<p>Richard Alfaro and and his wife Mary Kay  (a certified sommelier) enjoy the fruits of their labor. After a satisfying career as the founders of a restaurant and the wholesale baking company known under their own name - <strong>Alfaro's Micro Bakery</strong> - the couple shifted gears in 1997, acquiring an aging 75 acre apple farm south of Santa Cruz in Corralitos, California, which they subsequently transformed into Alfaro Family Vineyards & Winery.  With 56 acres currently under vine, the most-recently planted 8 acres was CCOF Certified Organic in 2010.</p>
<p>The hillside vineyards are located less than 4 miles from the cooling influence of the Monterey Bay in the southern end of the Santa Cruz Mountains appellation.</p>
<p>The Alfaro Family Vineyards wine label, based on an original painting by noted Santa Cruz artist<br /><a href="; target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Laurie Zeszut</a> features the entire Alfaro Family in a harvest scene.                                         <br />
