Sauvignon Blanc Environs - 2018

Winemakers and entrepreneurs Kate Norris and Tom Monroe are the power-duo behind one of our favorite wineries in Portland — or anywhere for that matter. Determined to make approachable, low-intervention wines, the pair founded Division Wine Co. in 2010, and have spent the last decade making pitch-perfect wines that are almost too good to be true (like their mind-boggling “Un” bottlings, which out-drink almost anything). Today, Division works with countless organic, biodynamic, and LIVE-certified vineyards across the state, including in the Columbia Gorge and the Applegate Valley. But maybe most exciting of all: Kate and Tom are helping to pioneer a new, more equitable Willamette Valley in which Pinot Noir is not the only game in town.
