C R Sandidge Wines
With twenty four years of internationally acclaimed winemaking experience in Europe and the United States, Ray Sandidge III started his carreer in the mid 80’s at Pindar Vineyards in Long Island then moved to Germany to be the winemaker for Georg Breuer Germany winery founded in 1880; taking this winery into the TOP 50 out of 12,000 German wineries. He then returned to WA State working at Washington Hills Cellars working with Brian Carter as associate winemaker, then to Hyatt from 93’ – 97’, next onto becoming the winemaker for Kestrel Vintners from 1997 – 2004 and finally being named the Director of Winemaking for the Lake Chelan Winery where he now continues to handcraft our families own private C. R. Sandidge Wines label. Only the finest barrels of wine are ultimately selected for our C.R. Sandidge labeled wines. We begin with the highest quality grapes grown in Washington State. Our contracted growers reduce crop size by 40% - 60% of Washington State norms and water stresses the vines. This, in turn, produces small, highly flavored, intensely aromatic, and color-rich berries. All of the Sandidge Winery’s contracted fruit is hand picked and sorted to insure only the riper primary cluster fruits are made into wine.
