Wines that are singular, compelling and beautiful rely on great vineyards and proper farming in union with a healthy dose of confidence, determination and style.

Like great food, they can not exist without superior 'raw materials', the land where those are grown, or without a steady hand to shape them.


"The proper manner of calligraphy is nothing other than not being careless.  But in this way one’s writing will be simply sluggish and stiff. One should go beyond this and depart from the norm.  This principle applies to all things."

(From Hagakure, the book of the Samuray)

Sanguis wines are made in a converted warehouse in the heart of Santa Barbara's industrial zone (yes, there is one), from the grapes that we grow in the idyl that is called the Santa Ynez and Santa Maria Valleys - this juxtaposition is representative of the style of wine that is Sanguis.
