Terre et Sang on Grand will debut on February 17th with special tasting offerings
Los Olivos, CA, Feb 13, 2023 — A new addition to the vibrant Los Olivos area, Terre et Sang on Grand will open its doors this week, showcasing the wines from up-and-coming Santa Barbara producer Terre et Sang, a partnership between mother-and-son founders Dalita and Duncan Harmon. The grand opening will be February 17, 2023.
“Selling only to our list, a tasting room just wasn’t in the plans until we found the right place to tell our story our way, inviting people to enjoy our wines into the evening,” said Terre et Sang co-founder Dalita Harmon. “We are thrilled to welcome visitors to our new home where we can provide an immersive tasting experience.”
Conjuring the same focus and attention to detail as they do with their wines, the Harmons have taken a unique approach with their tasting space. Located in an historic building in the heart of Los Olivos, Terre et Sang on Grand is eclectic in its design aesthetic, melding the look and feel of the 1905-era residence with an experimentally modernist viewpoint. Against a color palette of stormy gray, natural elements of stone, leather, steel and wood add texture and depth, creating a striking backdrop for the winery’s hand-crafted Syrah and Grenache wines and blends. Terre et Sang on Grand will offer a lounge-like ambience, be open late and include pop-up partnerships and innovative events.
The Terre et Sang portfolio reflects a spare-no-effort approach, from exacting canopy management, precision pruning and cluster shaping in the vineyards, to more labor-intensive systems in the winery. Terre et Sang winemaker Duncan Harmon is rigorous in his approach, refining, testing new techniques and pushing boundaries with unflinching precision. Without conventional training, he takes risks in the winery to develop his own bold, ethereal style. The resulting wines are compelling expressions of site, highlighting some of the great vineyards of the Santa Barbara region, and have received high critical acclaim.
“Making wine from these legendary vineyards comes with great responsibility and we hold ourselves to the highest standards to uncompromisingly express the uniqueness of each site,” said Duncan Harmon. “With Terre et Sang on Grand, we have the chance to share more about these sites and invite visitors to experience the wines in a relaxed setting.”
Terre et Sang on Grand will be open 11 a.m. to late-ish Thursday through Monday beginning on February 17 at 2982 Grand Avenue, Los Olivos. Reservations will be available through Tock.
