Several wineries are getting wine lovers out of the tasting room and into the vineyards. Here are three Alexander Valley vintners now offering hiking adventures through one of Sonoma County’s most beautiful, mountainous wine regions. [Update 1/5/17: More hike dates have been announced for 2017.]
Lace up your hiking boots and experience the ultimate Sonoma County wine country adventure across the breathtaking Jordan Estate, home to Jordan Vineyard & Winery. Your guided journey begins with a continental breakfast at Vista Point, the highest hilltop of this peaceful 1,200-acre ranch, boasting a sweeping panorama of multiple wine regions and mountain ranges—called the “best view in Alexander Valley” by Fodor’s. Covering three miles of hills and valleys, this moderately strenuous hike will pass through natural wildlife habitat, sustainably farmed vineyards, and olive orchards, as well as around our secluded lakes, cattle ranch and chef’s garden. The experience culminates back at the Winery Chateau for wine country charcuterie paired with Jordan Chardonnay and Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon. Tickets go on sale at jordanwinery.com on March 2.

Join Seghesio family members Jim and Ned Neumiller, fourth & fifth generation vineyard managers, as they lead you on an adventure through the 120-year-old vines at Seghesio’s Home Ranch estate, which was established in 1895. Explore the Zinfandel and Italian varietals on this historic property as you make your way to the top of Rattlesnake Hill. There will be hydration stops along the way (both wine and water), and hikers hard work will be rewarded with a delicious lunch and wine served at a scenic perch overlooking Alexander Valley.
