About the Producer
Sanford Winery is a renowned pioneer of cool-climate wine from the Santa Rita Hills, north of Santa Barbera. The legendary Sanford & Benedict vineyard was planted in 1971 by Richard Sanford and Michael Benedict, and from the very first vintages they produced highly acclaimed wines of great complexity. In 1980, the team of Michael Benedict and Richard Sanford would go their separate ways. Richard Sanford continued to make the wines, and subsequently planted the La Rinconada vineyard adjacent to the original vineyard. In 2002, the Terlato family became partners, by 2007 they bought the entire vineyard and have been making exceptional wines from these two sustainably cultivated Cru vineyards ever since. The vineyards and winery are certified by the California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance. This is a stunning Californian estate, and we are proud to have them on our shelves.
Vineyard and Winery
The La Rinconada Chardonnay comes from the southern and western edge of the vineyard. The light alluvial soils coupled with the cool and breezy exposure provides wines with exceptional purity charm and elegance.
