Rita Hills winegrowing pioneer and founder of Alma Rosa Winery, Richard Sanford, in blending a very unique barrel of wine.
For the first time in his 44-year winemaking history, Richard will take your group through the aging, blending, and bottling process, choosing your favorites to blend into an individual barrel. Your barrel will then mature through their traditional aging process. You will come back to the winery after the aging process is complete to join Richard during the bottling phase and witness the wine move from barrel to bottle. In the end you will have 25 cases of your special blend to enjoy! Estimated Value: $18,500 Donated by: Bacara Resort & Spa; Thekla and Richard Sanford, Alma Rosa Winery

Richard Sanford - Founder and Production Manager
Richard Sanford - Founder and Production Manager Growing up in the early 1940's along the southern California coast Richard developed a love for the ocean, nature, and wide open spaces. His first job driving a tractor through the Palos Verdes bean fields provided an early introduction to agriculture and established a firm connection to the cycles of nature and the responsibility associated with being a good steward of the land. During his college years at UC Santa Barbara and UC Berkeley Richard developed a passion for flying, sailing and yacht racing. Upon graduation he was drafted into the military and became a naval officer serving in Viet Nam from 1965 to 1968. The Viet Nam tours introduced him to the study of eastern philosophy and left him with a desire to work in a peaceful, natural environment when he returned home. In 1976 Richard met his future wife Thekla Brumder, and in 1981 the two of them started Sanford Winery. As Richard explains, "My wife Thekla and I are focusing on what's most important to us; organic grape growing and sustainable business practices." Richard was founding chairman of the Sta. Rita Hills Wine Growers Alliance, the group responsible for obtaining formal designation of the Sta. Richard and his wife Thekla live in the Santa Ynez Valley at Rancho El Jabalí. Their daughter Blakeney was born in 1979. Richard was preparing for his first vintage of Sanford & Benedict wines. Managed by Jeff Newton and supervised by Martin Hernandez (the ranch foreman who has worked with Richard Sanford for more than 30 years), the staff responsible for maintaining the El Jabalí and La Encantada vineyards are an integral part of the Alma Rosa Winery & Vineyards family.
