Wine Facts

VITICULTURE: This wine is an ideal blend of cooler climate fruit to impart acidity and brightness, alongside warmer climate Sauvignon Blanc to bring in a naturally ripened tropical character. This yields some roundness and structure on the finished wine without the need for added sugar.

VINIFICATION: Traditional winemaking practices were followed by fermentation and aging in stainless steel.

Geyser Peak was named for the tremendous view of Geyser Peak Mountain directly outside the original winery’s window.

FAMILY: Geyser Peak Winery has a long and storied history. Founded in 1880, it became the 29th bonded winery in California. The brand has seen a storied past of over 140 years, founded by a local family, changing hands multiple times including management by corporate interests. Today, Geyser Peak has proudly returned to its roots as a family-owned-and-operated business, sourcing fruit from famed winegrowing regions of California. The essence of California terroir can be tasted throughout the range of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. The motto, “Reach for the Peak,” was coined to refer to seeking the utmost quality in wine. It’s inarguable that it has.

Derek Irwin is the new winemaker for Geyser Peak. He started his wine career in 1994 after graduating from UC Davis and has a deep knowledge and understanding of the California wine industry having consulted for wineries in various California wine regions.
