St. Francis of Assisi is the patron saint of animals and ecology. The winery pays tribute to him with a statue in the garden. They pay tribute to him, also, through their own ecological work. St. Francis Winery is certified sustainable. They use solar power, practice water conservation, use integrated pest management, and practice responsible packaging.

St. Francis Winery makes a lovely Viognier with aromas of guava and some surprising acidity. Their Chardonnay is earthy and savory but with a crisp apple tartness. They make a Sonoma cuvee that is a Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Verdot and Merlot. It is deep purple with aromas of oak, black cherry, pepper and anise. Their Meritage is a Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petite Verdot and Merlot. It is oaky and peppery with dark fruit aromas and black licorice notes.

St. Francis Winery is a beautiful property, beautifully and responsibly maintained. It is located at 100 North Pythian Road in Santa Rosa. The tasting room is open from 10am to 5pm daily. www.stfranciswinery.com
