60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 20% Mourvedre. Land of Saints is a collaboration between Angela and Jason Osborne (A Tribute to Grace Wine Company), and Manuel Cuevas (C2 Cellars), who met during the 2013 vintage and have been discussing sunshine, moon signs, and our Kiwi/Cornish/Mexican-American roots ever since. Three founders stem from three beautifully different corners of the globe, united by a love of California and the vinous expressions of Santa Barbara County. A little bit about the name Land of Saints – Josh hails from the county of Cornwall in Southwest England which has a rich and ancient history. Around 410AD the country entered a period known as the ‘age of the saints’ as holy people came and lived in this stunningly beautiful county. In the following centuries over 70 of them left their name as a legacy to the land, as a result, Cornwall became affectionately known as the ‘Land of Saints’. This organic Rhone blend comes from Los Alamos Valley, Los Olivos, and Happy Canyon with the soils being an ancient seabed of granite and clay. All the grapes went through wild yeast fermentation with the Grenache having 40% whole cluster and the Syrah going through carbonic fermentation. All 3 wines are aged separately in neutral French oak barriques for 15 months before being blended. Though a bolder wine in body and alcohol the spirit of this wine is juicy, fresh, and herbal. Red to blue fruit with hints of earth and leather, this is a superb wine. We absolutely love Land of Saints and it’s because they love California so much and it shows in their wine.
