Savagnin is a grape that is native to the Jura region in eastern France. It is known to produce dry white wines, full of mineral-driven aromatics and loads of bright acidity. In 2017, Morgan was asked to “care for” 200 baby Savagnin vines coming straight from the Foundation of Plant Sciences at UC Davis - the first of this grape variety in the States! She not only cared for them but grew them up in small pots until we could eventually harvest the budwood and graft the variety into the vineyard. After two years of growth, we grafted the variety into the vineyard in the spring of 2019 and made our first Savagnin wine in 2021. We find this grape to be reminiscent of the Chardonnay on the property, but with more minerality and a very long finish. We hope you enjoy our inaugural release of Savagnin!
