Sandlands 2019 release date

#1 Post by Tom G l a s g o w » February 2nd, 2019, 7:46 am

As a PSA and an effort to reduce feelings of panic brough on by resurrecting the 2018 release thread, let’s use this thread for comments.

The release appears to be coming in early to mid-February per Instagram.

Thank you for the info. Wine budget drastically lower due to retirement. But, have been holding back for this release. One of the only lists I can still afford (and love a great deal!).

In email today:
SANDLANDS VINEYARDS
2019 RELEASE

We are very excited to share our 2017 vintage wines with you, and we’re happy to report that we expanded the line-up to showcase additional vineyards and areas we love.

We can't thank you enough for your support of our project, which allows us to make wines we believe in from special vineyards in our beloved Golden State.

Best wishes for 2019,
Tegan, Olivia, William and Milo Passalacqua
Now onto the wines...

We are offering 10 wines, including three new wines to the line-up. The first is a wine that I have wanted to make since Sandlands began. Our 2017 Contra Costa County Red Table Wine will feel familiar to you as it is a blend of 65% Carignane and 35% Mataro from the same vineyard in Contra Costa that which we have made wine since 2010. Contra Costa County and its old vines inspired the project from day one. It is a growing region that has not been changed since prohibition, with its head-trained, dry- farmed vineyards scattered throughout the deep blow sands and composed of three main varieties - Zinfandel, Carignane and Mataro. I chose the last two to make a wine that I believe is a good representation of Contra Costa County wine. Next, our Amador County Mission hails from North America's oldest producing vineyard with vines planted in 1854, and finally, our Napa Valley Refosco comes from the Casa Nuestra estate in St. Helena. We only made 50 cases of the last two wines, so there is not much to go around.

Allocations. We have tried to be very fair with allocations and have offered more wine to those who have purchased from us the longest. Although allocations are not guaranteed, we have set them up so that most everyone should be able to purchase all the wines they are offered.

Shipping. We have again made the decision to subsidize the shipping charges. We are offering a flat rate of $25.00 for ground shipping for orders up to 6 bottles and $40.00 for orders of 7-12 bottles. 13-18 bottles will be $60.00, and 19+ bottles will be $80.00. This is for shipping in the US only, of course.

I clicked through and had minimal allocations of a few wins (chenin, one mataro, etc.) but everything else was either unavailable (mission, refosco, Enz Mataro, syrah). Grabbed what I could!

Low allocation, but got what I wanted. A case with a good mix; only got one mission and refosco (I’ve been on the list from the beginning).My goal was a case and I got it delivered for under $400! Great wine at a reasonable price. Excited for the new varietals.

Got my order to go through! I have been buying since the initial release and got small allocations of 1-4 bottles on all wines, with options to wishlist additional bottles of Red Table Wine, Trousseau, Syrah and Lodi Chenin. Only allocated one bottle each of Mission and Refosco.

Woo! My first order was last year, so I wasn't allocated the Refosco (counting on others here to tell me how it is!), but I am happy with my order. A nice mix of Chenin, Trousseau, and Mataro for me, with emphasis on the various Chenins. It is ridiculous how good these wines are at these prices, especially with how fashionable they've become.

Signed-up last March and no soup for me. Lots of things hitting right now, so I won't say that is bad news from a monetary standpoint.

While typing this:

Thank you for your interest in Sandlands wine. Today we are releasing the first round of our 2017 wines. Due to demand that exceeds our production, we are first offering wine to those who have purchased previously from us.

There is a chance that we may have a limited quantity of wine left over from the offer. In that case, we will offer a small bit of wine to you on a first come, first serve basis, beginning approximately February 14th.

We hope that in the not too distant future, we have more wine and that we can make it available to you.

Cheers,

FWIW I've been buying since the first release and was only allocated one Refosco and one Mission, which I'm totally fine with. Allowing early buyers to monopolize your already small production doesn't make sense.

I really like the wines, love exploring obscure varieties, love the prices, love the simple once/year ordering, love supporting a Napa local who came grassroots style and really knows his shit.

For those who enjoy exploring obscure (for California) grape varieties, may I recommend looking into the Matthiasson winery.

Been buying since the first release. I am offered everything and usually leave some over for others to experience as I did this year. Excited to try the Mission Refosco Red Blend and ALWAYS take my fair share of Chenin.

Took a mixed 6 pack even though I'm really cutting back on purchases this year... this just isn't the place to cut. Great wines that won't break the bank. Been buying since the 2013 vintage and got allocated a Mission and a Refosco. Thank you Tegan!

Learned my lesson last year...bought ALL the Chenin Blanc(my fav) offered...as well as the 2 Matero, and 2 Trousseau...wish list the Mission and Refosco. 14 bottles kicked me into the $60 shipping...so I thought about cutting it back to 12 for the $40 shipping...but decided what the hell...I want all those wines, and hope I get my wish list wines.

Wonder why Tegan is calling it "Lodi" Chenin Blanc from his Kirschenmann vineyard...and not Kirschenmann as he did in 2015? Anyone know?

Ordered all the reds w/max wish lists, can never have enough Sandlands. Just wish the Chenin appealed more to my palate, although my wallet is glad it doesn't.

Btw, if anyone's ever stranded in Milwaukee and wants to do a Sandlands tasting, would be a great excuse for me to open up multiples...which are really starting to accumulate lol.

Alex, I think you and I did almost exactly the same thing.
I bought all the reds, and no whites . While i enjoy Chenins, I really prefer the Loire expression over anywhere else. With 250+ bottles of Huet, plus more from Foreau and others, I'm good on Chenins. :-)

Not so fast. I feel if any winery gets to be too much % of my cellar, I will stop buying them. First, we don't know how well or for how long these will age (I like wines to have the ability to age from 10-20 years) and second, I want enough variety to ensure I won't get palate fatigue or burnout. Hasn't happened with Sandlands yet, but I don't want to find out.

I was just checking Sandlands pricing on Wine-Searcher - many of these wines are selling for ~$50 a bottle! Are these collected on the secondary market? Just curious...

The little bit that makes it into retail does tend to go for pretty high prices. I don't think it's a wine with a secondary market / flipping dimension, but one does pay a premium for it at retail.

I was just checking Sandlands pricing on Wine-Searcher - many of these wines are selling for ~$50 a bottle! Are these collected on the secondary market? Just curious...
The little bit that makes it into retail does tend to go for pretty high prices. I don't think it's a wine with a secondary market / flipping dimension, but one does pay a premium for it at retail.
Yeah, they are so delicious and there is not a lot out there that I doubt much makes it to secondary. Most get drunk up with pleasure and glee by the folks who buy them. [cheers.gif]

I had to get one each of the Sandlands Mourvèdre bottlings, the Refosco (my first), plus the Contra Costa Red Table Wine.


Can anyone help me with what to expect from a Refosco?

I think I may have has a red blend from Castoro Cellars that was predominantly Refosco many years ago, but I don't remember anything about it.

Anyone know anything about the Coombsville Chardonnay and Merlot that Tegan posted on instagram?

Learned my lesson last year...bought ALL the Chenin Blanc(my fav) offered...as well as the 2 Matero, and 2 Trousseau...wish list the Mission and Refosco. 14 bottles kicked me into the $60 shipping...so I thought about cutting it back to 12 for the $40 shipping...but decided what the hell...I want all those wines, and hope I get my wish list wines.

Wonder why Tegan is calling it "Lodi" Chenin Blanc from his Kirschenmann vineyard...and not Kirschenmann as he did in 2015? Anyone know?
Wish list granted.

Second wave just dropped and was able to pick up a mixed 6-pack.
