"ZIATA wines reflect not only a particular style of winemaking, but a sense of place and time: the vineyards, and that vintage’s growing season and harvest.”
Our commitment to crafting small-production wines of exceptional quality and distinction means they sometimes sell out before ZIATA lovers have a chance to purchase. That is why we offer priority access to existing customers, allowing them to purchase wines before their general release.

Thank you so much for your support of ZIATA Wines, we look forward to sharing our exceptional wines with you.
After all, what is a great wine if not shared?
The 2012 Ziata Sauvignon Blanc just jumps out of the glass, first with aromas of juicy white grapefruit and green apple. Just below these dominant characters are hints of ripe mango, lime zest and honeysuckle. Then more subtly, sweet grass, nutmeg and white flowers fill out the dynamic nose. It is classic and polished with a gentle viscosity that gives it depth and intensity. It is a totally dry wine, but with its generous fruit and mouth feel, it gives a slight perception of sweetness. The finish is bright, clean, long and lovely.
The aromas of this wine fill the senses with notes of strawberry and cherry and reveal layers of earth and piecrust. Background notes unfold with a hint of marjoram, saddle leather and wet stone. On the palate this is a bold pinot noir showing off red fruit with lush and playful, yet delicate tannins balancing well with the body and viscosity of the wine. It finishes with lingering bright and focused tones.
This deeply colored wine opens up beautifully in the glass to express aromas of blue fruits, violet candies, toast, anise and cinnamon. In the mouth, it is rich with blue and red fruit, and voluminous and velvety tannins fill the mid palate. The wine then moves seamlessly into a long and enticing finish, thanks to the wine’s fresh acidity.
