Started in 2010 by Rajat Parr (wine director for Michael Mina restaurants), and Sashi Moorman (winemaker for Stolpman), Sandhi focus on crafting wine from select vineyards in the Santa Barbara County. It is because of their focus for balance that these two are so determined to find vineyard sites from the region that are old-vine, have cold temperatures and windy exposures. They want wines with vibrancy, freshness and energy, so they prefer neutral barrel and concrete vessel, employing a conservative amount of new French oak, and all wines are wild-yeast fermented.

ANTONIO GALLONI 95 POINTS - "The 2020 Chardonnay Sanford and Benedict is a pretty powerful wine, especially from this section of the ranch planted on own rooted vines dating back to 1971. Deep and phenolic, with tremendous intensity, the 2020 is impressive right out of the gate. The purity of the fruit is just striking. Tangerine oil, honey, chamomile, mint and dried flowers lend resonance throughout, making for a totally unique Chardonnay. I can't help notice that the S and B Chardonnay is more interesting than the Pinot."
