Sauvignon Blanc 101: origin and characteristics
Sauvignon Blanc originated in the Loire Valley of France. The grape is thought to be a descendant of Cabernet Sauvignon and Savagnin. Sauvignon Blanc is now grown all over the world, in both cool and warm climate regions. The grape thrives in well-drained soils and needs plenty of sunlight to reach full ripeness.
Sauvignon Blanc wines are typically high in acidity, with bright, zesty flavors of citrus, green apple, and gooseberry.

Sauvignon Blanc is a versatile wine that can be enjoyed on its own or paired with a variety of dishes, from fresh seafood to grilled chicken.
