At LANDO Wines we believe in producing intensely flavored and yet balanced wines. Our definition of balance relates to beautiful and lush aromatics, a sensuous and saturating mid palate, and a lengthy captivating finish – a complete wine from start to finish. These are the wines we enjoy drinking and sharing with friends and family”, Sam Lando
Sam Lando started his career in the wine business in the mid-nineties working for two of the large global wine producers, and soon identified his true love of working with small boutique wineries…and Pinot Noir. While his emphasis was sales and marketing, he realized early on the need to understand as much as possible about differing winemaking and viticulture techniques. The second half of his employed career was working with and becoming friends with some of the best new world Pinot Noir producers in the Russian River Valley, it was a natural evolution to begin hobby winemaking.
In the summer of 2012, Sam and his wife Jennifer decided to make the leap and take their winemaking hobby to the next level. They borrowed against their savings and began building the foundation to develop a small Pinot Noir focused winery. Today, the Lando’s make their wines at one of the most sought after, high end custom crush facilities in north America, Grand Cru Custom Crush. They do not have a tasting room and only see guests occasionally based on availability. The greater majority of the LANDO Wines are offered twice a year to their mailing list friends (via email and detailed allocations to each person). These release offerings take place in February and September of each year. The Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays are intense and fresh fruit driven with silky textures…wines they enjoy drinking and sharing. To learn more or join the mailing list, visit landowines.com.
