Alma Rosa Winery & Vineyards was founded in 2005 by Sta. Rita Hills pioneer winegrower, and Vineyard Hall of Fame inductee, Richard Sanford. Alma Rosa Winery & Vineyards places a focus on cool-climate varietals best suited to the Sta. Rita Hills AVA, chiefly Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, with additional production of Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris. The wines are distinctive, expressive, and are exemplary of the region. Alma Rosa Winery & Vineyards is committed to sustainable agricultural and business practices including organic farming and green building techniques. Alma Rosa's estate vineyards are certified organic by California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF), and were the first to achieve that recognition in the region. The name Alma Rosa is a tribute to the soul of the original Santa Rosa land grant on which the estate vineyards are planted. We look forward to sharing our wines with you!

Separate tables as tasting space which was interesting. Kevin, our host was knowledgeable and friendly. Enjoyed the pinots most and bought a bottle for home. Would recommend

I had the pleasure to meet the owners of this winery. While we were tasting their wines Me and Richard (the owner) had a long conversation about this wine region, he was a pioneer in this land.

Looking for a Tasteing room away from the winery with nice Decore and great setting Give this one a try. The wine is much the same as other Winery's but the relaxing Room that you taste the Wine in is really neat Design nice Furinture.
