Saracina Vineyards: Learn About Mendocino Wine (VIRTUAL WINE TASTING)
Mendocino Wine Tasting with Winemaker Alex MacGregor
Travel virtually to Mendocino, CA with Alex MacGregor, winemaker for Saracina Vineyards.
Family owned, Certified California Sustainable (“CSWA”) winery and vineyard located along the Upper Russian River in northern California’s wine country.
Saracina Vineyards is truly a hidden gem; this 250-acre ranch includes a winery and sustainably farmed vineyards, and is home to 140-year-old olive trees, vegetable gardens, beehives, alpacas, wild boar, and more.
Alex has been with the winery since its inception in 2001, and makes beautifully balanced wines that express the Mendocino terroir with exquisite transparency, earning him a reputation as one of Mendocino’s top talents.
Originally founded by husband and wife team John Fetzer and Patty Rock, it was purchased in 2018 by Marc Taub (owner of Taub Family Selections), upholding the spirit of family ownership that has always defined this iconic Mendocino County winery.
“Mendocino is unique, rugged and refined. It’s a place that draws passionate people. I love coming to the winery every day; putting together a delicious blend, having the opportunity to craft wines from stunning old vines, challenging our incredible crew to reach new heights. Stop by to say hello and taste!”- Alex MacGregor, Saracina Vineyards Winemaker
