2022 California State Fair Commercial Wine Competition Awards:

Your to-do list can wait.

This moment can’t.

We understand that between work, family and trying to get dinner on the table, you barely have a free moment. Time flies by and you worry you’re missing out on important moments. 
At Sakura Winery, we’re giving you permission to hit pause and pour a great-tasting glass of wine.  We’re a small family vineyard and winery located in Livermore, CA. We grow Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes in our vineyard, along with a small amount of Petit Verdot. Sip and savor!

What It Means to Savor the Moment

Hi.  We’re Jennifer and Tim, your “living in the moment” ambassadors if you will.  The inspiration for our brand came from Jennifer’s personal struggles after her mom passed away.  Jennifer learned to feel happiness again but a realization hit her: she hadn’t been fully embracing life. In honor of her mom, Jennifer vowed to live in the moment. Little moments. Big moments. And, every moment in between.

We chose the name “Sakura,” which means cherry blossoms in Japanese, for our vineyard and winery. The ephemeral nature and fleeting beauty of the sakura remind us to embrace life and appreciate each moment.

So, pour a glass of Sakura wine to celebrate a special occasion or a random Tuesday. Whatever the moment, savor it to the fullest. Cheers!
