Master: Wrath Wines
Winemaker Sabrine Rodems
Wrath produces site-driven Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Syrah, and Sauvignon Blanc from their estate vineyard and other respected properties in the Santa Lucia Highlands. Their production is small, their distribution is limited and their wines reveal attitude, passion, and an inherent respect for what a vineyard can provide. Wrath is the brainchild of co-owner and wine director Michael Thomas who spent years in Italy working as an archaeologist. It was there he also developed a passion for great wine.
Seeing the many characteristics that Italy’s dramatic countryside shared with the rural and fertile Salinas Valley, the Thomas family bought San Saba Vineyards in 2007. Michael and winemaker Sabrine Rodems began an aggressive vineyard rejuvenation program, replanting large sections of the estate vineyard, and developed viticultural and winemaking methods that have resulted in award winning wines that showcase the unique topography, geology and climate of this beautiful and fertile piece of land.
