The Sanger Family of Wines
We produce wines under three distinctive labels —Consilience, Tre Anelli, and Marianello. These three labels unfold the enchanting tapestry of the Mediterranean wine experience in both wine and culture. Nestled in the heart of the California Central Coast, our wines are a harmonious blend of this rich region's essence and the timeless allure of the Old World Mediteranean experience.
At The Sanger Family of Wines, our vision is simple yet profound: to create exceptional wines that encapsulate the spirit of both the California Central Coast and the Old World, resulting in a collection that is as unique as it is captivating. Each label, Consilience, Tre Anelli, and Marianello, contributes its own distinctive character, producing wines that tell a story of heritage, passion, and authenticity.
Consilience takes center stage, as it was the first child. Born in 1997, our Consilience label celebrates the rich and captivating flavors of French varietals, produced in bold and expressive New World style.
Tre Anelli leans in on the potential of the Santa Ynez Valley, where uncommon Spanish and Portuguese varietals are showcased, offering a taste of the region's distinctive terroir.
Marianello is a heartfelt tribute to Bill Sanger's Italian heritage, featuring exclusively Italian varietals and Italian-style blends. The name Marianello was inspired; it is a poignant fusion of his grandparents' names, Maria and Nello to honor their memory. Each sip at Marianello is a loving homage to family roots, encapsulating the rich history and cultural legacy that defines our winemaking journey.
The union of these brands under The Sanger Family of Wines umbrella in December 2013 marked the beginning of a collective commitment to excellence. Our home in Solvang, California, serves as the perfect backdrop for this oenophilic adventure—a place where innovation meets tradition, and every sip transports you to a world where vineyards embrace the sun-drenched landscapes of the Central Coast.
Join us in Solvang and become a part of a journey where tradition, innovation, and passion converge, giving rise to an unparalleled wine experience. Cheers to the extraordinary flavors of The Sanger Family of Wines!
