About Us


Richard Alfaro and his wife Mary Kay enjoy the fruits of their labor.  After a satisfying career as the founders of a restaurant and the wholesale baking company known under their own name, Alfaro's Micro Bakery,  the couple 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.  There are 56 acres currently under vine.

Our estate grown and bottled Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Syrah and unique Gruner Veltliner reflect the unique terrior of the Santa Cruz Mountains appellation.

Our tasting room is located onsite and includes indoor and outdoor tasting bars with picnicking areas overlooking the vines. Enjoy a flight of 6 or more wines, complimentary for our wine club members.  Always child and dog friendly!
