Saintsbury Winery

Our July ‪#‎CWAMemberMonday‬, Saintsbury Winery, was founded in 1981 by David Graves and Dick Ward and they still run their independent boutique winery to this day. As one of the original wineries in the region, Saintsbury combines creativity and passion with traditional Burgundian winemaking practices to produce site specific wines with balanced fruit, classic structure and the potential for aging. A must visit the next time you are in the ‪#‎Carneros region. http://www.saintsbury.com/Visit-Us ‪#‎CarnerosLove‬ ‪#‎CarnerosHistory‬

At Saintsbury Winery history and passion brought the founders David Graves and Dick Ward together. This ‪#‎CWAMemberMonday‬ duo met while they were students at UC Davis and found they had a common love for Burgundy and an appreciation for the writer George Saintsbury. A true meeting of the minds and palates started in 1977 and continues to date. ‪#‎CarnerosHistory‬ ‪#‎CarnerosLove‬

Carneros Wine Alliance
The Carneros Wine Alliance is a non-profit association of wineries and grape-growers in the Carneros American Viticultural Area (AVA).  Carneros is the only appellation located at the crossroads of two major wine regions, the Napa and Sonoma Valleys.  Influenced by the maritime breezes and fog from its southern border with the San Pablo Bay, Carneros produces the region’s finest Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and sparkling wines. The Carneros Wine Alliance is committed to promoting the distinction, diversity and above all, quality, of the grapes and wines from Carneros.
