Do you LOVE Sauvignon Blanc? Do you want to celebrate this gorgeous wine varietal with the rest of the world, on
We've got a great guide on how to make the most of International Sauvignon Blanc Day, and this year, virtual get-togethers and tastings will be at the heart of the Sauvignon celebrations.
Whether you're a full-on wine geek, or you're more of a casual wine lover, there are tonnes of ways you can enjoy Sauv Blanc Day this year - and you can also grab a case of our award-winning Sauv to help you stock up for the big day (NZ shipping only).
Here are some great ways you can sip and celebrate on May 1st:
Host a virtual Sauvignon Blanc tasting
Get your #winegang together on Zoom, Facetime, or HouseParty, ask everyone to open a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc, and then taste each wine and discuss the differences, similarities, and tastes of each one. You could even go one step further and use the tasting to host a pub quiz, focusing on Sauvignon Blanc topics!
Try a flight of Sauv at home
This is a great way to experience a few different wines. Many bars and restaurants are able to sell wines from their wine lists, so do a little bit of research and find a place close to home that you can support, and order a few bottles of Sauv from different regions, vintages, and producers. New Zealand supermarkets also have a fantastic range of wines at great prices, so why not grab a bottle or two in your next supermarket shop. There are some fascinating differences between Sauvs, so why not use Sauv Blanc Day as an excuse to explore them and support local businesses in the process.
Do a vertical tasting of the same wine
If you're a bit of a wine buff, take your Sauv Day experience to the next level, by buying a few vintages of the same Sauv (try an oaked Sauvignon Blanc, which ages really nicely), and discussing with other adults in your bubble how the same wine has developed and changed over time. Do you prefer an older vintage Sauv, or something fresher? Our Sauvignon Blanc Oke is a great wine to try this fun challenge with - grab a case here.
Pack up a backyard picnic and a bottle of Sauv
This is a lovely way to get out into the fresh air, and enjoy a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc in comfort and safety in your own backyard. We're dreaming of a picnic hamper jam-packed with fresh local goodies like local cheeses, smoked salmon, cured meats and some fresh fruit for a gorgeous colourful platter. The back garden, courtyard or patio, or even the lounge floor all work perfectly as a picnic spot!
Get social with your Sauv!
If virtual wine tastings and vertical vintages aren't your
