Welcome to J. Rickards Vineyards & Winery!

We are a family-run operation of both wine grape farming and wine production, located at the northern end of the Alexander Valley in Sonoma County. Owned and operated by Jim and Eliza Rickards, the Vineyards have been planted over the past four decades, augmenting the original 1908 Zinfandel vines. We are proudly celebrating Jim's 40th Anniversary as a wine grower this year, and we would love to show you around. Come on up for a tasting and explore our Old Vine Zinfandel block before cooling off with a visit to our innovative Wine Cave!

Open 11-4  Monday through Saturday

Tasting is complimentary for groups under 8!
