Nature & Agriculture in Sustainable Harmony ~Alma Rosa Winery was founded in 2005 by Sta. Rita Hills pioneer winegrowers Thekla and Richard Sanford. The Spanish name was chosen as a tribute to the place and the people behind the wines, "alma" meaning soul and "rosa" referring to the original California Rancho Santa Rosa land grant, the location of their Rancho El Jabalí Vineyard. Specializing in Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, Alma Rosa wines exemplify the characteristics of this special region. The new Alma Rosa Tasting Room opened in 2015, at the gateway to the Sta. Rita Hills in Buellton, just 1 mile off of Hwy 101. The space itself is a testament to the Sanford’s sense of design, and is consistent with the family’s dedication to quality and sustainability. It is a nod to Alma Rosa’s roots on the ranch while inviting a fresh, rustic, elegant take on reused and natural materials. Enjoy hosted tastings, wine-by-the-glass or hold a private event in this unique space.
