Sanford Winery | Santa Barbera

Sanford Winery Vineyards in Sta. Rita Hills Santa Barbera, California

The first pioneering vineyards in Santa Barbara were planted at Sanford Winery in 1971. This renowned cool climate AVA was not only launched by the planting of the Sanford & Benedict Vineyard, but also expanded to neighbors’ plantings through cuttings from this iconic vineyard. For over 40 years now, this iconic vineyard has set the standard for quality in the region and is home to the oldest Pinot Noir vines in the county. Today, the estate is owned, farmed and cared for by the Terlato family and is comprised of the Sanford & Benedict and La Rinconada Ranches and their vineyards.
