Famed vintner Richard Sanford, who discovered the now famous AVA of Sta. Rita Hills, and put this region on the Pinot Noir map back in the 1970’s. Since leaving Sanford Winery back in 2005, due to differences in business philosophy, Richard and Thekla founded Alma Rosa Winery & Vineyards, a new venture dedicated to organic farming and sustainable agriculture. The vineyards of Alma Rosa are located on an original Mexican land grant, Rancho Santa Rosa. In Spanish alma means soul; so the name Alma Rosa reflects the Sanfords’ view that their wines are a reflection of the soul of the rancho. Alma also expresses the soulful connection they enjoy with one another, their employees, and the land where they first became winegrowers more than 35 years ago. With over 100 acres of certified organic vineyards in the Sta. Rita Hills, Alma Rosa Winery & Vineyards focuses on continued excellence in Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The wines are food friendly and display the high acid, and extraordinary balance for which Richard Sanford’s wines have been known since 1976. This Chardonnay is made with fruit sourced mainly from White Hills Vineyard in the Santa Maria Valley. It is a special single block of 35-year-old vines on their own roots. The nose is of fragrant honeysuckle and lemon. The wine has a tart, refreshing brightness and is perfect for a hot summer day!
