Happy Earth Day!

A Toast to Sustainability
& The New 2023 Sauvignon Blanc


Today is not just a day to reflect on the beauty of our planet, but also an opportunity to celebrate the strides made in sustainability, especially in the world of winemaking. 

At Eleven Eleven, Earth Day holds a special significance, blending our commitment to environmental stewardship with the joy of sharing exceptional wines with our community. And this year, we’re excited to share with you our newest release - the 2023 Beckstoffer Sauvignon Blanc!

Sourced from Andy Beckstoffer’s (often hailed as the godfather of Napa Valley grape growing) Melrose Vineyard nestled in the heart of Napa Valley’s Rutherford AVA, this vintage is a testament to the harmony between nature and winemaking.

Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, what sets the 2023 Beckstoffer Sauvignon Blanc apart is not just its vibrant citrus notes or its tantalizing minerality, but also the story of sustainability woven into every sip.

Since 1970, Beckstoffer Vineyards has been committed to sustainable farming across their operations, adopting new technologies and practices that allow their Northern California winery clients (like us!) to enter the 21st century as consistent producers of many of the best wines in the world.

The decision to source from Melrose Vineyard was not only driven by the quality of the grapes but also by a shared commitment to environmentally-friendly viticulture. Melrose Vineyard, once a Christmas tree farm, has now evolved into a sanctuary for some of Napa Valley's finest grapes, including the exceptional Eleven Eleven Sauvignon Blanc that graces our glasses.

By pioneering innovations in areas like drip irrigation, vine spacing, bench graft production, vineyard technology and farming management, Beckstoffer Vineyards utilizes new methods to monitor and analyze vine health and productivity, manage water use, and improve vineyard efficiency.

Aligning ourselves with partners who prioritize sustainability, Eleven Eleven continues to uphold our promise to minimize our impact on the earth while crafting wines of distinction. In our own Estate Vineyards, we extend this promise through hand-harvesting, solar energy, precise irrigation, carbon-neutral shipping, and more.

As we raise a glass to Earth Day, let us also raise awareness of the importance of sustainability in every industry, including the wine industry. 

With each sip of our newest 2023 Beckstoffer Sauvignon Blanc, we invite you to join us in a journey of appreciation for everything the planet has to offer and a commitment to preserving its beauty for generations to come!
