With 15,000 acres of vineyard, the large Alexander Valley appellation lies east of the Dry Creek Valley in Sonoma's northern end. It encompasses the sandy plain of the Russian River, as well as the slopes of the mountains separating Alexander Valley from Napa Valley. Largely sheltered from Pacific breezes, Alexander Valley enjoys a hot climate. The Russian River brings just enough coastal fog into the region each night to temper the heat and give the grapes ample time to develop on the vine. Alexander Valley provides the ideal conditions for our Frei Brothers Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.
