15001 Chalk Hill Rd.
Healdsburg , CA , United States http://www.lancaster-estate.com/
(707) 433-8178

Marked by an impressive entry gate, this family-owned winery is built on a hillside in Alexander Valley, where the Chalk Hill and Knights Valley appellations meet. A long driveway leads through 53 acres of vineyards to the Tuscan-style winery, an ochre-hued stucco building surrounded by lush gardens and stone sculptures. There, the company produces classic Bordeaux wines, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec, and Merlot. Available by appointment only, the estate tours include a tasting of four wines in the hand-carved aging caves, which are decorated with mobile-like chandeliers and a stained-glass inset of the Lancaster crest.
