Overview
More
Saracina was named after a centuries-old farmhouse and vineyards in Tuscany where owners John Fetzer and Patty Rock spent their honeymoon. The main ranch is home to Saracina Vineyards, a small-production, state-of-the art, California Certified Organic (CCOF) winery and the first wine caves in Mendocino County. Working with winemaker, Alex MacGregor, they produce stylistically unique wines with lush California fruit and silky, soft tannins. Atrea, their second brand, focuses on interesting, quirky Rhone-style blends. Home to the first wine caves in Mendocino County, California, Saracina Ranch is reminiscent of the rural character of Napa Valley 30 years ago. Located in the small town of Hopland, in the Upper Russian River area of Mendocino County, Saracina is a 600-acre property with 300 acres in vineyards. It features hillsides, groves of 110-year-old olive trees, pomegranate orchards, organic vegetable gardens, bee hives and a bee garden and four ponds that attract myriad bird and animal life. The vines are hand-tended and farmed organically or biodynamically to maintain the vigor of the plants.

We came back here after our first visit last year. We liked the Malbec Rose last year and this year's was good as well. The pure Malbec was also good. They sell honey with a wonderful aroma.

Great location, great views and best of all great wines. I only like whites and they had a great variety--best Sauv Blanc I've had in awhile!

While staying in Mendocino, we put Saracina on our list as a must and I am so glad we did. Starting with their Sauvignon Blanc, which is nice, light and refreshing with not strong citrus notes like most. This was soft notes of kiwis and...More

The reason for the title of this review is because there are not enough superlatives in the English language to describe this place. First of all, if you want to visit Napa the way it was 30-40 years ago, go to Saracina. This place will...More
