The Many & Ranging Styles of Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc
Napa Valley can do A LOT with 30 miles. Despite being a small region, Napa Valley is home to dozens of varieties, but a wide range of styles within a single grape. There may be no greater example of this than Sauvignon Blanc, which can range from steely and mineral-driven to unctuous and waxy. With 50% of the world's soil types, a host of microclimates, and the freedom to utilize winemaking techniques ranging from proprietary, to borrowed from the global wine arena, vintners are afforded the opportunity to experiment and push the boundaries of what Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc is capable of.
