The Sanford & Benedict vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills AVA produces some of California's best Chardonnays. Childhood friends Duncan Arnot and Nathan Roberts use fruit from and old-vine section of this legendary site to produce a wine as iconic as the vineyard it comes from. Inviting ripe fruit and a perfect creamy texture from start to finish. We get a tiny allocation each year and it doesn't hang around for long.

92/100 - Beautifully textured, with pretty, exotic notes that add character. All the resonance of Sanford & Benedict comes through loud and clear. The 2022 is generous and inviting, with fine balance and class. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous 

Notes of apple and pear, with a delightful creamy texture.
Produced from organically grown vines that are dry farmed
Try with rotisserie chicken, or baked fish dishes

The Sanford and Benedict Vineyard was planted in 1971 by Richard Sanford and Michael Benedict, a foundational planting as the first vineyard in the Santa Rita Hills of Santa Barbara County. The original site was chosen on a north-facing bench above the Santa Ynez River, just ten miles from the Ocean. The unique east-west orientation of the Santa Ynez Valley provides a direct pathway to the Pacific and its strong cooling influence, drawing cool, foggy air into the valley. The Chardonnay selection is the old Wente clone, planted on its own roots directly in the sandy, silica-rich diatomaceous soils of this incredible site, which have produced wines of singular character for decades.
