Alexander Valley – Russian River Water and Sonoma County Sun Equal Fantastic Wine

In the north of Sonoma County Wine Country lies a quiet valley that is home to some of the world’s finest wine.  The Alexander Valley stretches north from Healdsburg to Cloverdale.  The Russian River flows through its fertile fields lined with row upon row of some of the highest quality wine grapes in the world.  In the early morning the fog from the river covers the grapes in a blanket; protecting them from the hot sun.  This gives the grapes time to reach the peak of perfection before they are harvested and transformed into award-winning wine.  The area is famed for its excellent Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, although there are many other varietals that are grown as well.

Clos Du Bois and Ernest and Julio Gallo have helped to make the Alexander Valley better known.  However, it still retains a quiet, undiscovered feeling to it and you will not have to fight crowds at the winery tasting rooms.   Most of the wineries are open to the public and it would be easy (and delightful) to wile away a Saturday afternoon tasting the wonderful wine of the Alexander Valley!
