Saturday, April 14th from 2-5pm – I’m hoping it will be sunny and warm for our free Sauvignon Blanc tasting. Whatever the case, if you’re a fan of crisp, dry, and refreshing Sauvignon Blancs, don’t miss this tasting.
Sauvignon Blanc can be a divisive grape. Some people think that all Sauvignon Blanc tastes like the kind that comes from New Zealand. Wrong! Some say it’s sweet and fruity. Wrong again!! Join us as we dispel myths and open your minds to the wonders of this noble grape. We’ll pour you a trio of fully dry, but stylistically different Sauvignon Blancs from various parts of the world. Guess what? None of them taste the same! Stop by, taste, learn, and save every Saturday at Table Wine.
All of the featured tasting wines are being offered at 20% off by the bottle on tasting day! To take advantage of the savings, all sales must be tendered by the end of business on Saturday, April 14th.

1. 2016 Chateau Haut-La Péreyre Entre-Deux-Mers “Haut Benauge” (Bordeaux, France) – Maybe you didn’t know it, but Sauvignon Blanc is the most planted white grape in Bordeaux. And that’s the key grape in this white, which also contains small amounts of Sauvignon Gris and Semillon. Olivier Cailleux is the 6th generation of his family to manage this fine estate, and his white is crisp, crunchy, and minerally.
Special Tasting Price: $13.59/bottle
2. 2016 Otto’s Constant Dream Sauvignon Blanc (Marlborough, New Zealand) – The OCD Sauvignon Blanc is our Wine of the Week, and it’s a fabulous expression from the north part of the south island of New Zealand. Loud, boisterous, and not at all shy, this is everything New Zealand Sauvie should be and more. Read more about this one HERE.
Special Tasting Price: $13.59/bottle — buy a solid 6-pack, and it’s just $12.99/bottle!
3. 2016 Domaine Daulny Sancerre (Loire Valley, France) – Etienne Daulny makes one of my favorite Sancerres, and his 2016 is no exception. 100% Sauvignon Blanc from old vines, planted in the regions rocky/mineral-rich soils, it’s a beautiful white wine. More subdued than the first two wines, it shows an element of restraint and sophistication. I’m not saying it’s better or worse than the other two — that’s for you to decide.
Special Tasting Price: $19.99/bottle
