The suggested retail price for these wines is $26 for the Sauvignon Blanc and $49 for both the Pinot Noir and Three Blocks respectively. “We are excited to share our quality, signature wines with a larger audience,” said Signaterra Winemaker, Rodrigo Soto. “These wines are special -- each vineyard is carefully selected to specifically match the varietal of grapes grown on them; they are crafted in small quantities, and what’s inside each bottle reflects the symbolic principles of earth, man and nature.” While Signaterra wines are “green” -- all of the wines in the line are grown using grapes that are grown certified sustainably, organically or biodynamically, the packaging for these wines was produced with sustainability in mind as well. The labels are made from 30% post consumer waste and are printed with inks that are soy-based. Benziger’s commitment to sustainability stretches back more than 20 years, when the family discovered that natural farming on their Sonoma Mountain estate yielded more flavorful, aromatic grapes with more site-specific character. These farming practices also dramatically enhanced the overall health of the property -- illuminating the need for a new direction in Benziger winegrowing. With the 2007 vintage, all Benziger wines were made by one of three natural farming methods: certified sustainable, certified organic or certified Biodynamic. “We are dedicated to making more distinctive wines that genuinely reflect vineyard character, a hallmark of the Signaterra line,” said Benziger founder, Mike Benziger. “But beyond that, we are completely committed to a sustainable farming philosophy. So committed, that we’re prepared to make less wine -- that’s how strongly we feel that all Benziger wines be either certified sustainable, organically grown or Biodynamic.” Signaterra by Benziger is distributed nationally by Kobrand, Inc., New York, NY. ### About Signaterra™ by Benziger: Leaders in Biodynamic®, organic and certified-sustainable farming, Benziger is dedicated to crafting authentic wines that are true to the grape variety, vintage and vineyard.
