2019 Sauvignon Blanc
Willow Creek AVA, Humboldt County, CA
100% Sauvignon Blanc
Willow Creek AVA was established in 1983 as one of the first in The United States, and it is the most northern wine region in California. The AVA distinction was given to Willow Creek based on its unique Micro Climate, soil structure, marine influence and unique geographic features.
Miles Garrett Wines is a small family run winery producing their own grapes and olives. The team is made up of family, friends. volunteers and a few very well paid employees. Their mission is to make wines that represent the land and the uniqueness of the Willow Creek AVA. All of their vineyards are CCOF certified organic and dry farmed. They cultivate cover crops in the winter and allow their animals into the vineyard at certain times to graze. In the cellar they practice fully natural winemaking with almost zero intervention. They let fermentation take place with naturally occurring yeasts, and never add sulfites or any other additive at any time through the process. This Sauvignon Blanc sees a bit of skin contact to draw out complexity and depth, and then is raised in old French oak barrels.
