Seated Reserve Wine Tasting on 9/28/19 10:00 AM

Great wines, but we had an issue with our tasting experience. We arrived a few minutes early and were playing with their dogs. One of the dogs was carrying a wine bung and wanted to play fetch. I was doing this and someone from the tasting room came out and started yelling at me to stop like I was the problem. I thought they were kidding, but he was quite serious. Totally put us off.

We thoroughly enjoyed our vineyard hike and cave tour at Alexander Valley Vineyards. Tim was a wealth of information about the history and present day workings of the winery and provided us with several different wines for tasting. We enjoyed a delicious picnic lunch with another glass of our choice of their award winning wines. We highly recommend a visit to this beautiful vineyard!

The seated tasting was outside and it was too hot for my wife. Our guide was very nice, knowledgeable and patient. The barrel cave tour was nice and cool, and tasting the difference between American and French oak with the same wine was informative. It was great to see new barrels being delivered as the winery team was preparing for harvest and crush.

We visited for a Vineyard Hike at Alexander Valley Vineyards. It was one of the most incredible vineyard tours we have ever taken. There is so much history on the property made even better when sipping on a wonderful glass of wine. We enjoyed our tour and loved our picnic lunch afterwards.

I love AVV! It was my second time there and just as great as the first. My whole group loved this place. I’m not sure if it is because the tasting and tour are free but everyone there is extra warm, helpful, friendly, and knows their wines well (which are so good I always leave with a few bottles even on a graduate student budget)!! Pamela was wonderful and so engaged with us, thanks Pamela!!

We had an excellent walk with Thomas as our host. We learned about the history of the vineyard, Sonoma & Cyrus Alexander. It was fun and educational to sip each wine as we looked at the grapes in the vineyard. The sandwiches provided were excellent and obviously the wine was too. They did everything they could to accommodate my family including vegetarians & a non-drinker.
