Located in the remote ridge tops of the West Sonoma Coast, Alma Fria produces elegant Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in a region where nature asserts more influence than man. We founded Alma Fria in 2012, after discovering a special vineyard amongst the coastal redwoods, near the villages of Annapolis and Sea Ranch, and using those vines to produce our inaugural wine.
Most mornings, as we traverse the pacific coast, past the river estuaries, the tidal zones and the sheering, ocean-side cliffs, we witness the enormous level of biodiversity at the edge of the land and the sea. Coveys of quail scatter, sea otters frolic, and osprey are on patrol, all under the protective gauze of rolling sea mist and blankets of fog. Life is full, wild, and free.
It is this feeling, this connection with the natural systems around us, that we try to channel in Alma Fria wines.
