When Randall and Bettina started discussing this idea, Randall was reminded of an old vine vineyard planted entirely to white grapes he had recently noticed in Russian River.  It turned out to be a Sauvignon Blanc vineyard planted in 1976 and quite possibly the oldest Sauvignon Blanc grapes in Sonoma County. Intrigued, we bought a very small amount of grapes from Hopkins River Ranch in 2014 and were so impressed by the results, we bought enough grapes in 2015 to make 180 cases of wine.

The vines produce very small berry, which we whole cluster press to preserve maximum freshness and then ferment slowly at a low temperature in small stainless steel tanks. The long cool fermentation preserves the freshness but also gives the wine an unexpected richness.  

Who knew coming up with an original name for a wine could be so difficult? The label is our homage to the extensive brainstorming it took to develop a name that matched the quality in the bottle.

"Beauty is Only Skin Deep". Not necessarily when it comes to wine. The Blanc Slate Sauvignon Blanc, an "ingenue" is Laurel Glen's white wine offerings, is marvelous to the eyes and the palette. Yes, "they're gonna drink it , just because these guys" made it", but the wine is splendid through and through and just a flirty captivating finish. Lemon and roses? Pour this on light occassions for fame, favor and fortune.
