Sauvignon Blanc by
Bibiana and Jeff

"Shared Notes, one of the most exciting emerging projects in California."

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.

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: 80% Sauvignon Blanc / 20% Semillon
  • AVA: Russian River Valley - Sonoma County

The 2014 "Les leçons des maîtres" is a blend of 80 percent Sauvignon Blanc and 20 percent Semillon. The color is a vibrant light green. The aromas are a stunning and vivacious array of white peach, passion fruit, green mango, honeydew melon, fejoa guava and lemon oil. On the palate is a savory and tight display of texture and flavor, with highlights of orange zest through a firmly structured finish.

Les pierres qui décident
The rocks that decided

  • 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

The 2014 "Les pierres qui décident" is where finesse and intensity meet. This wine is 100% Sauvignon Blanc, and is a bright, focused, pure and intense display. The bud of the cassis flower (blackcurrants) is a classic Sauvignon Blanc aroma that is highlighted here, with white flowers and key lime embedded in the fresh scent of ocean air. The aromas all flirt and mingle throughout the glass. The palate is refreshing and gives a mouthwatering experience of acidity and salinity. It builds on the structure and creates the remarkably long finish -- a rarity for a Sauvignon Blanc.
