Sauvignon Blanc by
Bibiana and Jeff

"Shared Notes, one of the most exciting emerging projects in California."
—Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media wood wedge

our story

Shared Notes is the winemaking joint-venture between wife and husband, Bibiana Gonzalez 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.

For other wines made by Bibiana, please visit Cattleya Wines, Alma de Cattleya Wines and Wines By Bibiana.

Les leçons des maîtres
2018
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

The 2018 Les Leçons des Maîtres has beautiful and vibrant aromas of grapefruit, crushed rocks, white peach and Anjou pear. The bouquet is generous and elegant. On the palate are the textural and richer notes of the Semillon with hints of nectarine. Bright acidity also brings out the mineral notes on the finish and also contribute to the age-ability of the wine. This wine is bright and intense now, but will age for at least a decade in the cellar.

Les pierres qui décident
2018
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

Laser focused and beaming is the 2018 Les Pierres qui Dècident. The nose shows citrus—orange blossom, key lime, blood orange—with additional notes of ocean mist and flinty minerality. The palate is refreshing and texturally precise, providing a great match for many foods or aging in the cellar.
