), New Zealand, South Africa and California. It is also one of the grapes that makes Bordeaux’s famous desert wine Sauternes. 

If you love this glorious grape like we do, you'll want to chill a bottle (or three) and join in the conversation taking place right now! RSVP here and use #SauvBlanc on Twitter to partake in all the fun.

If you're not sure what to open, here are some of our favorite sauvignon blancs from around the world with the Bottlenotes Team’s tasting notes:
