This tour is a great introduction to learning about wine caves and what wine tastes like before it is properly aged. A free tour as well!

Thanks for the kind words, while every glass of our wine shares our story, there is nothing like seeing it in person, thank you for your visit, and I hope you are able to come again sometime.

AVV is one of the few vineyards to still offer free tastings to their customers. They have some nice wines and while you are sipping you can read about Cyrus Alexander and the history of the Alexander Valley. The employees are knowledgeable and fun.
