Sauvignon is one of the world's most famous and best-loved grape varieties. Native to the Loire region of France, this white wine has captured the hearts of wine lovers with its distinctive aromas and vibrant freshness.

Typical Sauvignon Blanc aromas include blackcurrant, grapefruit, lemon, green apple, and sometimes hints of boxwood or cut grass. This aromatic complexity makes it a highly prized wine, especially in summer for its freshness.

Although the Loire is its historic birthplace, Sauvignon Blanc is now grown in many wine-growing regions around the world. In France, the most famous appellations for this grape variety are Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé, located in the Loire Valley. 

Sauvignon Blanc has also found a second home in New Zealand, particularly in the Marlborough region. Here, the cool, maritime climate produces highly aromatic wines, with notes of tropical fruit and marked acidity. Other notable regions include California, Chile and South Africa, each adding its own touch to the wine's profile.

This grape variety is a versatile wine that goes well with a variety of dishes. Thanks to its refreshing acidity, it goes perfectly with seafood and fish, such as grilled salmon or oysters. Salads, especially those made with fresh goat's cheese, also find an excellent companion in this wine.

Asian dishes, with their spicy flavours and freshness, are also enhanced by a glass of Sauvignon Blanc. Think sushi, spring rolls or Thai dishes. For cheese lovers, Sauvignon Blanc is the ideal choice for goats' cheeses and fresh cheeses, where it balances acidity and texture.
