  • Introduction

    The Sequoia View Bed and Breakfast is located in Sanger, CA, on a 20-acre vineyard estate, alongside the Cedar View Winery.

    The bed and breakfast's namesake originates from the expansive panoramic views of the Sequoia and King Canyon National Parks.

    Sequoia View offers three guest suites, each with a private entrance and private bath. Two of the guestrooms are located in the estate's Vineyard Guesthouse that is adjacent to the Alicante grape vines. The third suite is located above the tasting room, on the second floor of the Cedar View Winery.

     

    A full breakfast, prepared with local ingredients, homemade breads, fresh squeezed orange juice from our property, and entrees, are available for our guests.

    There are plenty of activities around the area. Our Inn is in close proximity to national parks, trails, rivers, eateries, and wineries, including our own. Enjoy a taste of our handcrafted wines in the tasting room. We produce Grenache, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and unique wines from our Alicante Bouschet vines.

    Hosts Jim and Debbie Van Haun welcome you to the heart of "The Fruit Basket of the World," where the summer months bring a wonderful bounty of fresh tree fruits, grapes and vegetables.

  • Winery

    Completed in spring 2003, Cedar View’s winery building houses not only the winery facility, but the tasting room and  “Winemakers Suite”, an exclusive suite on the second floor. The winery is truly “boutique”, producing small handcrafted quantities of premium wines. All winemaking activities are completed on site including crushing, fermentation, pressing, aging, blending and bottling. All wine tasting is complimentary for guests of the Bed and Breakfast. Please visit our website for information on wine tasting for the public.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Our flagship wine, Alicante Bouschet, is a Rhone style grape that is steeped in history and grown on-site. Alicante was the number one wine grape in California before prohibition and is unique because of its dark juice. Only 900 acres remain today in California. Cedar View also produces Zinfandel, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Viognier and others. The tasting room where all of the wines can be enjoyed is reminiscent of Tuscany. Local artwork, cheeses, olive oils and clothing are also featured.
