It was only when the Sanford Winery was established in 1971 that the wine-potential of the Santa Barbara County was known to the world. The cool climate and the soil quality of this county encouraged the founders of this winery to plant the first vines in the Sanford & Benedict vineyard here. Currently, this winery is owned and managed by the members of the Terlato family, who have planted vines in other neighbouring vineyards such as La Rinconada as well.
The Pinot Noir Sanford & Benedict Vineyard offers stunning aromas and flavors of rose petals, spring flowers and violets to go with a core of darker berry fruit. Picking up additional minerality with time in the glass, it's medium-bodied, ultra-pure and focused, yet still has beautiful fruit and a seamless texture.
