Why We're Drinking It:

$0 Shipping Selection (6+/btls)

The Crafting:  Our Sauvignon Blanc was picked and hand-sorted in mid-September and then pressed whole cluster. After allowing the juice to cold settle, it was racked to stainless steel barrels for fermentation. After fermentation, the wine remained in stainless steel to age for six months before bottling.

The Tasting: Our vibrant 2015 Sauvignon Blanc delivers enticing floral notes of jasmine and honeysuckle, pear, sweet citrus, and a wet-sand minerality. The bright aromas follow on the palate and are joined with hints of tropical fruit, citrus zest, and stone fruit. A full mouthfeel finishes clean, refreshing, and balanced.

The Pairing:  The 2015 Huge Bear Sauvignon Blanc has an acidity that is very food friendly. We suggest a salad with arugula, persimmon, and goat cheese; baked chicken with a light mushroom cream sauce; or a goat cheese and leek galette.

The Story to Know:

From the winery:

At Huge Bear, we’re passionate about making exceptional, hand-crafted wines. Each wine is made in small lots, and is meant to be enjoyed with family and friends.

Our wines are inspired by California's rich history and Sonoma County’s long-standing reputation of growing exceptional wine grapes that produce exciting wines. It’s this adventurous spirit of the west that is captured in each bottle of Huge Bear.

The Huge Bear name comes from an article we discovered in the local historic archives from the mid 1800s. The story chronicles the adventures of a huge bear that would come down from the mountains in search of food, surprising the local Justice of the Peace whose home he routinely raided. That elusive bear was never trapped. During this time Thomas Knight (namesake of Knights Valley) was leading the charge to raise the Bear Flag and pronounce California as an independent state. We imagine that the Bear Flaggers were inspired by this local bear, and decided to celebrate the bear’s independent spirit on the California State Bear Flag.

Perfect Pairings:

Pair this with a delicious cheese plate, we recommend trying it with goat cheese especially. Or try it with grilled asparagus alongside a pasta dish containing fresh veggies.
