Giesen featured in LA Times

Giesen is featured in an article in the LA Times! Patrick Comiskey writes on New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, a truly special variety of wine that the Giesen Brothers are well versed in.

But none has gone quite so far as Giesen. The brothers produce no less than eight Sauvignon Blanc bottlings, drawing in large part from a diligent exploration of their older vineyards, from the seaside plantings of Wairau to the gently rolling slopes of the Southern Valley.
