Story

Anaba [anna-ba] Wines, named for the anabatic winds that soar through its vineyards, creates classic, elegant wines borne by the wind. The 16-acre estate sits in the western part of Los Carneros AVA where cool Pacific breezes flow up its gently sloping vineyards, slowing down the ripening process and allowing the grapes to develop robust flavors and distinctive varietal characteristics.

After Founder John Sweazey tried his hand at winemaking and studied production techniques in France, he and his wife Kathleen were drawn to the quality of Los Carneros’s Burgundian and Rhône grape varieties and the relaxed, friendly nature of Sonoma County’s farming community.

Their first vintage of Anaba wines all received awards for excellence at the 2009 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. With each subsequent vintage, Anaba Wines have received recognition and, today, the talented duo of Ross Cobb and Katy Wilson oversee the winemaking program. Both bring a wealth of experience with cool climate varietals. Their shared attention to detail, devotion to the land, and passion for producing elegant Pinot Noir is resulting in some of the finest wines from Sonoma.

While employing sustainable practices in the vineyard, Anaba continues its green initiatives by utilizing the power of the wind. In fact in late 2009, the winery began harnessing it with the installation of a 45-foot Skystream 3.7 wind turbine, making Anaba the first winery in Northern California to use wind energy in the production of wine. The turbine generates enough power to run many things, including the winery’s renovated century-old farmhouse, which now serves as a charming tasting room.

Guests are welcome to sample Anaba’s exceptional wines there or seated outside on a patio overlooking the rolling vineyard. They will enjoy beautiful offerings of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Rhône varietals, and Rhône-style blends—followed by a choice of three delectable dessert wines that each define John and Kathleen’s dream.
