Sandhi - Evening Land

Rajat Parr's sommelier career earned him accolades from James Beard awards to the title of Master Sommelier, all while influencing the wine scene around the world. His passion led him to partner with winemaker Sashi Moorman in 2010, and ever since they’ve been crafting delicious Pinot Noir and Chardonnay on the West Coast. 

Their Sandhi label celebrates the terroir of Santa Barbara County, California. Focusing on the top sites, like the historic Sanford & Benedict vineyard, Sandhi’s range of bottles offers an easy choice for weeknight drinking and special occasions.

Evening Land shows another side of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, this time from the diversely planted Seven Springs vineyard in Eola-Amity Hills, Oregon. Some of the oldest known clones in the U.S. are cultivated here, a site where numerous award-winning wines have been grown.

The wines of Sandhi and Evening Land are balanced, finessed, and likely to surprise you. If it’s been a while since you enjoyed domestic Chardonnay or Pinot Noir, check in and taste for yourself the quality of American winemaking.
