Alfaro Family Vineyards & Winery
Welcome to Alfaro Family Vineyards & Winery. After a satisfying career as the founders of a restaurant and the wholesale baking company known under their own name - Alfaro's Micro Bakery - Richard Alfaro and his wife Mary Kay shifted gears in 1997, acquiring an aging 75 acre apple farm south of Santa Cruz in Corralitos, California, which they subsequently transformed into Alfaro Family Vineyards & Winery. With 56 acres currently under vine, the most-recently planted 8 acres was CCOF Certified Organic in 2010.
The hillside vineyards are located less than 4 miles from the cooling influence of the Monterey Bay in the southern end of the Santa Cruz Mountains appellation. The Alfaro Family Vineyards wine label, based on an original painting by noted Santa Cruz artist Laurie Zeszut features the entire Alfaro Family in a harvest scene. Indoor and outdoor granite tasting bars with two adjacent picnicking areas overlooking the vines. Always child and dog friendly! Enjoy tasting wines in our intimate tasting room or bring a picnic and take in the view from our deck.
