GILROY, Calif., Jan. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Sarah's Vineyard, one of the rising stars of California's Central Coast, has announced a wholesale partnership with Vision Wine Brands. Established in 2008 and based in Port Chester, Vision's sales teams currently represent 20 domestic boutique labels; Vision also imports brands from 12 different countries overseas. This will be the first real opportunity for on and off-premise accounts in New York to have access to Sarah's Vineyard's sought-after, limited releases.
Tim Slater, owner / winemaker at S.V., is looking forward to seeing his wines reach a wider audience: "Vision has a terrific team of professionals bringing a great selection of wines to retailers and restaurateurs in New York. Like us, they are a small business that puts the emphasis on quality and customer service. Vision's diverse, interesting portfolio is a great fit for us; Sarah's Vineyard is honored to be paired with such a reputable company." Initially, Vision will be presenting S.V.'s "Santa Cruz Mountains" Chardonnay and "Central Coast" Pinot Noir releases to its key accounts.
The Sarah's Vineyard estate and label is a labor of love for winegrower Tim Slater. The property occupies 18 acres in the cool climate "Mt. Madonna" district of the southern Santa Cruz Mountains. Tim in his former life has been a DJ, a musician, and a successful "micro-machining" engineer with many patents to his name. At S.V., he channels both his inner "mad scientist" and his artistic side to grow and produce world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Tim also cultivates his interest in the traditional Rhone varietals, with plantings of Grenache, Viognier, Roussanne, Grenache Blanc, Piquepoul Blanc, Clairette Blanche, Mourvedre, and Counoise. The popular Sarah's Vineyard Tasting Room is open daily on Hecker Pass Road, outside of Gilroy. S.V.'s online home is SarahsVineyard.com
