It was a great experience. Our tour of the caves was very nice. Wish we could have gone further into the caves. We brought our son for part of his College graduation trip and it was very enjoyable. He rated it as one of his top family vacations.

Denise and John, in the tasting room, were welcoming and made us there was no pressure to buy their wine (although of course, that would be their wish). We particularly enjoyed John's tour; he was knowledgeable and enjoyed sharing it with us. The history is interesting. We would definitely recommend this winery.

This is a beautiful vineyard with fantastic wine and a great staff. My wife and I enjoyed the reserve tasting with a tour of their wine cave and it was a great way to spend a few hours of our day. We learned a lot about the history of the vineyard as well as all of the intricacies that go into making a bottle of wine. We highly recommend making this one of your stops in wine country!

We really enjoyed our visit to Alexander Valley Vineyards especially the visit to the caves with the enormous amount of barrels. Very interesting to taste the difference in the same wine aged in American oak and French oak, respectively. Also, very interesting to be that close to the wine production as compated to other vineyards where it is more just a tasting room. Highly recommended to visit!

What a wonderful experience! Very friendly and knowledgeable staff members who were more than willing to answer questions. We were lucky enough to have a grape truck arrive and got to see how the crushing step happens. The cave is very cool, and is literally quite cool on a hot day. Our tour and tasting were both great, and we learned a thing or two in the process. Great for any age group.
