Our Sauvignon Blanc is a perfect wine to pair with light or spicy foods found in Pacific Rim cuisine, a favorite with the Thai cuisine we find at Zen Yai restaurant located near the winery on State Street.
This wine is also a great match for many seafood preparations and salads.
Good, strong citrus fruit, wildflower and honey flavors in this wine, and powerful acidity too, like a squirt of lime juice. Some barrel influence shows up in creamy vanilla. Would be nice now as a cocktail sipper.
In 1962, at the age of thirty-two, Pierre Lafond founded the first post-prohibition commercial winery in Santa Barbara County. Two years later, he located a winery facility on Anacapa Street, just two blocks from the Pacific Ocean. Santa Barbara Winery has become an extremely visible and successful wine concern, winning many medals for an array of wines. Lafond is now in the midst of a significant expansion in order to meet the desires of the consuming public.
