Life is precious, and you deserve to enjoy every moment, every celebration, every gathering with people you love.

Aphelion Wines by Sakura Winery

Our award-winning Aphelion™ wines are finely structured and well-balanced, and help remind us that we are all together on this journey around the sun.  Aphelion is the point in a planet’s orbit around the sun when it is farthest from the sun.  For everyone on earth, this occurs at the beginning of July each year.

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. Sip and savor!

Hi, we're Jennifer and Tim.

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.

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 wanted to fully and truly embrace 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 random Tuesday.  Whatever the moment, savor it to the fullest.  Cheers!
