A great combination of zippy freshness and lush body in this balanced and refreshing white. Lively citrus notes mingle with white flower and stony undertones. Refreshing and easy to drink, this is a super friendly... A great combination of zippy freshness and lush body in this balanced and refreshing white.

Label

Grapes for Emmolo Sauvignon Blanc are sourced from two family vineyards – Emmolo Rutherford which provides fresh citrus characteristics, and Emmolo Oak Knoll that lends crisp minerality. The grapes are lightly pressed and fermented in stainless steel tanks. The wine is aged both in stainless steel and used French oak barrels, adding depth and complexity while preserving the variety’s character.

Winery

Emmolo

Emmolo is a Rutherford wine estate established by Cheryl Emmolo in 1994. Her family has a long-standing history in the Napa Valley wine industry beginning with her grandfather, Italian immigrant Salvatore Emmolo, who planted grapevines and started a grapevine rootstock nursery in Rutherford in the 1920’s.

Salvatore’s son, Frank Emmolo, ran Emmolo Nursery and built a strong following amongst Napa Valley grape growers - becoming the leading supplier to Napa Valley vintners for five decades. They opened up Palermo Winery in 1934, operating for less than a decade and eventually closing due to the public’s lack of interest in wine immediately after Prohibition. They sustained the land over the years until Cheryl re-established the building as Emmolo Winery.

Today, Cheryl’s daughter, Jenny Wagner, has taken over the reins and the estate is now part of the Wagner Family of Wines. She is proud and honored to continue on the family legacy and tradition of farming vines and making Emmolo wine in the original winery her great-grandfather built in 1934.

The winery focuses on two wines – a Sauvignon Blanc and a Merlot. They get their fruit from the estate’s River Ranch property in Rutherford, an estate property in Oak Knoll and, depending on the vintage, from vineyards in Carneros and Atlas Peak.
