Alexander Valley Vineyards is a family-owned and operated winery located in the heart of Sonoma’s Alexander Valley, on the historic site originally settled in the 1840s by valley namesake, Cyrus Alexander. With vineyards that stretch from the banks of the Russian River to the Mayacamas hillsides, the Wetzel Family continues the tradition of family farming on the property. Their wines reflect the unique character of the region and they are known for elegant Cabernet Sauvignon, a trio of iconic Zinfandels – Sin Zin, Temptation & Redemption, luscious Chardonnay, rich Merlot and their flagship, CYRUS – the first growth of Sonoma. AVV’s vineyard practices were initially recognized by the California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance in March 2006 and in 2010 they were recognized as a certified “Sonoma Green Business”.
Really a must stop if you love great wines and nice people and a great view of the valley. The variety of wines with such high quality is amazing. Chard, Pinot noir, Cabs, and even a great Cabernet Franc!
