A brief history
SODHANI Vineyards is a family owned 6.5 acre hillside vineyard in St Helena blessed with a unique terroir making limited releases of phenomenal, hand-crafted Cabernet Sauvignon wines by winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown.; Facing due east with sweeping views of the Vaca Mountains across the valley and perched at 400 feet elevation the vineyard is nestled in the dense forest in the foothills of Spring Mountain. Planted in 2000 with clones 7, 15, and 337 in rarest of volcanic Aiken stony clay loam soil, the vines are in full maturity producing spectacular fruit. With a unique microclimate, the evenings cool off dramatically during ripening season producing much higher acid levels. Due to the steep slope the vineyard is entirely hand farmed and meticulously hand harvested. Harvesting is performed in four different picks before dawn based on the perfect ripeness of each block.; Everything we do is in pursuit of delivering perfection in the bottle. From hand farming all year to selecting only the perfect grapes using the optical sorter and then aging in 100% new French oak barrels for 20 months, we make no compromises at any step of the winemaking.; Our winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown painstakingly produces gorgeous wines which are the true and perfect representation of our terroir.
