What we love about Alexander Valley Ranch

This emblematic vineyard house is nestled into the grapes of Alexander Valley, one of the most spectacular locales in all of Sonoma County. Located at the end of a private road just north of Sonoma, Alexander Valley Ranch is the perfect setting for those looking to explore the extraordinary wines, world-class restaurants and idyllic natural beauty of this region. Sweeping views of Cabernet grapes and the majestic Mayacama mountains grace you from every corner of this peaceful retreat; set on a slight knoll, you are above the valley floor and are completely surrounded by gardens, fruit orchards and vineyards for as far as the eye can see. Built in a modern farmhouse style, Alexander Valley Ranch invites you to get cozy in its sun soaked great room, designed with high ceilings, an intimate sofa lounge,, along with a dining area accompanied by a large farmer’s wood table. Along the back of the house is a spacious, open-plan kitchen. Outfitted with modern Viking appliances, stone countertops and bar accessories, you can either use this space to have your own gourmet cooking gathering, r opt to have a personal chef do all of your cooking for you - sit back and focus on your wine tasting as they gather the best meat and produce from the local markets to come back and prepare a delicious meal for your group.

The sleeping quarters at Alexander Valley Ranch are just as welcoming as common rooms. On the ground floor you will find two of the guest bedrooms – the master suite boasts a king bed, marble and glass bathroom, plus panoramic views of the mountains and vineyards, while the second guest room has a queen bed and an adjacent bathroom with a claw-footed bathtub. Upstairs is an expansive loft or playroom that overlooks the living area and offers two day beds for extra accommodation. Double doors open up the main house to the expansive outdoor patio and pool area, where across the way is the one bedroom guest house. Styled with country French furnishings, the guest house enjoys a media room, bathroom and sauna on the ground floor with a queen bedroom and charming kitchen overlooking the vineyards upstairs. The multi-tiered back area allows you to enjoy this villa’s quintessential California setting in the refreshing swimming pool, on a lounge chair under the sun or gathered round the alfresco dining table under the shade of an ancient oak.

Good to Know

Alexander Valley Ranch is a dream home-away-from-home for adults, teens and children alike. On the far side of the yard away from the pool area you’ll discover a rustic Bocce ball court and a ping pong table, surrounded by pear and fig trees and a vegetable and herb garden. The on-property vineyards are just steps away, an idyllic spot to relax and enjoy a glass of wine as you watch the sunset or the full moon rise up over the mountains. Further up the path is a bit of whimsy for all ages — a raised canvas tent! Adults will cherish this spot for its peacefulness: read, nap, do yoga or simply daydream; for children it’s the perfect playhouse, fort or hideout where they can spend hours creating a world of their own. Spread out over almost 2,000 private square feet, Alexander Valley Ranch is one of our favorite destinations to settle in and experience the breathtaking landscape of this region in complete seclusion.

Eat, Drink & Play

Alexander Valley Ranch is ideally located to take advantage of all that Sonoma and Napa Counties have to offer. The Alexander Valley region is filled with top wineries and local charm: neighbors with the Stonestreet Winery, Medlock Ames Tasting Room and the historically quirky Jimtown store, you can effortlessly stroll for a morning coffee, a few artisan grocery items or a casual wine pairing from the front door of your villa. A short drive takes you to Healdsburg with its charming stores, and world class restaurants. Consider a stop in Geyserville at the new Francis Ford Coppola Winery + Restaurant where the famous director’s collection of his movie memorabilia is on display. Then play a game of bocce in the vineyards before you sit on the restaurant patio enjoying a special meal. Other nearby wineries include Jordon, Stryker, Robert Hunter, Murphy-Good, Chalk Hill and Silver Oak, with favorite restaurants including Scopa, Par Take, Barndiva, Madrona Manor, Dry Creek Kitchen and Chalkboard.
