From its perch high on a crest in the Mayacamas Mountains, Adler Fels (German for “Eagle Rock”) has the perfect view of California’s most famous vineyards: from Sonoma to Napa and beyond. From this vantage point, our winemakers are ideally positioned to select the very best vineyards from which to craft their wines.

For thirty-five years, we have made award-winning wines through a simple focus: excellent sourcing and a world-class winemaking team that allows the qualities of the grapes to shine through to the glass.

Today that vision lives on—our renowned winemakers Aaron Bader and Linda Trotta continue the tradition of making superlative wines from top grape growers who have worked with the winery for as many as three generations.

Adler Fels wines are based on three key elements:

An eagle eye – searching out the best fruit, and a keen vision for making artisan wines with intense varietal character, allowing the quality of these top appellations and vineyards to come through in every glass.

Aaron Bader and Linda Trotta – top-level experience everywhere from Opus One to Rupert & Rothschild Vignerons, Darioush to Gundlach Bundschu, have a careful eye for detail that brings out the best in every lot of grapes, every barrel of wine.

Thirty-five years of working with the local growers we know and trust to grow superlative grapes, and the skill to turn those grapes into some of the most award-winning wines in America.
