Learn About Pomelo

The name Pomelo comes from the giant citrus fruit native to Malaysia and thought to be ancestor to the grapefruit. Our Pomelo Sauvignon Blanc reminds us of the coral-pink tangy juice from a pomelo. Pomelo is a new and unique Sauvignon Blanc made with l00% Sauvignon Blance grapes solely from Lake County, California.
