ACORN Winery

Healdsburg / United States


ACORN's acclaimed small production (under 2,000 cases/year) of field blend, estate wines are unique expressions of the character and remarkable diversity of their historic Alegría Vineyards.

Located near Healdsburg, in Sonoma County's Russian River Valley, ACORN wines are vineyard and vintage specific blends. Cabernet Franc, Dolcetto, Sangiovese, Axiom Syrah, and Heritage Vines Zinfandel are the primary wines produced.

Vineyard and winery owners Betsy & Bill Nachbaur are hands-on and passionate about preserving the tradition of field-blending and co-fermenting. ACORN's distinctive, well balanced, and memorable wines all include multiple grape varieties picked and co-fermented. The grapes are blended the day they are picked, as was done in the 1890's when the oldest portions of vineyard were first planted. Bill's passion and 28 years of active involvement, from pruning to bottling, are reflected in every bottle of ACORN wine.

Alegría means happiness and joy in Spanish, and it will make you happy to discover ACORN's field-blend wines made exclusively from their certified sustainable Alegria vineyards, where they grow 60+ grape varieties.

To experience the alegria of this special place, and to learn about field blending and co-fermenting, schedule an appointment for an informative private tasting, and possibly a vineyard walk.
