  • Niner Sauvignon Blanc

    Niner Wine Estates farms from three separate locations—Bootjack Ranch (on the eastern side of Paso), Heart Hill Vineyard (on the western side of Paso), and Jespersen Vineyard (in Edna Valley to the south). The 2013 Niner Sauvignon blanc came from the Bootjack Ranch on the Eastern side of Paso where it is really dry and warm.
