Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Recommendation: Alma Rosa Winery 2005 Pinot Gris, Santa Barbara County Thekla and Richard Sanford are proud to present the debut wines from their new winery... Winemaker Tasting Notes: Crisp-textured, spry of character with a vivacious and up-beat personality, here's a wonderful food wine with a pleasant edginess in its floral-citrus fruit profile...one sip leads to the next, and on...We're thinking about eggplant involtini, roasted red peppers filled with prociutto, pesto and mozzarella, calamari, vegetable couscous, any tapa/appetizer, grilled shrimp with fennel...

Pioneer winegrowers in the Sta. Rita Hills AVA since 1970, Thekla and Richard Sanford have left their namesake winery and are pleased to present the wines from their winery, Alma Rosa Winery & Vineyards. With over 38 years experience winegrowing in this region, their energies will continue to be focused on excellence in Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and feel this new beginning gives them a greater opportunity to honor the unmistakable relationship between the healthiness of the soil, the energy of the vines, and ultimately the soul of the wine. “For over 20 years, my wife Thekla and I have focused on what’s most important to us: sustainable business practices and organic farming. We are deeply committed to the environment and the soulful connection with our employees and the people who enjoy our wine.” says Richard. With over 100 acres of certified organic estate vineyards in the Sta. Rita Hills AVA (the first vineyards to be certified in Santa Barbara County) Alma Rosa Winery offers Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc in addition to their Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Their acclaimed Pinot Noir Vin-Gris (as seen in the movie Sideways) is also available. With a vision for a viable agricultural future and an environment that is safe for our children, Richard and Thekla and the staff at Alma Rosa Winery hope to continue to bring our customers together to share good food, good times and great wine.

The first thing you notice in this wine is a burst of fresh floral aromatics and a full-blown fresh ripe apricot fruitiness. The stone-fruit motif is continued on the palate, along with a bit of tangerine and the clean wet stone mineral effect that is the benchmark of La Encantada Vineyard Pinot Gris.
