Mendo Blendo – Saracina Vineyards’ Alex MacGregor, Ep. 45

For this episode of Sip Sip Hooray! we are in Hopland in Mendocino County at the beautiful, picturesque winery, Saracina Vineyards.

Tucked into the rolling hills, the mantra at this wine ranch is biodiversity and sustainability. Since its founding by John Fetzer and Patty Rock in 2001, Saracina has been on the leading edge of a holistic approach to grape growing and winemaking. Vineyards share the landscape with majestic 140 year old olive trees, baby goats and alpacas, honey bees, orchards and chicken.

Saracina may be best known for wine, but the ranch also produces honey and olive oil. Now owned by Taub Family Selections, Saracina is committed to raising the bar through its dedication to diversity in every aspect.

Winemaker Alex MacGregor is one of those legendary Mendocino characters and you’ll love getting to know him. So grab a glass and enjoy our conversation.

Saracina Vineyards is open daily. Reservations can be made online here.
