Field Stone winery on the Alexander Valley wine route

Discover the Alexander Valley wine route this Fall

This is one of wine country’s great backroads. The Alexander Valley in this stretch is also known as Highway 128. It travels from just north of the wine country town of Healdsburg all the way to Calistoga in the Napa Valley. Begin your exploration of the Alexander Valley wine route from the town of Healdsburg. Travel north from downtown Healdsburg about six miles and turn right onto Highway 128. In a couple of miles you will come to the Medlock Ames tasting room on the corner. It is a restored retail store and a fun stop for tasting wine. Continue on and you must make a stop at the Jimtown Store. It is funky and a good place to pick up some lunch goodies for a picnic down the road at one of the wineries on the Alexander Valley wine route. Follow the highway as it traverses the beautiful Alexander Valley. There are several wonderful views and, of course, wineries to stop at and explore. We like the Alexander Valley winery, Hanna winery, and our favorite for a lunch stop, the Field Stone winery. We love the fantastic views at Field Stone and we like to picnic here and enjoy the serene area.  The Field Stone winery is the last winery on Highway 128 in the Alexander Valley. Just beyond Field Stone you can continue on to Knights Valley and Calistoga or turn right and head to Santa Rosa. Back tracking is also an alternative. The Alexander Valley is particularly beautiful in the Fall. The colors are spectacular. Discover the Alexander Valley wine route this Fall
