|Wine maker notes
|Bright citrus and lush tropical fruit aromas. Flavors of white peach and honeydew. What’s not to love about this versatile Sauvignon Blanc, with its hint of Semillon for floral notes and its touch of oak for that smoky, intriguing “fume” personality. From poolside aperitifs to your best friend’s wedding, from barbecued oysters on the beach to the BYOB Thai place around the corner, this go-to wine from California’s North Coast rises to every single occasion. Don’t leave home—or stay home—without it.
|Back in 1985, around a friendly game of Liar’s Dice, Tim Murphy, Dale Goode and Dave Ready decided to make their love of fine wines official. They began creating Fume Blanc and Chardonnay from Murphy Ranch and Murphy-Goode Vineyard in Sonoma County. Fast forward 20 vintages and today Murphy-Goode, has added more wines to the line-up, including world-class Bordeaux varieties from Alexander Valley. Today, David Ready, Jr., is the winemaker, and the winery remains family owned. Wines, family, friends, fun. It’s been a Goode ride.
