OVERVIEW

California winemaker Courtney Benham, based in Sonoma’s Russian River Valley, maintains established long-standing relationships with winegrowers as far south as Santa Barbara to the northern reaches of Mendocino. So for his signature Angeline wines, he’s able to select outstanding representations of each varietal and each appellation.

The Russian River Valley extends just south of the town of Healdsburg to the San Pablo Bay in the west. It has the coolest climate of all the regions in Sonoma because of the fog traveling up the Russian River from the ocean. The climate makes the Russian River Valley prime Chardonnay and Pinot Noir country. Both grape varieties thrive here with a lush, rich intensity of fruit flavors rarely found in other places. The cooler climate creates the ideal conditions to produce Chardonnay and Pinot Noir with more intense forward fruit, lovely crispness and acidity with great balance and length. This Russian River Valley appellation is truly one of the shining stars of Sonoma.


Sauvignon Blanc is an international white grape variety that originates in France. It’s long been used to make world-class wines from Bordeaux and the Loire Valley. Yet in recent decades, Sauvignon Blanc has become an everyday favorite thanks to the New World winemakers of New Zealand.

With its distinctive, vivid aromas and zesty acidity, Sauvignon Blanc is easy to peg in a blind tasting of dry white wines. The wine’s green, herbaceous and fruity scents are sometimes accented with musky aromas, yet its flavors are consistently fresh and bright.
