Coquerel Family Wine Estates is located just beyond the town of Calistoga at the north end of the Napa Valley. The heart and soul of our winery is our estate vineyard, a gorgeous, oak-studded property that sits in the afternoon shadows of the Mayacamas Mountains. Since 2005, we have done extensive enhancement and replanting of the site to ensure world-class fruit from vintage to vintage. The combination of warm temperatures and deep, clay soils makes this ideal terroir for Sauvignon Blanc, our flagship variety.
The fruit for our 2019 Le Petit Sauvignon Blanc came from our estate Walnut Wash Vineyard in
Calistoga. Once in the winery, the clusters were de-stemmed and gently pressed to avoid any
bitterness. The juice was fermented in stainless steel barrels and aged sur lie with frequent stirringto increase body and texture. Bottling took place at the end of February 2020.
