Region: Marlborough, New Zealand

grapes: sauvignon blanc

The matriarch of our family holds court at our Thanksgiving gatherings like a foul-mouthed queen with an insatiable thirst for gossip, dirty jokes, and Sauvignon Blanc. At her age she throws caution to the wind in the self-assured knowledge that no one will call her out. Everyone adores her for it. Like a modern day Alice Roosevelt Longworth, grandma announces to everyone within earshot, ”If you have nothing nice to say about anyone, come sit by me.” At the dinner table, she gobbles up all the whispered gossip offered to her while she luxuriates in the bright acidity and citrusy notes of Spy Valley Sauvignon Blanc. Maybe it’s the heady bouquet of this quintessentially aromatic specimen from New Zealand (or the booze) that loosens grandma’s lips. Needless to say, Grandma regales us with scandalous tales, leaving everyone breathless from a curious combination of shock and laughter. In an attempt to impress grandma, my niece’s boyfriend pours grandma another glass and proceeds to inform her that the winery takes its name from a nearby communications monitoring station used during the World Wars. With a lusty wink Grandma pats him on the head and shoos him away.
