Winemaker Mark Beringer gives this crisp white a creamy edge by adding a touch of Sémillon and aging some of it in oak.
What You Need To Know
Spain’s Raventós family has been in the wine business since the 1650s and is famous for inventing cava, that country’s premier sparkling wine. So it was big news when the Raventóses set up an outpost in Napa Valley in 1991. Artesa Vineyards & Winery, their hilltop estate in the windswept Napa subregion of Carneros, originally focused on Champagne-method sparkling wines; today it produces still wines with fruit sourced from across Napa and Sonoma counties. Winemaker Mark Beringer incorporates traditional Bordeaux techniques in making its Sauvignon Blanc (such as oak aging and adding a bit of Sémillon) to craft a comparatively lush version of the variety.
