Let us take you to Alexander Valley from San Francisco. This area is the perfect mixture of charm, sophistication, and down home hospitality. From San Francisco, Alexander Valley is only 90 minutes north off highway 101. From the Golden Gate Bridge to Healdsburg, enjoy a scenic drive as you gaze at the area’s rolling hillsides and mountain ridges.
With more than 40 wineries to choose from, you’re guaranteed to find exactly what suits your palate. Although Alexander Valley is known for its world-famous Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, the area’s gravelly loam soils also boast Zinfandel and Rhone varieties, including the Syrah.
Named after pioneer Cyrus Alexander, the valley stretches 22 miles along the Russian River from Cloverdale to Healdsburg. Just 40 years ago, the valley was known for its succulent prunes and walnuts. Today, you will find them growing alongside flavorful, rich Chardonnays. Alexander Valley boasts wines perfect for any wine connoisseur. We’ll take you to the warmer northern end of the valley and you can enjoy a Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Merlot, French Syrah, or Italian Sangiovese.
Alexander Valley offers a “Taste Alexander Valley” event each year. Over 30 wineries participate in this weekend event in May. If you are visiting during this time, travel with us between each winery and enjoy wine and food pairings, live entertainment, and special wine discounts.
