Elizabeth Spencer 2010 Sauvignon Blanc
made from Nora's grapes
It was a rare pleasure indeed to taste the Sauvignon Blanc with the wine grape grower Norma Gibson herself pouring the wine. I look forward to the day when all vineyards get their names on the bottle - and when more tastings include the growers.
Nora's vineyards are just north of the Buddhist temple in Talmage, near Ukiah. She also raises other varietals which are sold to other wineries.
The Elizabeth Spencer Petite Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon come from other Mendo vineyards.
Both Napa and Mendocino county each have 4,000+ acres of wine grapes that are certified organic.
