The Estate

SAMsARA Wine Company was founded in 2002. The winery name is a Sanskrit word meaning “the eternal cycle of life” representing “the eternal cycle that” “every vine and wine goes through in its lifetime.” SAMsARA’s philosophy of pristine and healthy fruit allows for a non-manipulated wine-making process. SAMsARA’s fruit is grown in ¾-acre plots of personally selected rows in various Sta. Rita Hills vineyards.

Wine Making

An optimal growing site for Syrah and other varieties, Zotovich Vineyard is comprised of 35 acres in the northern part of the Sta. Rita Hills between Buellton and Lompoc. The vineyard is made up of mostly diatomaceous earth and sandy loam soils that create intense, mineral-driven wines.

Food Suggestions

Pairs well with beef, lamb, deer, venison, and poultry dishes.

"Sanguine aromas of rust and crushed rocks meet with uncracked peppercorns, purple and red flowers on the dynamic nose of this bottling. Currant and strawberry flavors pop on the palate, where zippy acidity lifts white-pepper, thyme and purple-flower elements into a unique and delicious combination."
