Alma Rosa captures the soul of “the Rosa” through wines that tell the story of the hills in the southern portion of the Sta. Rita Hills AVA.
Our wines reflect the soils, sun exposure, fog, cooling afternoon winds; and our long-standing connection with this place - carried by the voice of the vines.
Alma Rosa is deeply rooted in the winemaking history of the Santa Rosa hills, inside the Sta. Rita Hills AVA.
The unique geography, moderate climate and clay-loam soils attracted Richard Sanford to this area in the early 70’s where he pioneered Pinot Noir in Santa Barbara County decades before the “Sideways” movie furor.
