Combing the distinct characteristics of the vineyard (Earth), the intricacies of the
vintage (Nature), and the art of winemaking (Man), Signaterra by Benziger is now
available nationally in 27 markets including California, New York, Florida, Texas and
North Carolina. 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.
