Sandlands Red Table Wine Contra Costa County 2020


Country: USA

Region: Contra Costa

Type: Red Wine

Grape: Cinsault/Carignane/Zinfandel

Sandlands is the personal project of Tegan and Olivia Passalacqua. The line-up encompasses the forgotten classic California varieties, primarily grown in decomposed granite (sand), from regions and vineyards that have been farmed for many generations but have remained the outliers of California viticulture. Primarily head-trained, dry-farmed and own rooted, the vineyards Sandlands works with harken back to California’s roots of exploration, wonder, and hard work. 

The vineyard for this Sanlands Red Table Wine was planted in the 1920s in what is classified as Dehli blow sand (decomposed granite that has been deposited by wind and water). The blend is 65% Carignane / 35% Mataro.

Bright cranberry, peach, violets and driftwood. Fine, supple, acid-driven finish.
