Saracina is a 600-acre bio-diverse property (300 acres in vineyards) encompassing three ranches in Hopland. The main ranch is home to Saracina Vineyards, a small-production, state-of-the-art, California Certified Organic (CCOF) winery and the first wine caves in Mendocino County, carved out of solid rock over a two-year period.
Reminiscent of the rural character of Napa Valley 25 years ago, the ranches are populated with sheep and goats roaming the hillsides, groves of 100-year-old olive trees, pomegranate orchards, bamboo gardens, hiking trails, a wild azalea canyon, organic vegetable gardens, and four ponds that attract herons, Canadian geese and myriad animal life.
The owners are committed to preservation of the land and the rivers, including the Russian River which runs through one of the ranches, rather than clear-cutting every available acre for vineyards.
There is a large grassy area with lounge chairs perfect for visitors with canine companions. Management provides water bowls and pick-up bags.
Please check winery website for days and hours of operation.
