Cakebread's first white varietal, which was planted in vineyards in Rutherford adjacent to the winery. Their Sauvignon Blanc still thrives today from the very same vineyards. Aromatics open with tropical notes and floral. Bright citrus flavors are present on the palate with guava and grapefruit. Framed in vibrant acidity and driving minerality, this is the perfect shellfish companion!
Neither a cake, nor a bread. The winery got its start when Jack Cakebread took an unassuming trip to wine country to photograph the area for a book. Within a few days, Cakebread Winery was already taking shape. It’s been a wild ride over the last forty years for the valley pioneers. Visitors to the winery with an interest in wine as a part of healthy living are on the upswing. While times are ‘a changing,’ the winery’s premise remains unshakable; to produce memorable, food friendly wines that speak of their distinctive terroir. Visitors to the Rutherford estate experience the wine, and if they are lucky, a glimpse of Dolores Cakebread’s famed gardens. This is where the good life was imagined, and here it’s eagerly shared.
