Word of the Week: Sauvignon blanc

Sauvignon blanc is defined as a dry white wine made from the grape originally grown in Bordeaux and the Loire valley of France. Today, Sauvignon blanc is a common grape grown in the wine region of California. The vine was first brought by Charles Wetmore in the early 19th century, and the popularity of the grape quickly spread and the grape is now grown throughout California.

Unlike most grapes that are named after the region where they are grown, the word Sauvignon blanc comes from the French word sauvage, vigne, and blanc, or wild, vine, and white in English. 

When planning your next dinner party, consider pairing the Sauvignon blanc wine with the American cheese Goat Gouda and freshly cut apples. Cheers!
