Shared Notes winery ranks with the finest producers of distinctive Sauvignon Blanc around.—Connoisseurs’ Guide to California Wine
Shared Notes is the winemaking joint-venture between wife and husband, Bibiana González Rave and Jeff Pisoni.
Both had early desires of making wine, and spent most of their lives doing so. The year 2012, however, marked the first vintage that they produced together. Previously, during the grape harvest, Bibiana and Jeff were like the proverbial ships passing in the night. Early grape picks and late nights at the winery left them rarely crossing paths.
Now, Bibiana and Jeff do cross paths—to discuss ideas and taste samples. You can sometimes catch them in front of a grapevine, the press, a fermenting tank, or a barrel...most likely with a glass in hand.
These are both going to be very long-lived whites.—Jeb Dunnuck

Les leçons des maîtres
Lessons of the masters
- Style: A blend inspired by the cellar masters of Bordeaux and their dedication to Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon.
- Variety: 76% Sauvignon Blanc / 24% Semillon
- AVA: Russian River Valley - Sonoma County
Classically Bordeaux to its core, the 2019 Shared Notes Les leçons des maîtres harmonizes the finest aspects of both the Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon varietals. Crushed white peach, Bosc pear, and honeysuckle fill the glass as this youthful, shimmering light green wine starts to breathe with each swirl. Flavors of stone fruits, ripe melon, and lemon zest combine with mineral driven notes of crushed rock and sea air to form a precise, yet complex profile. Vibrant, mouthwatering acidity dances on the palate, while generous volume and texture from aging peacefully on its lees provides an unmistakable richness.

Les pierres qui décident
The rocks that decide
- Style: A Sauvignon Blanc inspired by the pure and focused wines of the Loire Valley, where the rocks "decide" the style.
- Variety: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
- AVA: Russian River Valley - Sonoma County
Bursting with an aromatic intensity rarely seen in Sauvignon Blanc, the 2019 Shared Notes Les pierres qui décident is a stunning display; where concentration meets delicacy. Incredibly bright notes of fresh lime, citrus blossom, and lemon peel are backed by a distinct salinity formed from the coastal influences of this Russian River Valley site. Brief skin contact prior to pressing gives added texture to the palate, while aging on the lees in 132 gallon French oak puncheons maintains purity of the vibrant, crisp flavors in this refreshingly dry wine. Bracing acidity on the finish provides the pillar that will allow this wine to continue aging for many years to come.
