Grenache co-fermented with small amounts of Syrah and Viognier. Sanguis Wines is located in a converted warehouse, in the heart of Santa Barbara's industrial zone. Their wines are made from the grapes grown between the Santa Ynez and Santa Maria Valleys—this juxtaposition is representative of the style of wine that is Sanguis. The fact that everything has an opposite holds an inexplicable but understandable attraction for all of us. Too much wine these days seems to strive toward a singular ideal at the sacrifice of variety and downright opposite examples of beauty.
