here (link) before my "go to" paradigm for Rodney Strong wines when dining out. They're consistently good quality, typically not over priced, and pair well with many a restaurant meal. Well Dr Desert Flower Does enjoy her white wines, so we picked up a bottle of Rodney Strong Estate Vineyards Charlotte's Home Sauvignon Blanc, Northern Sonoma County 2012. It did not disappoint.
"Sustainably Farmed" is on the back label. I hope it is. I wonder however, what "sustainably farmed" actually means? After all, it is California. They have high labor costs, and high refuse disposal costs, and high taxes. If they are NOT sustainably farming, they won't be in business very long. Rick Sayre (Winemaker) makes good wines, year after year. I hope they stay in business and don't get bought up by some other nameless-faceless-corporatist wine conglomerate. "Family Owned, Heraldsburg California" - please let it stay that way.
