Alexander Valley Vineyards

California, the most populous state of the United States, located on the Pacific coast of North America is bordered by Oregon, Nevada, Arizona and Mexico. The four largest cities are Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose and San Francisco. California is also the home of and wine producing regions such as Santa Barbara and Northern California's Wine Country.
Alexander Valley Vineyards is situated in northern Sonoma County, just 75 miles north of San Francisco, 6 miles from the sleepy town of Healdsburg and 16 miles from Calistoga in the Napa Valley. Sonoma County’s Alexander Valley was typically prune orchards and pastures when, in 1962, Maggie and Harry Wetzel purchased a huge portion of a homestead built by Cyrus Alexander, the valley’s nineteenth century namesake.  
Hank Wetzel, oldest son of Maggie and Harry, produced Alexander Valley Vineyard’s first wine in 1975. They produce 100,000 cases yearly, ten varietal wines and proprietary blends. Seventy-five percent of their production is red wine. Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon comprise over one-third of total production. Other varietals contain Zinfandel, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Viognier, Sangiovese and Cabernet Franc.

A family-owned winery in the gorgeous Alexander Valley, they offer ideal settings for private events. Some of their featured recipes include Cilantro Pesto Prawns, Hot Italian Sausage Sandwich, Latin Pork and Hominy Stew and Sin Zin Flank Steak. Their wine club features a two bottle shipment to your home or office of AVV wines every month and 10 percent discount plus shipping, charged monthly.

Alexander Valley Vineyards are one of the best in the wine business and are aware that quality is not accidental but by high intention and perseverance and are devoted to follow it on any backgrounds.
