Fodor's Expert Review Alexander Valley Vineyards

Healdsburg Winery

The 1840s homestead of Cyrus Alexander, for whom the valley is named, is the site of this winery known for Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and a trio of Zinfandels, most notably the widely distributed Sin Zin. Tastings here are low-key and breezy; opt for the reserve one to sample the single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon and the Bordeaux blend called Cyrus. Twice-daily free tours take in the winery and caves dug deep into a nearby hillside. Weather permitting, you can take an invigorating vineyard hike (book at least two days ahead) focusing on the land and the winery's history.
