Saintsbury Winery was founded by Richard Ward and David Graves in 1981. Hands on experience in the industry by working together at several Napa wineries. The property where the winery is located was grazing land at the time of their purchase. Besides the estate property, they also own two other vineyards in the Carneros area and in addition source grapes from nearby vintners. Today Pinot noir is really their specialty; they produce a number of different styled Pinots. In addition, they still produce Chardonnay and more recently a cool weather Syrah sourced from neighboring Sonoma County.
