Winestyr Review

This wine comes from the original, own-rooted, 1971 plantings at Sanford & Benedict. Planted on silex and clay soils, this gently-sloping, north-facing vineyard reacts very differently each year.

What We Love

  • Historic vineyard
  • Prime terroir for Pinot Noir

Experience

Sandhi represents a union essential to the production of wine: the collaboration between man, earth, and vine. The willing participation of all three elements is necessary to make great wine, and the winegrower must make this collaboration rich and nourishing for all involved. An understanding of these joint efforts informs Sandhi’s exploration of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines throughout the Santa Barbara County terroir.
