Sarah’s Vineyard lounges elegantly over a rocky knoll, relaxing across 20 hilly acres in a hidden southwestern corner of the Santa Clara Valley. Tucked at the eastern foot of Mount Madonna near a windy mountain pass, the dynamic coastal California weather patterns create a wonderful microclimate for growing premium wine grapes; and from these gifted grapes we work to create equally gifted wines.
Tasting Room. You are always welcome to sample our fine wines and enjoy the lovely scenery. Open Daily 11am-5pm.
Events. Sarah's Vineyard has it's Harvest Parties every year.
Sarah's Vineyard Wine Club. Sarah’s Vineyard invites you to join our wine club, featuring our hand crafted, limited quantity wines from our Estate and from local Santa Cruz Mountain and Santa Clara Valley vineyards.
Estate Vineyard. Along with the climate and the earth, the character of our estate grapes is influenced by the age of the vines and the clonal selections planted. The original vineyard was planted in 1978 with Chardonnay, supplemented in 1989 with additional plantings of “Proprietary” clones of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.  After purchasing the property in 2001, the Proprietor has planted several additional test plots of Pinot Noir, Viognier and Roussanne. These test plots have proved so successful that in 2006, another 5 acres of Pinot Noir was planted, using a double-secret blend of 115, 667, 777 and “Proprietary” clones. 2 more acres were dedicated to Roussanne, Vionier and Grenache. The Proprietor is very interested in the subtle differences between the various clones of Pinot Noir, and has designed the newer vineyards with combinations of clones that allow detailed investigation of their characteristics. Additional expansion is planned using cuttings from our “Proprietary” 1989 Pinot clones, which express a marvelous earthy, mushroom character.
Local Vineyards. The cool, foggy microclimate of Sarah’s Vineyard is well suited to producing wonderful Pinot Noir and Chardonnay; while the warmer areas nearby, sheltered from the ocean breeze, work well for grapes like Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and Zinfandel. We use locally grown grapes when we don’t grow the grapes ourselves, and we work closely with the growers to insure that the grapes are grown the same way we grow them on our estate. We are just a few hundred yards from the Santa Cruz mountains, so our local vineyards encompass both the Santa Cruz Mountain and Santa Clara Valley appellations. The complexity of the local microclimates and soils lead to large differences in grape flavor expressions over very short distances.
Wine is music from the Vineyard!
