SanfordRancho La Rinconada, Buellton

When they decided to buy Rancho Rinconada to build a new winery and vineyard on Santa Rosa Road, long-time Land Trust members Richard and Thekla Sanford volunteered to donate a conservation easement over 105 acres of the oak woodland on their 438-acre property. The dense oak woodland surrounding the vineyard is permanently set aside in a Land Trust easement.
