Why go: Beautiful scenery with miles of vineyards over rolling hills in Sonoma County’s Alexander Valley, excellent red and white wines at moderate prices.
Hanna Winery‘s Alexander Valley tasting room is about 15 minutes east of Healdsburg or Geyserville. The structure is nicely elevated to provide great views. Staff is friendly and knows their wine. Walk-ins are welcome, though appointments and unique wine experiences (e.g. wine and cheese pairing) are available with prior reservations.
Hanna also has a tasting room in Santa Rosa at 5353 Occidental Road, Santa Rosa, CA 95401.
