The best winery in Healdsburg lies off the beaten path. Just ten minutes from the Healdsburg Plaza, Hawkes has been growing Cabernet in the bucolic Alexander Valley since 1972 and now offers two private tasting options, one in the vineyard, one in our barrel room, both focused on our tiny production, Single Vineyard Cabernet.

Our family has been growing grapes in the Alexander Valley for over forty years. Back then, people didn’t think about world class Cabernet when they thought about Alexander Valley. Now things are a little different. We farm three estate Cabernet Vineyards and have supplied grapes for some of the most famous wines ever made in California. In 2002, we made the first vintage of wine under our own name Hawkes 100% estate Cabernet Sauvignon from Alexander Valley, grown and crushed and barreled and bottled by our family.
