Thanks to the terrific popularity of our Jazzie Sauvignon Blanc and the addition of our Grace White Blend, we needed to find a new source of fruit. We simply outgrew the capacity of Dalla Gasperina Vineyard to supply our needs for both! After an extensive search, we were fortunate to find the Quercus Ranch in Lake County.
Located in the Big Valley District; Lake County, Quercus Ranch is situated at 1350 feet above sea level. This is a marked contrast to Dalla Gasperina, which is located on the floor of Napa Valley on Galleron Road in Rutherford. While the altitude is certainly different, we found that the fruit is remarkably similar to what we have been getting and will enable us to continue to produce our Sauvignon Blanc in the distinctive Jazzie style.
We are also very excited to be working with fruit sourced from extremely healthy and mature vines.
