Voss Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc is a single vineyard offering from the Yountville Appellation of California. Planted in 1978, the Morgaen Lee Vineyard has been farmed organically since 1986, minimal intervention ensures the purity of place is prominent in our wine. The Voss style ensures that it is one of the earliest picked vineyards in the region, making our wine one of the first releases from the new vintage each year.
Voss Vineyards was conceived and founded by Australian Robert Hill Smith, the fifth-generation proprietor of Yalumba Winery in Barossa Valley, and Nautilus Estate in Marlborough, New Zealand. With over 160 years of Australian winemaking heritage and experience behind him, Hill Smith approaches wines in Australia, New Zealand and California with a focus on adventure, innovation and a strong respect for matching variety with terroir.
Robert was inspired by the main character from the novel ‘Voss’ written by Patrick White, a Nobel Prize-winning Australian novelist. The book starts in Sydney in 1845 and is based on the story of a German explorer named Voss who is preparing to cross the Australian continent. The novel is about geographical discovery, the challenges that faced explorers in that era, and a love affair set in colonial Winemaker times.
