Piedrasassi cultivates grapes and grain in the Central Coast of California. Through our bread and wine, we endeavor to tell the stories of this unique region and its people. In the vineyards and fields, our family’s winery and bakery, we approach our work with a reverence for place and a responsible hand—We seek to celebrate the innate beauty of each harvest.
We primarily cultivate and vinify Syrah, a variety with which winemaker Sashi Moorman has worked for over two decades. Today, the viticultural heritage of the Northern Rhone and the pioneering ethos of the Central Coast equally inform his engagement with Syrah.
In the bakery, Melissa Sorongon freshly mills American heritage grains for naturally-leavened loaves that she bakes in a hand-built wood-fired oven. Melissa and her daughter, Juliet, bring each week’s bread and a selection of our wines to Santa Barbara’s Saturday farmers’ market.
