French Grape Tour Week #5: Sauvignon Blanc

March 23 @ 6:00 PM - 11:00 PM

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Sauvignon Blanc is now the world’s 8th most widely planted grape. It is at least 500 years old and is the child grape of a rare French variety called Savagnin. You can still find Savagnin wines made in the tiny region of Jura in Eastern France close to the border of Switzerland.

The name Sauvignon is from the French word Sauvage meaning “wild”. It takes roots in the Loire Valley of France and is a parent grape of Cabernet Sauvignon (the other is Cabernet Franc).
There are more than 10 countries that specialize in Sauvignon Blanc.

Sauvignon Blanc is a white wine that owes much of its popularity to winemakers in Bordeaux and the Loire Valley.
