PREMIUM QUALITY WINES. Intentionally and sustainably Made.

Our wines aren’t just distinctive, they also earn top ratings. Learn more about our stunning single vineyard releases and what sets SAMsARA Wine Co. apart.

SAMsARA produces limited releases of Pinot Noir, Syrah, Grenache and Chardonnay from carefully selected micro-sites within Sta. Rita Hill’s most distinctive vineyards. Our wines showcase the distinctive natural elements at play on each vineyard, harnessed through a low intervention winemaking style.


Using sustainably farmed, ultra-premium fruit from cool-climate vineyards makes the best wine, but don’t just take our word for it.
