Saracina is a family-owned, Certified California Sustainable (“CSWA”) winery and vineyard located along the Upper Russian River in northern California’s wine country. Our 250-acre ranch, located outside the small town of Hopland, is home to sustainably farmed vineyards, 120-year-old olive orchards, vegetable gardens, bee hives, and all manner of bird and wild animal life.
Our handcrafted, limited-production Saracina and Atrea wines reflect a conscious sense of this beautiful place in Mendocino County where we are fortunate to live and work.
Driving into Saracina, visitors are captivated by the vast hillside and valley floor vineyards and the charming mix of rustic and modern structures, many of which have been constructed using reclaimed materials from the ranch.
Founded by husband and wife team John Fetzer and Patty Rock in 2001, Saracina has always been defined by a strong sense of family. In 2018, Marc Taub took on stewardship of Saracina, upholding the spirit of family ownership that has defined this iconic Mendocino winery since inception.
The third generation of his family immersed in the world of wine, Marc operates two highly-regarded import companies representing wines from top appellations around the globe. Over the last six years, he has also been cultivating a small portfolio of domestic wines from Napa, Sonoma and Mendocino.
Together with winemaker Alex MacGregor and the team at the beautiful Saracina Ranch, Marc and his family are thrilled to take on leadership of the estate and carry on the values and quality that have defined Saracina since the beginning.
