Since 1975, the Wetzel family has produced handcrafted estate grown and bottled wines with distinctive varietal character. Acclaimed for our elegant Cabernet Sauvignon, crisp Chardonnay, the iconic Sin Zin and CYRUS - The First Growth of Sonoma, AVV has brought recognition to the Alexander Valley appellation.

We had an early morning appointment for 8 people. We were cheerfully greeted, and enjoyed a tasting of many of the AVV wines. Each couple chose to share one estate tasting and one reserve tasting, and our host did a great job of pairing the wines together to give us a good contrast of the different varieties. The wine was reasonably priced, and there were lots of varieties to choose from.

Loved being in a place that didn’t feel like it was set up to woo you. Alexander Valley knows their history and proudly shows and shares it, but isn’t pretentious. Going in to the *working* caves and seeing their evolution as they were built was really interesting, getting to do side by side French and American oak barrel tastings was super educational. One of our fave tours.

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!
