Geyser Peak aimed to capture the best of Sauvignon Blanc's identity by blending grassier elements with citrus and mineral notes and passion fruit and melon flavors. As such, our Sauvignon Blanc offers authentic varietal character that can be appreciated by both the novice and the connoisseur.
|Wine maker notes
|The fresh style of Sauvignon Blanc for which Geyser Peak is famous is best enjoyed in the first 18 months after release when the fruit flavors are most abundant and the acidity bright and crisp.
|One of California’s oldest and most renowned wineries, Geyser Peak Winery was founded in 1880 by Augustus Quitzow, a pioneer in Alexander Valley winemaking, Geyser Peak has flourished as an award-winning winery for more than 130 years. Quitzow chose the original winery site in Geyserville for its vantage point of the famed Geysers Geothermal area. The white steam that billowed from the geysers along the mountain slopes provided the winery with a spectacular ‘view of the clouds’.
Today, Geyser Peak pays fond tribute to its past roots in Alexander Valley as it sets forth on a new path into the Dry Creek Valley Appellation where the winery has recently relocated. Although the address is new, the commitment to the highest quality artisan winemaking is not. Geyser Peak will continue to “Reach For Peak” for many years to come.
