4 Diamonds in the Alexander Vally, California wine region
A Visit to Alexander Valley...
If you are hanging out in the town of Santa Rosa or Windsor or visiting San Francisco you might think about taking a day trip to check out a few wineries in Sonoma County. This is an easy drive along Highway 101 and perhaps one of the most beautiful roads in California wine country. The drive is about 50 miles north for San Francisco to Sonoma County’s wine destination town of Healdsburg. From Santa Rosa it's about 12 miles. From Windsor we travel on highway 128 towards Healdsburg. Highway 128 travels through two famous wine appellations, the Knight’s Valley AVA and the Alexander Valley AVA. As you enter the Alexander Valley stretch, about 14 miles, both sides of the highway are lined with beautiful vineyards, and there are several wineries to visit along the Alexander Valley Highway.
We visited 4 wineries. As you watch the videos you will get a sense of our experiences.
The first was the reservation only Lancaster Estate:
The visit was well worth the $20.00 per person fee. The Estate was awesome. The tour we took had only 2 other couples with and the wines were exceptional. We tasted ranges of wine from $50.00 to $100.00. This is a must visit!
