Talking About New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc: Featuring Saint Clair Family Estate SRP: $20, Region: Marlborough http://saintclair.co.nz/

We'll be talking with winemaker Hamish Clark live from New Zealand's award-winning Saint Clair Family Estate.  Saint Clair is owned by Neal and Judy Ibbotson, viticulture pioneers in Marlborough since 1978. Originally, they supplied grapes to regional wineries; but, a desire to extend the quality achieved in the vineyard all the way through to the finished wine, led to the establishment of Saint Clair Family Estate in 1994. 

We'll also be chatting with Katie Nelson from O Wines, established in 2006 in Woodinville, Washington by Stacy Lill and Kathy Johanson with a mission to fund college scholarships for low income, capable young women. Each purchase helps send young women to college through the O Wines Opportunity for Success Scholarship program.   Since the introduction of the wines to the Pacific Northwest in 2008, more than $300,000 has been raised to support 52 college scholarships.
