Richard and Thekla Sanford, the winery’s founders, were our first clients. Our partnership with them inspired everyone involved to higher levels of environmental sensitivity and beauty. The Sanfords’ deep connections to the land shaped our approach to the design.

Whether deciding on the exact placement of a Sycamore tree, to placing native shrubs to look as though they sprang up on their own, this collaboration produced a landscape that looks as if it had been designed by nature. The Sanfords now produce organically grown and produced wines under the Alma Rosa label.
