Located at the northern end of Sonoma County, the Alexander Valley AVA stretches 22 miles from Healdsburg north to Cloverdale, following the meandering course of the Russian River. Its sometimes narrow valley floor is flanked by undulating hillsides rising up to 2,000 feet in elevation. Along its heavily graveled benchlands and foothills lie some of California s supreme Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards, which benefit from the region s warm daytime temperatures, marine-cooled evenings and well-drained, volcanic hillside soils.
