2019 Foley Sonoma Sauvignon Blanc, Sonoma County
The 2019 harvest was one of quality and quantity. Sonoma County experienced ideal weather the whole season, allowing our white grapes to ripen at a steady pace and develop full and dynamic flavors. We had a brief break between picking whites and reds with three days of rain that slowed down the sugar levels and gave us time to organize before bringing in the reds. Shortly after those three days, the summer heat returned, prompting a brisk finish to the picking season. Ultimately, 2019 yields came in 15%-20% greater than we have seen in the past eight years and the quality is superb across the board.

After harvest, the majority of the fruit was fermented in stainless steel tanks to capture its light, fresh characteristics and the balance in neutral French oak. The wine was bottled on August 22, 2020.
The vineyards for our Sauvignon Blanc lie in the heart of the Chalk Hill AVA. Just down the road from Foley Sonoma, our family vineyards are planted to rich soils that support the Sauvignon Musque clone used in this wine.
