Alma Rosa Winery & Vineyards

Alma Rosa Winery & Vineyards enjoys a long legacy in the Sta. Rita Hills.  They were founded in 2005 by Sta. Rita Hills pioneer winegrowers Thekla and Richard Sanford.  The Spanish name was chosen as a tribute to the place and the people behind the wines, alma meaning soul and rosa referring to the original California Rancho Santa Rosa land grant, the location of our Rancho El Jabalí Vineyard.

Anne Amie Vineyards

  Anne Amie Vineyards

The concept of Anne Amie Vineyards began in 1999, when Dr. Robert Pamplin, bought the historically noted Chateau Benoit Winery.  He wanted to create an incredible Pinot Noir.  Accordingly, he tasked with winemaker Thomas Houseman and winegrower Jason Tosch with doing just that and they did.  Anne Amie now has Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc and they set the standard for other Oregon wineries.  They are  Salmon Safe, LIVE certified and a part of the Yamhill-Carlton AVA, and the Chehalem Mountains Winegrowers.
