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

Vibrant and lively, the 2015 “Les leçons des maîtres” has an effusive nose with notes of orange blossoms, lemon zest, white peach and gooseberry.  This wine is a blend of 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Semillon aged in small oak barrels.  The former gives the freshness of the aromatics and the later gives the structure and dense, limestone-like texture that fans out on the palate.   A remarkable wine for drinking now or aging for many years.

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

This wine is both beautifully delicate and intense at the same time. The 2015 “Les pierres qui décident” is a focused and pure Sauvignon Blanc from two vineyards located in the heart of Sonoma County.  Aging was carried out in oak barrels and on the lees with minimal stirring.  The nose is extremely fragrant with notes of floral perfume, green apple, citrus oil and the classic bud of the cassis plant.  The palate is energetic and powerful, with lots of minerality, salinity, and a core for refreshing acidity.  This wine drinks great now, but can also cellar for at least a decade.
