SANS LIEGESans Liege Wines "without a leader" was founded by winemaker Curt Schalchlin (pronounced SHAK-lin) and his wife Kara. Their focus is on producing fine Rhone red and white blends. They source their fruit from high quality growers mostly from Santa Barbara County. We gave Sans Liege wines a try and were convinced they are a perfect fit for A Hidden Vine. Small production and impressive, quality driven wines will leave a long lasting impression on your palate. They will certainly be added to your repertoire.
