As soon as you walk into Grassini's wine tasting room or vineyard you immediately feel at home. The cozy rustic touches throughout their property remind you to slow down and enjoy the moment (and the wine!). If you have the pleasure of meeting the founder, Larry Grassini, his daughter (and CEO), Katie Grassini, or any other member of their staff, you will receive nothing but the best hospitality and some of the best Bordeaux style wine in Santa Barbara!
The Happy Canyon AVA is the warmest microclimate in the Santa Ynez Valley. Dense early morning fog lifts to long afternoons full of sunshine. This Sauvignon Blanc exemplifies the varietal characteristics that are typical of both warm and cool climates to which these grapes are exposed.
Scents of honeydew pith, key lime zest, grapefruit and white spring flowers give way to ripe citrus and slate flavors balanced with bright acidity on the palate, as well as hints of mandarin, white peach and apricots.
