Medlock Ames is an estate fine wine producer located in Alexander Valley, Sonoma County, California. Started in 1998 by friends Chris James and Ames Morison, they consider their commitment to quality, through mindful and organic farming, to be one of their greatest assets. With Ames at the helm as the winemaker, the vineyards are farmed organically with no insecticides, chemical fertilizers or herbicides. Solar power provides the energy needed to run. Only 55 of Medlock Ames’ 338 acres are farmed; the majority of land has been deliberately left in a natural state – leaving much of their acreage for oaks and wildflowers, not vines.
We had the most lovely time pairing their wines with thoughtfully selected cheeses. Our hostess, Isabella, was gracious, knowledgable, and incredibly friendly. The setting is very relaxed and stylish. Definitely recommend.
Well worth the drive to spend a few hours tasting their wine; reds, whites and a rose. Pack a picnic lunch and meet friends here for an enjoyable afternoon. Check their website for live music and other events.
