I’ll be pouring our wines at the Tenzing Wine & Spirits portfolio tasting next Monday the 24th. If you’re a wine buyer in Chicago, please stop by the Sandhi table and say hello. It’ll be a great tasting.
Pebble Beach Food & Wine Festival
~ 4/20/2017 ~
This year marks the 20th year I’ve participated in this event, dating back to when it was called the Masters Food & Wine and in addition to being a great festival, it provides a nice venue for sommeliers from all over the country to get together, service tons of panels, luncheons, and dinners, and then let loose late into the night. Hope to see you there.
Heritage Radio Interview
The perfect Santa Barbara Day
I recently had a classic Santa Barbara day with an old protégé and friend, Brian McClintic. He captured it all on his blog and in an inaugural Viticole Podcast episode. Check out the Podcast episode HERE.
As I wrap up the research portion of my upcoming book, The Atlas of Taste, and get ready to write, the topic of rocks and vineyard geology is top of mind. Brian gave me a chance to dive deep on that and much more, especially as it relates to our soils here in the Sta. Rita Hills. I hope you’ll enjoy and subscribe to his podcast.
Jancis Robinson Feature Article
We’ve been fortunate to follow the meteoric rise of Elaine Chukan Brown’s wine writing career. She is as thoughtful and inquisitive as they come and her transition from academic philosopher to wine writer roughly coincided with the birth of Sandhi. Elaine has tasted our wines from the first vintage and this long-form piece for jancisrobinson.com is the most in-depth and nuanced writing on our wines to date.
