Sashi Moorman’s career in wine grew out of his interest in cooking and food. After graduating from Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, NY, Sashi worked in New York City and Washington, D.C., cooking professionally as a line-cook and sous-chef.
In 1996, Sashi moved to Ojai, California to work a five-year apprenticeship under Adam Tolmach at The Ojai Vineyard. In 2001, Sashi joined Stolpman Vineyards, integrating the winemaking and vineyard direction under one program.
Sashi and his wife, Melissa Sorongon, own Piedrasassi, a small winery and bakery where they produce syrah from distinctive Central Coast vineyards and grow heirloom wheat varieties for the production of wood-fired brick oven baked traditional breads.
Sashi and Melissa live in Lompoc, California with their 8 year old daughter, Juliet.← Back
