Chasing Lions

I had the pleasure and honor of growing up in a multi-generational farming family.

In 1974 at the age of five, I began to follow my Grandfather every day on the family farm as he tended to his ranch. Over the years he taught me a lot about farming – but more importantly about life. Then one day in my late teens, he told me it was time to get off the ranch and “go chase lions.”

I never asked him what he meant by that, because something inside me already knew.

It’s been over 20 years now since he passed and I have been chasing lions ever since.

Sauvignon Blanc

Vintage: 2021


On the nose, this Sauvignon Blanc shows ripe apricot, quince and passionfruit with a bit of lemon zest and kaffir lime notes. While it has plenty of weightiness and depth of flavor, acid cuts through with plenty of citrus and bright, briney textures.

Enjoy it on its own or alongside seafood, green salads, grilled chicken, and even chocolate cake.
