Our Wine Of The Week is 2021 Lost Hog Winery Sauvignon Blanc, a product of Lake County vineyards. Lake County is adjacent to Napa County on Napa’s north side and checks all the boxes for producing high quality Sauvignon Blanc and other warm-weather loving grape varietals. Check the label on many Napa Valley-produced bottles of SauvBlanc and you’ll discover the grapes were sourced from Lake County.

Lost Hog’s SauvBlanc is somewhat typical of better wines of its type and origin. It’s a light sipper – lots of sweet fruits like pineapple and lemongrass. But not too sweet and very mellow on the palate. It’s a warm weather patio wine best served well-chilled and as often occurs at Wine Adventure Base Camp – in great quantities. Keep the bottle in an ice bucket and pour galore. Pair with chilled salads, fish, and other summer nibbles. You’ll find this wine affordable, available in retail between $10 and $20, I bought mine at Costco for a price on the low side.

Lost Hog Winery is a small, family-owned winery that offers SauvBlanc, Zinfadel, Cabernet Sauvignon and Rosé in their current releases.
