Located on the southwestern edge of the Sta. Rita Hills is the awe-inspiring vineyard site known as Bentrock (formerly Salsipuedes). As part of the “Four Corners” of the appellation, this north-facing block is at an elevation of 250 to 500 feet and is blasted daily by cold ocean winds. From the upper reaches of Bentrock, one can see the other Sandhi vineyard sites to the east. While only a nine year-old vineyard, Bentrock shows incredible potential, delivering intensely concentrated and sublime fruit. We believe that Bentrock’s unique location, close proximity to the ocean and exposed orientation creates a perfect environment for producing low-yielding grapes of high quality.
