Stopped by here for a tasting on Father's Day, which also happened to be my hubby's 40th birthday. Very pleased to find that our Signature Visa gave us a complimentary reserve tasting and as luck would have it we were hosted by the tasting room manager, Shirley. Love Shirley! She had great stories and was very knowledgeable. She obviously loves what she does. She offered to take us into the caves and we happily accepted. What a treat! We left with some great wine and cool memories. Thanks, Shirley and AVV!

“If you like your wine tasting”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2011

mixed with a helping of politics, this is the place for you. Knew I should have turned around when I walked in the door and hear the pourer expounding on how much better everything would be if women ran the world and the evils of war. Went downhill from there. Luckily, there are many other wines and wineries in the valley to enjoy.

“Reasonable, Tasty Wines”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2009

We had time for one more winery stop before heading back to Sonoma and we chose Alexander Valley Vineyards for no particular reason. What a great place to happen upon. Their wines are very reasonably priced and we liked more than a few of them. The staff in the tasting room was friendly and kind and knowledgeable. We ended up ordering 18 bottles to be sent home!

“Great wines & staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2009

We really enjoyed this winery. The wines are good and the prices are reasonable. We are wine club members & look forward to each shipment and the next time we can return. Hopefully this September. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Check them out!
