Our 2016 Russian River Valley Sauvignon Blanc has been handcrafted by winemaker Alison Green-Doran as a tribute to the fearless Suffragette fighters. Two dollars ($2) from every bottle sold will go to support the League of Women Voters.
With its big luscious nose with casaba melon, nectarine, vanilla, and lychee the wine is dry and satin at the palate with a finish of silky texture and lingering Babcock peach flavors.
Alison Green-Doran is the ideal winemaker for our 19th Amendment Sauvignon Blanc. Alison blazed the trail as one of the first female winemakers in California. Shattering glass ceilings at every stop, Alison is a pioneer in the wine industry, and we are pround to showcase this 100 case limited production.
Alison is a veteran winemaker with more than 30 years of experience. Raised in Palos Verdes, California, with plenty of horses and surfing, Alison was drawn into winemaking in 1973. Her father, Russell Green, was an oil man and a long-time Alexander Valley vineyard owner. He bought Simi Winery in 1969 and brought in Andre Tchellistcheff as a consultant soon thereafter.
Alison worked as a harvest intern beside Andre for six months at Simi in 1973, and that is where she found both her life's work as well as her mentor. Andre found her a five-month "cellar rat" position in Alsace for the crush of 1975, and then an enologist position with a start-up winery in Paso Robles.
