Do you have a passion for wines that reflect more of a Bordeaux style – smooth, well-structured wines that beautifully compliment food? Wines where the micro-climates of the region play a more predominant role in the end result? A wine that reveals 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?
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.
Adastra is an organic winery 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. In our trip, my wife and I only joined two wine clubs, and Adastra 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.
Not only is Adelaida wine consistently wonderful, 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 stand out!
Great place to hang, pet friend, wonderful atmosphere.. beautiful day.. ultra relaxing..and for just $10 you felt like you had experienced a spa.
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.

Bruce Ahnfeldt moved to the Napa Valley in the mid 1980’s. While Ahnfeldt Wines did not begin until 2002, the Ahnfeldts developed and planted their first Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard in 1985. Grapes from the Ahnfeldt vineyards have been sold to BV (Bealieu), Markham, Sterling, Kendal Jackson and Hagafen wineries. These mature vineyards produce such fine quality grapes, that they are now used in their wines.
