Wines of the Alexander Valley are unique in both taste and origin story.
Perhaps you've heard the story of Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Wine.
Every day, Alexander would go into his yard and pluck some grapes. He would bring the grapes home and make them into wine. But every time he tasted his wine he realized something: his wine tasted terrible!
But then one day, he discovered a valley ... a valley filled with grapes! He plucked the grapes and filled a bucket with them, and he used them to make wine.
The wine was delcicious! Brilliant, some might say! Full of bright fruit and elegant with smooth tannins. After drinking a glass, he rushed to his linen closet and stitched together a flag. He grabbed the flag and put in the valley, deeming it Alexander Valley.
Or so, that's how the story goes. Since then, many wines have come from Alexander Valley, including this 2009 Denier-Handal Vineyard Zinfandel, so go ahead and buy some. Then you can experience the Terrific, Wonderful, Not Bad, Very Good Wine yourself.
