Great winemakers know... the truth is in the location.

Great winemakers, like great chefs, know that outstanding results only come from exceptional ingredients. For years we've been attracting the business of some of California's finest winemakers. They know that our site will make a wine with unique character. They know the fruit will not be over-cropped, sunburned or moldy. The berries will be small, the fruit clean and cold on delivery.

They choose us because we specialize in low-yields of top quality fruit, producing only about two to two-and-a-half pounds per vine.

Few vineyards pay attention to detail like Alder Springs. Our ranch supplies housing to all its employees so the crew is the same, year after year. They know the place and practices and therefore do meticulous work.

Contact us to book a guided appointment of the vineyard and find out for yourself what other great winemakers know. Email us or call (707) 984-8970.
