Mission Codename Old World meets New

We love it when something different comes our way. And that’s what happened when we tasted today’s Galerie Wines 2013 Naissance Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc.

You see, today’s wine beautifully and elegantly combines Old World winemaking with New World fruit. Winemaker Laura Díaz Muñoz learned her craft under Chris Carpenter, who creates wine for highly acclaimed labels Cardinale, Lokoya, La Jota Vineyard Co., and Mt. Brave. This expert tutelage shines through in today’s wine. Crisp fruit flavors are joined by a subtle chalky mineral note, which is something you typically only find in Sauv Blancs from the Loire Valley.

Please enjoy our boldest recommendation for today’s unbelievably delicious white wine. Cheers!
