Estate Grown Sauvignon Blanc is rare and even rarer when you put Thomas Rivers Brown in the mix. This wine is brilliant, greenish-gold, with fresh cut aromas of green apple, pear and quince. It is juicy, crisp and wonderfully fresh but has mineral backbone that pierces through the ripe mouthfeel. It’s actually hard to put to the glass down!

About the wine

In a dozen years, the heirs to Round Pond Ryan and Miles MacDonald have turned the Round Pond estate into a Napa Valley destination! Surrounded by names like Beckstoffer, Caymus, and Honig geography put this family in the right place, but it’s their devotion to Cabernet and Sauvignon Blanc that’s pushing them above their peers--and pushing this wine into our hot little hands!

A Sauvignon Blanc with multiple layers of fruit starting with zesty citrus, moving to stone fruits, progressing to melons, and finishing with a hint of exotic tropical fruits. Each of these aromatic profiles represents the different ripeness levels at which the clusters were picked.

As an appellation, Rutherford is home to some of Napa’s most famed and historic vineyards. The soil is well-drained and is known to contribute a singularly sweet, “dusty” taste to Cabernet grown here. The famed “Rutherford Dust” is Napa’s premier marker of terroir and recognized the world over and in 2014--a 96-point vintage of “charming” and “cellar-worthy” wines according to Wine Spectator--these vines over delivered!

"100% varietal harvested at three different times to provide complexity and depth. An excellent wine!" - Mark G.

"A good option for your borderline Sav Blanc friends. Nice summer wine" - Niven

"A well balanced wine that has a crisp mouth watering acidity that finishes well with lingering fruit flavors. Try it. Enjoy!" - Ed B.

“Forget Napa Chardonnay, and fall in love with Round Pond’s expression of Napa’s other white—the super tropical, guava-scented 2017 Sauvignon Blanc. Lemon curd, lime pith, and a medley of fresh tropical fruit collided in this high-acid, light-bodied Sauvignon Blanc. Sunshine in a bottle.”

Whoa! Barolo at this price point is almost impossible to find. Vite Colte is surrounded by the who’s who in Piedmont. Giacosa ($200), Aldo Conterno ($175), and Vietti ($100). Our importer snapped up all they could, this is a win-win!

Thank you for trusting Vivino for your wine orders! In order to ensure that your wine is protected from the elements during transport, Vivino has developed a comprehensive program for temperature controlled shipping:

  • All shipments to Non-West Coast states (CA, OR, WA, ID, MT, WY, NV, AZ, CO, NM) will be sent via temperature controlled truck to the closest regional hub. These facilities, referred to as "gateways", are temperature controlled and located strategically throughout the country.
  • Once a shipment arrives at the gateway*, it will be transferred to UPS or Fedex for the final part of its journey

* Note that ice packs (if ordered) will be added to your package at this time.


All orders placed before 1pm EST on Wednesday will be shipped out on Friday of the same week. All orders placed after this time will be stored in a temperature controlled warehouse and shipped out the following Friday.

Delivery times, therefore, may take 8-14 days from order date, accounting for fulfillment, 4-5 days shipment to the regional hub, and 1-2 days for local delivery.

If you would like a more expeditious delivery option, please select 2-Day or Overnight Shipping.


Tracking information will not be available for your shipment until it reaches the regional hub, due to the fact that the shipment is sent via common (temperature controlled) carrier and there is no individual tracking number for the package.

You will however receive a confirmation email indicating that your shipment has left the West Coast warehouse and is en route to your closest regional hub. Your order will say "UPS Label Created", but this label will not be scanned until it reaches the regional hub.

Once the shipment reaches the regional hub, you will be able to track your package (likely 4-5 days after shipping date). At this point, the package is en route to your home/office.
