You Gann Do It

Have you ever been out in the garden and thought to yourself, "I want to drink that"?

Perfect! This 2007 Gann Family Sauvignon Blanc is like drinking plants ... in a good way. Or at least we think it's in a good way. You be the judge.

Its aromas are that of flowering jasmine, lilies and gardenia, and the earlier harvested fruit gives a grassy, herbaceous character to the wine. It's not just like being in a grassy knoll. It's like drinking one!

Of course, there are also fruit flavors, like, y'know, the grapes used to make the wine and the bright citrus flavors, but that's a small detail when you're experiencing the pleasure of drinking plants.

Features

2007 Gann Family Sauvignon Blanc, Russian River Valley 750ml 4-Pack

The 2007 vintage has produced a highly aromatic wine showing extraordinary perfumes of flowering jasmine, lilies and gardenias. The earlier harvested fruit gives a slightly grassy, herbaceous character to the wine while the later picked grapes have provided more fruit forwardness, with flavors ranging from a bright citrus right through to an exotic tropical.

The “Spring Hill Vineyard” block is an eastern facing hillside vineyard planted in 1978. These old and gnarled Sauvignon Blanc vines produce small yields of fruit filled with amazing depth and character. This block consists of well-drained Hugo loam soils and is planted to Sauvignon Blanc clone 1 on AxR-1 rootstock using a quadrilateral cordon trellis system.

Growing Season & Harvest Notes: 2007 was characterized as a moderate season which lagged about two weeks behind average. The cooler temperatures provided for even ripening of fruit throughout spring and summer. The moderate weather allowed for extended hang time as we patiently waited for the full flavors to develop.

Winemaking Notes: The fruit was harvested on three separate occasions over a period of 14 days. This enabled these majestic vines to show off their broad range of character as well as bring out a wonderful natural complexity to the wine. About 10% of the wine is barrel fermented to add further dimensions in texture and to give a slight creaminess to the mouthfeel.

Gann Family Cellars

Owners:
Gretchen and Michael Gann Schmahl
Founded:
2003
Location:
Healdsburg, CA
Gann Family Cellars is the result of a long-held dream of ours.  As a California native, Michael's family has a long history in Northern California that began in 1871 when Isaac W. Gann moved here, from the east, to purchase 154 acres of agricultural property. Six generations later, we have the privilege of continuing this family tradition with our Gann Family Vineyard.
 
Our story begins in 1984, at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, where we met.  While we were dating, we were introduced to the emerging wine country of the Central Coast.  From there, our wine interest grew significantly, especially when we moved to the Bay Area after graduating in 1986.  Here we had the chance to regularly visit the wine country of Napa and Sonoma counties and learn more about wine from Gretchen's brother, who had recently graduated from UC Davis with a degree in Enology. Our entertaining, whether family or friends, centered around wonderful food, wine and conversations about making our own wine "some day".
 
In 1995, while attending graduate business school at Saint Mary's, Michael had the opportunity to study the wine industry.  The project provided an opportunity to analyze the underlying economics, compare different business models, as well as build a comprehensive business plan for our dream...while at the same time, completing a class assignment.  He finished his MBA with a sense that all of the puzzle pieces were starting to come together: a growing passion for wine, a brother-in-law who could help us get the dream rolling, and the tools of how to smartly invest in our dream.
 
Over the next several years, we continued our individual careers, kept our dream on the back-burner and brought two daughters into our lives, Elizabeth and Natalie. It wasn't until late 2001 that we began seriously researching vineyard properties. After patiently evaluating 80 different properties in Napa and Sonoma, we finally found our perfect vineyard in Healdsburg. With the purchase of this estate, it was now time to give up the corporate life and start a new chapter.
 
However, this is really only the beginning -- phase one of many. We now have dreams of building our own winery facility and tasting room, a destination where those who enjoy wine can meet to share stories and sample our dream. We also have dreams of passing stewardship of our beautiful vineyard to future Gann generations, with the hope that they will enjoy this life with the same passion that we do.
