Announcing the release of our very limited production Spottswoode Estate Sauvignon Blanc!
In celebration of Mary Weber Novak, Spottswoode’s founder, the Novak
family has produced a lovely and complex expression of this varietal made exclusively from the 1.07-acre Mary’s Block which borders Spring Creek in the southeastern corner of our family vineyard. A portion of the proceeds of this wine is donated to The Land Trust of Napa County, a land conservation organization that Mary supported. More
Robert Parker Vertical Tasting Of Spottswoode, “A First-Growth Estate,” August 2016
Robert Parker published his tasting notes resulting from our August 2016 vertical tasting, calling Spottswoode “a monopole vineyard” and “truly a Napa first-growth estate.” Beth Novak Milliken and Aron Weinkauf were honored to have spent this time with Mr. Parker, who stated, “Certainly one of the privileges in my profession is to have a winery present their entire lifetime of work. This was one of the more fascinating and enjoyable tastings to which I have had the honor of being invited.” Click here to read all of his tasting notes from the first Spottswoode vintage (1982) through our current release (2014).
