Fodor's Review

Solar panels top the modern wooden barn at Quivira, which produces Sauvignon Blanc, Zinfandel, Grenache, Syrah, and other wines using organic and biodynamic agricultural practices. The emphasis is on "growing wine"—farming grapes so meticulously that little manipulation is required in the winery. That said, winemaker Hugh Chappelle's mastery of technique is in evidence in wines such as the flagship Fig Tree Sauvignon Blanc, whose zesty yet refined characteristics derive from the combination of stainless steel and oak and acacia barrels used during fermentation. Guided tours (by appointment only) cover the farming and wine-making philosophies and offer a glimpse of the property's garden and animals. In a separate salon, you can taste ($20) the Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays of La Follette Wines, which shares ownership with Quivira. Sourced from prime vineyards, they're worth investigating.
