Alexander Valley

ITALO MAP Frame 540X700 Located at the northern end of Sonoma County, just north of Healdsburg, the Alexander Valley is 22 miles long and varies in width from two to seven miles. On the hillsides to the east and west, and adjacent to the beautiful Russian River winding along the valley floor, the valley is home to a diversity of microclimates that support the growth of many wine grape varieties including Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and many more.

 

Our Alexander Valley Vineyards

Italo's Vineyard | 8 acres of Zinfandel, Carignane, & Petite Sirah

This Alexander Valley Zinfandel vineyard was owned and planted by my Father Gino and Uncle Italo in the early 1930's, just after the repeal of Prohibition. They started a little winery that unfortunately didn't fare well during the Depression. My father sold out to my Uncle Italo and went to work for Monte Bello Wine Company in San Francisco, and in the 1940s, bought vineyards in Dry Creek Valley. My Uncle continued to live on the property and was a farmer all his life. When my cousins asked me to crush the grapes from Italo's Vineyard in 2006, I was thrilled with the prospect and decided it was fitting to name the wine after my Uncle Italo.
