Anaba Wines was founded in 2006 by proprietor John Sweazey when a decades long dream came to fruition. Early inspiration and trips to France in the 1970s helped shape the vision, varietals and vibe for the vineyards and tasting room.
Anaba’s name originates from cool, upward-flowing anabatic winds that soar and swirl through its sustainably-farmed Carneros Estate vineyards. Gifts of nature, these unique air currents make the vineyard more temperate, slow down the ripening process, and allow the grapes to develop more robust flavors and distinctive varietal characteristics.
Anaba Wines became the first winery in Northern California to utilize wind power when it installed a 45-foot wind turbine to harness the anabatic winds. This wind turbine generates electricity for Anaba’s tasting room, wine storage, office operations and irrigation pumps for the two estate vineyards.
The Anaba tasting room is a charming, recently-renovated 100-year-old farmhouse that provides an intimate and unpretentious tasting experience in which to enjoy Anaba’s award-winning wines. Anaba’s limited edition, superior quality blends and single varietal wines include Pinot Noirs, Chardonnays, Rhone-style blends and an excellent selection of dessert wines. Enjoy a simple picnic or a leisurely tasting on the spacious and peaceful patio overlooking Anaba’s fruitful grounds.

We highlight women led businesses on our site because most winery owners and winemakers are men. To earn this tag the winery must be majority women owned or have a female winemaker.
Starting your own business is hard, especially in the wine industry where there are so many uncontrolled variables. Wineries earn this tag if the current owners and operators are also the founders.
Family owned and operated businesses are an important part of the US economy. To earn this tag, a winery has two or more family members involved, and the majority ownership lies within the family.
