Acacia Winery

I like the small-time charm of the Acacia Winery, and the staff is just super nice. Our wine host, Margaret, was a gem! Super knowledgeable about the wines and so much fun to chat with. In fact, during the course of our tasting, I realized she had served me the last time I had visited! ~

Ackerman Family Vineyards

Ackerman Family Vineyards Cabernet wine label

You will love Ackerman Family Vineyards if you have a passion for wines that reflect more of a Bordeaux style – smooth, well-structured wines that beautifully complement the food.  These are wines where the micro-climates of the region play a more predominant role in the end result.  Ackerman Family wines reveal deep berry flavors resulting from the perfect balance between soils and fruit. Are you looking to add a unique variation to your Cabernet Sauvignon choices?  This is the place!~

Acorn Winery

Acorn Winery is a 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.~ Art work by Wine Artist Agata Zaborowski – Agata Art Gallery

Adastra Wines

Adastra Winery is organic with a great history, and Chris is happy to walk you through it. He'll introduce you to the property -- which he and his wife live off of -- and the business as well. The property is wonderful, and you can tell a lot of love has built the place up. He'll share with you the old barn and his herb garden. You'll become familiar with the origins of the name and finally, with the wines themselves while sitting around his dining room table. The reds are excellent, absolutely top-notch. On our trip, my wife and I only joined two wine clubs, and Adastra Winery is one of them. The tasting and tour can be expensive, $25 per person but that fee is waived if you join the wine club. Honestly, even if you don't join the club, it's worth the fee for the experience.~ Artwork by Wine Artist Agata Zaborowski – Agata Art Gallery 

Adelaida Vineyards

Not only is Adelaida Vineyards' wine consistently wonderful, but EVERYONE who walks into their inviting tasting room is treated with superior customer service. The staff is extremely knowledgeable about varietals, flavors (and pairings), and the behind-the-scenes skill that goes into making their wines is outstanding!

Adrian Fog Winery

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.
