Lower-Alcohol Map of Sonoma and Napa Wineries by Jordan Vineyard & Winery

Low Alcohol Wine Tasting Tours: 2018 Napa and Sonoma Winery Map

Best Wineries to Visit in Napa and Sonoma If You Like Elegant, Lower-Alcohol Wines

California wine country has its share of Sonoma and Napa winery maps. Each is organized by geographic region, offering tourists a convenient, vinous travel guide to Napa and Sonoma wineries. Some include details on amenities, such as food pairings, picnic grounds and wifi, but very little information about the wines produced. Enter the first official Napa and Sonoma Wineries Low Alcohol Wine Tasting Map, now in its second edition in 2018. Because Jordan has been making balanced wines for 40 years, we’ve watched many wineries come and go—and the trend of high-alcohol wines rise—so we’ve put together a map showcasing the best wineries to visit in Napa and Sonoma  if you like elegant, low-alcohol wines. Why take on such a project? We’ve never seen a California wine country map for visitors based on wine style, and interest in lighter wines is becoming more prevalent in wine country, as savvy visitors grow to appreciate the food-friendly charms of elegant wines that emphasize fruit and acidity over tannin and alcohol.

The traditional wine country tasting-route map format has been retooled to pinpoint wineries in Napa and Sonoma counties that produce wines with moderate alcohol levels (14% and under), keen balance, elegance and host guests to tastings, typically by appointment. In Europe where wine regions are mostly in cooler climates, lower alcohol is considered 13% or below, but in Northern California’s sun-drenched inland appellations, making red wines with those alcohol levels has become less common in the last three decades (though there are newcomer low-alcohol advocates), so we set the cut-off at under 14 abv. Of the 38 wineries included, 65% are located in Sonoma and 35% in Napa–the latter of which includes four sparkling wine producers. The results are not surprising, considering the ocean influences of cooler-climate Sonoma, where myriad grape varieties thrive, and Napa’s warmer inland locale, where powerhouse cabernets remain the focus.

In some cases, we’ve included wineries that produce primarily low-alcohol wines but also make one or two bottlings at or just above 14%—those that make wines from notoriously ripe grapes, such as zinfandel, barbera, sangiovese or petite sirah, for example. You’ll also find some vintners known for balance excluded, such as Benziger (several single-vineyard wines above 14%), Inman Family and Ridge (eight zinfandels above the cut-off). Sparkling wine producers whose bubblies are well below 14% alcohol also made the list, but some of their still wines are slightly above the 14 mark. Those with tasting rooms that are open to the public without an appointment may only accept guests on specific days of the week; wineries with food pairings almost exclusively require appointments for those experiences, so please make reservations far in advance. (Food pairings included range from a cheese plate to hors d’oeuvres.) Alcohol percentages shown on labels and winery websites were used to compile this listing.

If we’ve missed any of your favorites Napa and Sonoma wineries, let us know in the comments. The map will be updated each summer; any additions are noted by date in the list below; publish date of the latest version is noted in the lower-right-hand corner of the map.

2018 Low Alcohol Wine Guide to Napa and Sonoma Wineries

Grapegrower Steve Dutton and winemaker Dan Goldfield joined forces to found Dutton-Goldfield in 1998. Since then, they have produced, bright, engaging wines, most under 14% abv. Their new releases of riesling, gewurztraminer, pinot blanc, chardonnay and pinot noir check in at 13.5% or so, from vineyards in Sonoma, Mendocino and Marin counties. The outlier is a Morelli Lane Russian River Valley Zinfandel, at a moderate 14.1%. (Added 7/17/18)

Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards

Low-alcohol levels run throughout the sparkling wine lineup of this Spanish-owned winery in Carneros. The still chardonnays and pinot noirs tend to be over 14%, but the finest bottlings are the bubblies, sold at very fair prices for the quality level. (Added 6/21/17)

Hirsch Vineyard

David Hirsch’s mountaintop vineyard on the far-western Sonoma Coast is chilly, wind-swept and just barely suitable for growing wine grapes. From there, he and winemaker Anthony Filiberti coax small yields of fruit that becomes delicate, precise pinot noirs and chardonnays with verve and most under 13% abv. (Updated 7/17/18)

Horse & Plow

Suzanne Hagins and Chris Condos produce low-alcohol wines in Sonoma County, under their Horse & Plow label and with a commitment to purchasing organically- and biodynamically-grown grapes. Occasionally a cabernet franc tips past 14%, but their pinot noirs weigh in at 13% or so. (Added 7/17/18)

Iron Horse Vineyards

The Sterling family founded Iron Horse in the 1970s, in the cool, foggy Green Valley subset of the Russian River Valley. Their sparkling wines, crafted by David Munksgard, are sublime, made with Champagne methods. Still chardonnays and pinot noirs are also produced, almost all at 13.5% abv.

Jordan Vineyard & Winery

Since 1976, Rob Davis has made every bottle of Jordan wine, staying the course in composing elegant, age-worthy wines that never shout yet talk above a whisper. One of the few to focus on just two wines, Davis makes a silky cabernet and crisp chardonnay each vintage, the wines considered more French in style than Californian, with intense fruit and an acid structure that makes both wines popular on restaurant wine lists. (Added 6/21/17)

Jamie Kutch of Kutch Wines.

Kutch Wines

In the early 2000s, stock trader Jamie Kutch left Wall Street for the Sonoma Coast, to produce pinot noirs that are remarkably well-stuffed and intense for their 12.5% average alcohol levels. Top vineyard designates include Bohan, MacDougall and Falstaff. Tastings by appointment. (Updated 7/17/18)

Katy Wilson works with Ross Cobb as a consultant to several Sonoma wineries. LaRue is her personal brand, named for her great grandmother, Veona LaRue Newell. Wilson’s Sonoma Coast chardonnays and pinot noirs, from such vineyards as Rice-Spivak and Thorn Ridge, are elegant and energetic. The current release, 2016 Charles Heintz Vineyard Chardonnay is 14.2%, yet other bottlings are below 14%. Tastings by appointment only, at Emmaline Ann Vineyards, west of Sebastopol. Directions given at time of booking. (Updated 7/17/18)

Leo Steen Wines

Leo Steen Hansen left his sommelier job in Denmark to make wine in many regions, eventually settling in Healdsburg, where he is the winemaker for Stuhlmuller Vineyards. Under his own label, he makes chenin blancs, chardonnays, grenaches and cabernet francs that are under 13.8% alcohol, yet burst with fresh fruitiness and vitality. The flagship Dry Creek Valley old-vine chenin blanc is 12.5%, the flavorful DCV grenache 13%. Hansen has a new tasting room in Healdsburg. (Updated 7/17/18)

LIOCO Wine Co.

Former wine importer Matt Licklider and ex-sommelier Kevin O’Conner are LIOCO, which is now operated by Licklider and his wife, Sara. Their chardonnays, pinot noirs and carignans come from chilly climes and are naturally low in alcohol, in the 12-13.5% range. Naturally fermented, too. Vineyards in Sonoma, Mendocino and the Santa Cruz Mountains are their grape sources. They offer a range of tasting opportunities; check their website. (Updated 7/17/18)

Littorai Wines

Owner/winemaker Ted Lemon is renowned for his measured, meticulous, bracing chardonnays and pinot noirs from the Sonoma Coast and Mendocino’s Anderson Valley. His world-class wines are difficult to acquire, yet worth the search. It’s remarkable how much flavor can come from 13.5% alcohol wines. Tastings by appointment. (Added 6/21/17)

The Nalle family has tamed the alcohol levels in its zinfandels for four decades.

Nalle Winery

Founders Doug and Lee Nalle, and now their son, Andrew, refuse to follow stylistic trends in zinfandel. No matter the fashion of the moment, they have eschewed jammy, potent zinfandels for those with poise, grace, and maximum 14% alcohols. Pinot noir and cabernet sauvignon also weigh in under 14%. (Updated 7/17/18)

2383 Dry Creek Road, Healdsburg, 707-433-1040, nallewinery.com

Pax Mahle Wines

Pax Mahle gained winemaking fame in the early 2000s, making big, bold syrahs under the Pax label—high-alcohol wines that Robert Parker adored. But after a fall-out with his majority investor, Joe Donelan, Mahle pressed pause on his eponymous brand to focus on Wind Gap Wines, a label committed entirely on elegant, acid-driven wines from the cold Sonoma Coast, which Mahle had founded with his wife in 2006. In 2018, Mahle sold his 50 percent share of Wind Gap to Terroir to again focus on the Pax Wine Cellars label. There’s no question that the former East Coast sommelier knows precisely what to do in the cellar, focusing on lesser known wine varietals that express plenty of verve. The Wind Gap tasting room in Sebastopol became the home of Pax wines in summer 2018. There, you’ll find trousseau gris, chenin blanc, valdeguie, and 50/50 syrah-viognier blend on tap. Several cool-climate, single-vineyard wines are available by the bottle. (Added 7/17/18)

William Allen is the chief shepherd of this brand, which focuses on Rhone varieties, including grenache blanc, viognier, grenache, syrah and mourvedre. All wines are under 14% alcohol– some less than 13% — production is small, and the rewards are large for those who appreciate less-is-more wines.

Low alcohol is key,” she says. The cabs are known for aging beautifully. (Added 6/21/17)

Dunn Vineyards

Randy and Lori Dunn have been championing lower-alcohol cabernet sauvignon since the 1970s with a focus on mountain-grown fruit. Dunn and his son make just two bottlings–a Howell Mountain and a Napa Valley cabernet–and believe that 14 percent is “the threshold beyond which cabernet tastes hot and unbalanced,” according to a recent interview in Town & Country.

British-born Philip Togni arrived in Napa Valley in 1959, made memorable wines for Chappellet and Cuvaison, and started his own label on Spring Mountain. Two cabernet sauvignons—Tanbark Hill from younger vines and the hallmark estate bottling—are tight and tannic on release, and reward with a decade of cellaring. Labeled as “Table Wine,” they don’t disclose alcohol content; whatever it is, Togni’s wines are focused and without fat. Hard to find. Call ahead. (Added 6/21/17)

      Hi Ryan,
      If 95% of your production is below 14%, we are happy to include you. We considered it, but it seemed like there were too many zins above 14.
      Thanks,
