It was a wonderful day, Robert was a knowledgeable host who went out of his way to explain how the winery functions and why Sanford Wines are as good as they are.

Clonal Tasting on 3/10/17 1:00 PM

We were greeted by a lovely member of your team, Leslie, who was friendly knowledgeable and engaging. She went out of her way to share her experiences at Sanford with us and make as feel like "friends" instead of just consumers who were there to buy product. Her expertise shined and, for our family who drinks fine wines frequently, we were amazed at how much we still could learn from Leslie.

Private Vineyard Picnic on 2/11/17 2:00 PM

To start, my husband and I were first timers and this place was a great start, we had a wine tasting tour and picnic. To start the drive up there was beautiful, green everywhere. Second, we were greeted by a gorgeous tour lady and a bar dude who got us started on getting tipsy right away. Our tour beauty was super awesome, the cellar, the scenery, tranquility, THE WINE! Will go back soon.
