Since the early 1900’s the Rafanelli family has been growing grapes and making wine in the Dry Creek Valley. Four generations later they are still keeping with the tradition, growing premium grapes and producing world class wines. The winery is small, and being family owned and operated, production is limited, with the focus on quality not quantity! The family prides themselves on producing consistently exceptional wines year in and year out, specializing in some of the finest Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot.

Small family winery in Healdsburg, appointment only. We were there for about 1.5 hours talking and tasting with the owners, who were super-friendly. Their wine is very good.

Adler Fels Winery is nestled 1,500 feet above Sonoma Valley in the picturesque Mayacamas Mountains in Northern California. The mountaintop location commands a panoramic view of the Valley of the Moon and beyond to California’s dramatic coastline. The winery features state-of-the-art fermentation tanks and storage for 700 wine barrels. Adler Fels also operates a modern wine production and bottling facility in Santa Rosa, California. Unfortunately, Adler Fels facilities are not open to the public. Trade and press visits may be made by appointment.

They have a decent sized lounge area with a fireplace (yay!) and snacks. They are by some pathways, and when we were there they were running schemes to get the dog-walkers into the tasting room. I think it's a great idea. Grab a glass (or two) of wine - walk your dog to walk it off and drive home!Alderbrook winery is a must stop heading to headsburg! The site is amazing wine is fantastic! And they have fantastic cooking items using the wine! The Zinfandel balsamic is insane on caprese! Must get! Staff is fantastic and Jamie does a great job educating and amusing!

Stewart Dorman is very responsive to phone calls for tasting appointments, which is not always the norm in the winery world. Once there, you taste in a large warehouse surrounded by barrels. I personally enjoy being so close to the production. If you want to really have a personal, intimate tasting experience and don't want to do be lost among the usual wine country tourists, not to mention tasting something that you'll never find in any store, as distribution is essentially the winery plus several restaurants, then you'll want to make it here.

Alderbrook's tasting room is as comfortable as a Healdsburg bed and breakfast. There is no pretense here, only great wines informally presented in a fun and friendly atmosphere. This is one stop on your Sonoma wine tasting adventure where you'll want to linger.

The Amapola Creek story began in 2001 when Richard and Alis Arrowood discovered a very special place on the western slope of the Mayacamas Mountains—those magnificent mountains that rise between and separate the Sonoma and Napa valleys. From the first moment we set foot on the 100-acre ranch that the Arrowoods now call home. It was almost as if we had known and loved the place in anoter lifetime. There is, in fact, a deep connection to the past here. The red-brown volcanic soils reveal the mountain’s fiery history, and traces remain of the old stagecoach road that once ran through the property. Stone walls still stand where Chinese immigrants built them more than a century ago.
