“Great Vino ~ Great Tasting Experience”
Reviewed 16 February 2012

We frequent Healdsburg area 3 to 4 times a yr and decided to take a drive out Highway 128. We came upon Medlock Ames and stopped in. It was late morning on a Sunday. Our host John was very knowledgeable about the wine and the area (he grew up there). The wines were terrific and we purchased 6 chards. The tasting room is a combo of hit and retro. We really enjoyed it and look forward to going in the summer and hanging with some wine on their beautiful patio/grounds. Great addition to our regular stops.

After the tasting room closes, the other side of the room is a cocktail bar that brings in the locals after the tourist are back in their rooms. Might be worth checking out.

“What great wine - and a great tasting room!”
Reviewed 10 February 2012

Today, my husband and I stopped by and enjoyed wine and food pairing at Medlock Ames. For wines, this place was batting a 1000! Our wine steward, Steve, was very friendly and knowledgable. The location is an old grocery store / filing station that has been renovated and is absolutely charming. This is a small production winery, but they have it right! I would return in a heartbeat!

“Elegant wines and tasting room”
Reviewed 31 December 2011

Medlock Ames has exploded on the scene in its rural setting. Great events, excellent wines and a staff that pulls it all together. Will have to try the Alexander Valley Bar soon as it offers evening lounge/bar setting with full alcohol license. What a gem!!

“Great space - and great wine”
Reviewed 11 December 2011

Really liked this tasting room in the Alexander Valley very close to Healdsburg. Believe it was an old country store that has been updated beautifully and nicely landscaped also. And the wine is excellent. I became a wine club member!
