    Winemaker Notes

    The 2013 Alta Winery Sauvignon Blanc opens with a floral nose, which has hints of orange blossoms, jasmine, honeysuckle, and stone fruits. The bouquet of white peaches gives way to citrius and gooseberry, quintessential Sauvignon Blanc aromas. In the mouth, there is fresh acidity which complements the ripe honeydew melon flavors, all with a steely, flinty, mineral finish. There is good length, lingering honey and thirst quenching acidity.

    Alta means "height" in Spanish and perfectly describes the mountainside site of the Alta home vineyard in the Atlas Peak district of Napa Valley, as well as owners’ Fred and Nina Oliai‘s aspirations to craft only the best possible, limited release wines from the region.

    One of the world's most highly regarded regions for wine production as well as tourism, the Napa Valley was responsible for bringing worldwide recognition to California winemaking. In the 1960s, a few key wine families settled the area and hedged their bets on the valley's world-class winemaking potential—and they were right.

    The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980s, when producers scooped up vineyard lands and planted vines throughout the county. A number of wineries emerged, and today Napa is home to hundreds of producers ranging from boutique to corporate. Cabernet Sauvignon is definitely the grape of choice here, with many winemakers also focusing on Bordeaux blends. Napa whites are usually Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

    Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that claim specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil. Farthest south and coolest from the influence of the San Pablo Bay is Carneros, followed by Coombsville to its northeast and then Yountville, Oakville and Rutherford. Above those are the warm St. Helena and the valley's newest and hottest AVA, Calistoga. These areas follow the valley floor and are known generally for creating rich, dense, complex and smooth reds with good aging potential. The mountain sub appellations, nestled on the slopes overlooking the valley AVAs, include Stags Leap District, Atlas Peak, Chiles Valley (farther east), Howell Mountain, Mt. Veeder, Spring Mountain District and Diamond Mountain District. Wines from the mountain regions are often more structured and firm, benefiting from a lot of time in the bottle to evolve and soften.
