Notes from Sandlands:

8 barrels produced. From the same vineyard from which we produce our Carignane, this head-trained, own rooted, dry-farmed Mataro was planted in the 1920s. India ink, salted plum, black cherry, leather, fennel, cured meats, finishes with great tannin-acid synergy.V

Sandlands is the personal project of Tegan and Olivia Passalacqua. The line-up encompasses the forgotten classic California varieties, primarily grown in decomposed granite (sand), from regions and vineyards that have been farmed for many generations but have remained the outliers of California viticulture.

Primarily head-trained, dry-farmed and own rooted, the vineyards we work with harken back to California’s roots of exploration, wonder, and hard work.
