2021 "Cohort 1"

Sauvignon Blanc, 2021

Varietal: 100% Sauvignon Blanc

Appellation: Russian River Valley, Sonoma, CA 

Progressive Scale Weight: 2W

Pairings: Wonderful on its own as an aperitif (aka easy-sipping wine you drink with your friends before dinner), or paired with salads, sushi, and fresh cheeses like a soft goat cheese.

We know you’re eager to taste, but if you race right past the nose of this wine you’ll be missing something special. So, pour a little in your glass, give it a swirl or two, and then stick your nose right in there for a few deep breaths. We smell the tropics, and no matter the weather, our shoulders relax and we can’t help but smile! On the palate, this wine has flavor and acid that just won’t quit. But you’ll notice it doesn’t have much body. On our Progressive Scale, this wine is a 2W, meaning it’s more about the lean and racy acid than it is about the fruit.

Some Quick Info About

PWC's Core Tenents

PWC is not made from bulk juice.

No leftover juice or "shiner bottles here - you deserve to know where your wine comes from! We've been working with this wine since it was grapes on a vine! We're choosing to work with growers like Juan Gamino, a first generation Mexican-America grower in the Russian River Valley of Sonoma. Over time, we expect our entire grape portfolio to be as intentional as our wine.

PWC is a new way to think about wine.

Learning about wine is intimidating. To make it easier, we developed the Progressive Scale - a way of categorizing wine by its body in stead of varietal or region. Our first vintage will feature lighter bodied wines, and the 2022 and 2023 vintage releases will build to more medium and full bodied styles.

PWC pays it forward.

$1 of every bottle or piece of merchandise sold goes to support learning opportunities for the Urban Grape Wine Studies Award for Students of Color participants. When you support PWC, you're not just buying wine to enjoy, you're also supporting equity and inclusion in the wine industry. Learn more about our program! Learn about our Program!

PWC is a vehicle for industry learning.

For ten weeks each year, the current cohort of Urban Grape Wine Studies Award for Students of Color interns will work a full harvest season in Sonoma to learn the ins and outs of winemaking. They will assist our winemaking team in all aspects of making PWC. The sales from their wine will allow the next season's interns to have the same experience. Each vintage is named after the cohort that helped to make it. And this is how we change the wine world - one vintage at a time!

At PWC, everyone is a wine drinker.

Progressive Wine Company is for EVERYONE. Let's face it, the wine world doesn't need another brand. What it needs is a new way to think about wine.This is the only way we'll encourage future generations to stay connected with the industry. PWC is here to build a bigger table - and set a wine glass at each place setting.
