About the Santa Rita Hills AVA
Although the first vineyard in our region, Sanford, and Benedict, was planted in 1971, it was not until 1997 that Wes Hagen and his group of merry marauders could be seen tromping through the hills of our valley taking soil samples, studying elevation levels and compiling data on degree days. Spearheaded by Richard Sanford, Bryan Babcock, Rick Longoria and other local SRH pioneers, the Alliance spent time studying maps, discussing boundaries and gathering data to submit an AVA Petition in late 1997 with AVA status granted in 2001. With a total area of 30,720 acres, the Sta. Rita Hills AVA is home to over 59 vineyards, totaling 2,700 hundred acres planted to Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and 18 other cool climate wine grape varieties.
