Sandar & Hem – Rob Bergstrom, Ep. 61

The Marys are back in the Santa Cruz Mountains! On this latest pod we sit down with Sandar & Hem winemaker and storyteller Rob Bergstrom.
Wine and history have always been intertwined for Sandar & Hem winemaker Rob Bergstrom. To him, every bottle tells a unique story about the place it is grown, as well as being a lens on the wines and winemakers of past eras.

While Rob is passionate about Santa Cruz Mountains wine history, he’s also focused on moving the story forward. Rob brings forgotten, long lost vineyards forward, but also pushes the Santa Cruz Mountains AVA appellation to and beyond its limits of what is possible in grape growing, varieties and winemaking.

Join us for a great conversation!
