Summer in a Bottle: Line 39 Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Despite the pandemic, shelter-in-place orders, face masks and gloves, the earth keeps turning and here in the Northern Hemisphere, days are getting longer and warmer. Summer is almost upon us! While we aren’t likely to be taking a vacation this year, we can still enjoy the summer season virtually, and with a good bottle of wine, of course!

Line 39 Wines produces a budget-friendly lineup of wines, all quite approachable and easy drinking. We recently received a sample of their Sauvignon Blanc 2018, and decided to enjoy it at our weekly Social Distancing Happy Hour with the neighbors. 

Line 39 Wines is named for the 39th parallel, that runs through the heart of California wine country. Line 39 Wines sources grapes from the best regions of California, to create versatile, expressive, and sophisticated wines. As they say on their website, “Line 39 is a real place, but it’s also a state of mind. Find yourself along Line 39.”

With travel limited, add some fun to your virtual summer travels with the Random Holiday Generator at Earth Roulette. Generate a destination (many are places you’ve probably never heard of) and then learn about what’s there; the culture, the people, the sights, and of course, the food and wine! Thanks to Calhoun & Company Communications for the suggestion.

Here’s what we thought of Line 39 Sauvignon Blanc 2018, while enjoying some sunshine on the front lawn with the neighbors…all 6 feet apart, naturally!

Pale straw color. Aromas of tree fruit and tropical fruit. Flavors of apricot, peach, mango, pineapple, and citrus. Surprisingly full body, with smooth, round mouthfeel and medium acidity. Delightful finish. Great paired with social distancing happy hour with the neighbors. Summer in a bottle. And at just $12 (SRP) it’s a superb value, too!

Line 39 Wines are widely available at most grocery stores across the U.S. You can also shop online if you are trying to stay out of stores. If you tend to avoid so-called “grocery store” wines, give Line 39 Sauvignon Blanc 2018 a try. You might just find it’s your new weeknight white wine.
