2018 Sandlands Red Table Wine


Tegan Passalacqua is the Director of Winemaking for Turley Cellars. Sandlands is his personal project with his wife Olivia Passalacqua.

55% Carignane & 45% Mataro from Contra Costa County.

“Sweet red cherry, red plum, violet and spice are front and center in this racy, exuberant red. Time in the glass brings out darker tonalities along with hints of game, smoke, charcoal embers and licorice that are highly suggestive of Mataro. Savory, bold and full of character, the 2018 has so much to offer.” – Vinous

Sandlands is the personal project of Tegan and Olivia Passalacqua. The line-up encompasses the forgotten classic California varieties, primarily grown in decomposed granite (sand), from regions and vineyards that have been farmed for many generations but have remained the outliers of California viticulture.

Tegan, a Napa Valley native, got his start in the wine industry working in winery labs in Napa. He has worked in the cellars of Craggy Range in New Zealand with Doug Wisor, with Eben Sadie in the Swartland of South Africa, and with Alain and Maxime Graillot in the Northern Rhone Valley of France. For the past eleven years, he has worked for Turley Wine Cellars, working his way up from harvest intern to Winemaker/Vineyard Manager.
