Winemaker Notes

Montevina's Fumé Blanc exhibits an unmistakable varietal aroma of fresh, bright, citrus fruit and cut melon scents enlivened by the smoky, grassy tones characteristic of the Sauvignon Blanc grape when grown in a cool region. The rich, spicy grapefruit flavors are brisk and zesty, leading to a crisp, spicy aftertaste. This distinctive dry white wine is an excellent choice for vegetarian, seafood, and chicken dishes, as well as herb-flavored pastas and mildly-spiced Asian cuisines.

Some say you can taste the history of a place in a glass of wine. Perhaps that’s why the wines of Montevina are brimming with such intense flavors and bold character. Spanish for “mountain vine,” Montevina brings a different altitude—and attitude—to its winemaking. Established in 1970 in the foothills of California’s rugged Sierra Nevada, historic Montevina was the region’s first post-Prohibition winery, resurrecting Amador County’s legendary wine industry. Since then, we’ve been known for crafting deeply flavored, robust wines that capture the unique character of this remarkable region. Our state-of-the art winery is spectacular, and features a spacious, friendly tasting room and a beautiful vineyard-ringed patio where you can relax with a glass of wine. There’s nothing quite like escaping to Amador wine country, at Montevina.

Originally a source of oenological sustenance for gold-seeking miners of the mid-1800s, the Sierra Foothills was the first region in California to produce wines from European grape varieties. Located between Sacramento and the Nevada border, this area’s immigrant settlers chose to forgo growing the then-ubiquitous Mission grape and instead brought with them superior vines from the Old World to plant alongside mining camps.

Zinfandel has been the most important variety of this region since its inception, taking on a spicy character with brambly fruit and firm structure. Amador and El Dorado counties, benefiting from the presence of volcanic and granite soils, are home to the best examples. Bold, robust Rhône Blends and Barbera are also important regional specialties.

Capable of a vast array of styles, Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp, refreshing variety that equally reflects both terroir and varietal character. Though it can vary depending on where it is grown, a couple of commonalities always exist—namely, zesty acidity and intense aromatics. This variety is of French provenance. Somm Secret—Along with Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc is a proud parent of Cabernet Sauvignon. That green bell pepper aroma that all three varieties share is no coincidence—it comes from a high concentration of pyrazines (herbaceous aromatic compounds) inherent to each member of the family.
