More about this wine from Mendocino, CA
Blue Quail owner Guinness McFadden followed a rather unconventional path to winemaking. He grew up in New York City, attended Notre Dame and then joined the navy. While on tour in the Mediterranean he developed a deep love of wine. Upon returning home, McFadden decided to pursue his passion and start a winery. Over 40 years later, Blue Quail still produces amazing wines and over has provided grapes to some of the most well-known names in California winemaking.

This is an oak free (yay!) sauvignon blanc! Crisp, clean and to the point. Tastes like taking a bite out of the Chiquita Banana girl’s hat or the fruit cocktails your mother gave you out of the can when you were young. Light and refreshing with minimal acidity that rounds out any fattiness.

This bright wine is best served with the clean taste of seafood and this smoky shrimp patty works perfectly.

Try it with our Chipotle Shrimp with Mango Sauce from Tasting Table recipe.
