Just What are These 100 Wines from 13 Countries? Find Out in Our “Getting to Know Our Wines” Series, Starting TODAY!

 Visit Us on the Web - Click Here In the months to come, we will be running a series called “Getting to Know Our Wines.”  As many of you already know, we are making wine in Denver, and with more than 100 wines from 13 countries, we are sure you have asked yourself, at least once, “what are all these wines.”  We will help guide you through our various wines, and hopefully along the way you will gain a bit of wine knowledge not previously in your wine library or vocabulary.  Our “Getting to Know Our Wines” series will run every Tuesday, and as a part of the series each featured wine will be available at our winery in Greenwood Village, on its featured day ONLY, for a 10% discount.  So, watch for each new featured wine on Tuesdays, and stop in to try something new or to sample an old favorite!   Today’s Featured Wine is: Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc The Marlborough region of New Zealand is one of the most important wine growing regions in that part of the world.  Settlers began cultivating grapes in that area, which is located on the north end of the South Island, in the 1870s.  However, it would be another 100-years before any of the fruit really blossomed into the type production that could sustain the area.  In 1973, a local wine company planted the Sauvignon Blanc grape, and the rest is history!  Although there were doubts about the likelihood of success for that grape in that climate, the combination of weather conditions in the region have proven to be divine for the Sauvignon Blanc grape.  The Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc wines have received worldwide recognition since the late 1990s.  As a result, nearly 50% of the vineyards in the Marlborough region are now cultivated with Sauvignon Blanc grapes.  Stop in to try this renowned wine, and we think you might taste flavors of pink grapefruit, lime-leaf, tropical fruits, gooseberries and various herbs.  The wine has a crisp and dry finish which is perfect for these balmy spring days.  This wine goes beautifully with seafood, spicy foods, chicken and green vegetables.
