Besides wrapping up the exciting 2021 harvest, we’re very happy to announce that Wine Enthusiast has awarded a number of our 2019 wines extremely favorable scores. While we make wine for ourselves and for you, our incredible customers, it’s always nice to receive some external validation for our hard work. 

Our Bruzzone and Bald Mountain Chardonnays, as well as our Mindego Ridge Pinot Noir all received 95 points, with most of our other 2019s receiving between 92 and 94 points.

A thank you to Edible Monterey for their story on Sandar & Hem!

“Recognizing the fabulous sources of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes here in the Santa Cruz Mountains, the couple currently make more than half a dozen Chardonnays—most of them vineyard designates, including from Bald Mountain, Bruzzone, Frances J, Le Boeuf and Mindego Ridge—as well as a Pinot Noir and Cabernet.”
