White Oak Vineyards & Winery

Alexander Valley

Our Story

The roots of a grapevine can grow to a surprising depth - 20 or even 30 feet below the soil surface. For over 30 years, White Oak Vineyards & Winery has been pushing its own roots deep into California's premier winegrowing appellations.

Born in Los Angeles, founder Bill Myers worked as a building contractor and salmon fisherman in Alaska. During the 1970's, Bill sold his boat and relocated to the bucolic town of Healdsburg, where he would purchase his first vineyard and trade fish for winemaking secrets.

With his newly purchased vineyard, a tiny tasting room and wine production facility just off the square in downtown Healdsburg, Bill started making wines under consultation of the highly respected MaryAnn Graf. He quickly became recognized for producing wonderful Sauvignon Blanc, Zinfandel and what was to become White Oak's flagship wine: Chardonnay.

In 1991, Bill took home first Sweepstakes Award from the prestigious Sonoma County Harvest Fair for his 1990 Sonoma County Chardonnay. Shortly after, an alliance with Don Groth brought 750 acres of prime vineyards across the Alexander, Russian River and Napa Valleys to White Oak. We presently use fruit solely from the Alexander and Russian River Valleys to produce White Oak wines.

October of 1998 celebrated the Grand Opening of the new Mediterranean-style Estate nestled in the heart of the renowned Alexander Valley, accommodating a larger production facility and national office space to meet the growing demands for the wine. The 17 acre Estate is also home to 12 acres of proprietary vineyards, including exclusive lots of Old Vine Zinfandel dating back to 1928 & 1935. Our picnic grounds, picturesque event space and beautiful three story tasting room are open daily.

Today, White Oak has refined its selection of estate and premium wines designed to reflect founder Bill Myers' original vision of great wines suited to a range of tastes - from graceful, elegant whites to rich & complex reds.
