We are thrilled to welcome the 2018 vintage of Domaine de la Cote on our shelves. For those of you unfamiliar with this superlative Santa Barbara project, prepare to be wowed. This is Cali Pinot but with a definite homage to Burgundy. Keep reading to learn more!
Domaine de La Cote is the joint project of Sashi Moorman and Rajat Parr focusing entirely on estate Pinot Noir and single sites. The project started with Sashi’s discovery of these intense ocean influenced sites in 2007, and they produced their first vintage in 2011.
Both Rajat and Sashi came to the wine business via the restaurant world. Rajat was a renowned sommelier, and Sashi worked in kitchens for several years before a five year internship at the Ojai Vineyard (in Ojai, CA). In 2001 Sashi joined Stolpman Vineyards, where he still acts as a consultant.
