Back in November of last year this blog had the whole month dedicated to the wines of Matchbook, and it included the article A Brief History of Matchbook Wine Company. So to learn more about Matchbook, feel free to check out that article. They have a pretty cool story. Things get set on fire.
Chasing Venus is Matchbook Wine Company's Sauvignon Blanc project. It's named after Captain Cook's personal mission in 1769 to study Venus while he explored the oceans of the Southern Hemisphere, where he discovered New Zealand and Australia. The label has a Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, New Zealand and one from Russian River Valley, California.
