Lando Winery

Russian River Valley, Sonoma, California

“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.  The 2018 vintage represents our seventh release of Pinot Noirs.  They’re intense and fresh fruit driven with silky textures – we hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
