Take a taste of their organic wildflower honey, extra virgin olive oil, or wine and feel confident that you are protecting wildlife that would be endangered if their land was developed. You’re also supporting local farms, small business, and lower carbon emissions. Can you tell yet this place has the right ideas?
But, back to the wine, I guess I don’t have to tell you that they believe proper treatment of the vines rewards you with less work in the cellar. Not that the wine makes itself. But they take a minimalistic approach to say the least. They produce mostly Bordeaux varietals without the high Napa Valley prices. Due to the climate in their unique location at the north end of the Russian River, they are also able to produce Chardonnay and sparkling wine. If you are a Petit Verdot follower, and we know you’re out there, Terra Savia produces one on its own. Usually part of Bordeaux blends, this wine has soft supple tannins with elegant fruit flavor, brilliant deep purple color, and a long finish.
