Kicking off in our first segment we’ll welcome a producer from the “old world” from a region that is known for Sauvignon Blanc, that dates back to the 18th century, where the grape is said to have originated and that is the Loire Valley of France.
Joining us, the Export Director of Remy Pannier, a company with its roots firmly planted in the Loire, with a fascinating history, scrumptious story and wines, Julien Cothenet will join us.

Celebrate Sauvignon Blanc Day! Get Sauvignon Blanc savvy with three unique styles from three different continents.
Coming up on today’s show we are going to be celebrating a very special day in the world of wine. Saluting one of our favorite grape varietals, grown in many wine regions around the globe and growing in popularity day by day.
How would you describe me, this grape and the wine that I make? Well, you are zesty, fresh and crisp. I smell like citrus, grapefruit, tropical fruit and sometimes gooseberries and even cats pee! But that’s a good thing!
And you originated in France but as you are planted prolifically in many different regions. You could only be one grape and that is Sauvignon Blanc.
This special day, International Sauvignon Blanc Day, the 7th annual, is celebrated on May 6th, as well as April 24th, as National Sauvignon Blanc Day.
There will be loads of tastings and events going on all honouring this diverse, very expressive, and delicious grape so why not join in!
And we are so on board, 100% ready to celebrate, to educate and introduce you guys to three very distinct Sauvignon Blancs all coming from diverse regions around the world, in fact from 3 different continents, all with their own unique style… France, California and New Zealand.
