A childhood dream, let’s hook up when we are all grown up and start a winery together. That is the story of two brothers (John & Steve Dragonette) and their good buddy Brandon Sparks-Gillis. They teamed up to pursue their live-long dream to make wine. While working at wineries like Sine Qua Non, Torbreck, Fiddlehead Cellars before they gained valuable experiences in order to start this grand venture. Over the past decade the press has (rightfully so) been generous to these three great guys. They source from some of the most sought after vineyards in Santa Barbara, Santa Rita Hills & Santa Ynez.
The Vogelzang Vineyard is situated on a gently sloping bed of well drained, gravelly loam soil with Serpentinite. The vineyard is well established and has been carefully pruned, leafed and deficit-irrigated to focus the plant’s energy on fruit development. We purchase these grapes from several distinct blocks in the vineyard and farm them on a per acre basis, so that we can control all farming practices, including pruning, canopy management, yield control, irrigation and differential harvesting of our blocks.
Jeb Dunnuck 95 Points: “Possibly my favorite of the Sauvignon Blanc releases, the 2018 Sauvignon Blanc Vogelzang Vineyard has a more powerful, broad, concentrated style to go with lots of stone fruits, brioche, honeyed minerality, and sappy herbs. It’s possibly less complex than the Grimm’s Bluff release, but it’s simply beautifully balanced, layered, and textured on the palate.”
Vinous 95 Points: “The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc Vogelzang Vineyard is another compelling wine in this range. Here rich orchard and tropical fruit flavors meld with brighter more citrus and mineral-driven nuances in a Sauvignon Blanc that is incredibly complex and delicious. The Vogelzang is another superb wine from Dragonette.”
