Sandar & Hem

About Sandar & Hem

The vineyards range from the warmer sandy-loam Aptos-Corralitos region in the far south to the white Zyante sands and decomposed granites of Ben Lomond above Santa Cruz to the steep, rocky shale sites of the North Skyline region with its brisk ocean breezes and cool evening fog.

Enjoy the journey of exploration and discovery of the Santa Cruz Mountains through these amazing vineyard sites.

What Sandar & Hem Say

We strive to tell the story of the Santa Cruz Mountains and its unique vineyard sites through transparently made wines, and in particular showcase Chardonnay which we believe captures the essence of the terroirs and through its many expressions paints a picture which helps us to interpret such a rugged, complex, and endlessly beautiful place.

What Jennifer loves

The winding roads of the Santa Cruz Mountains are lined with redwoods and forest. The change in elevation is mesmerising and the fog helps to direct the style of the wines, lean and lovely.
