When we first arrived, Sanford had no record of our booking this tasting, and were quite confused. After persisting, they finally provided us with a tour. The tour was "rushed" due to the pending arrival of a "VIP". The wine was good, the winery is beautiful, and our guide, once he greeted us was fine. It just was not up to the VIP status advertised.

The guys were the best possible hosts, bringing to life the ambiance and the very high standards. Without a shadow of doubt I would recommend to everyone and the next time I'm on the west coast I'll be coming back.

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.
