The Next Chapter — Stryker Sonoma to become Foley Sonoma
The newest member of the Foley Family Wine portfolio, Stryker Sonoma will get a new name. Foley Sonoma will continue the grand heritage of Stryker Sonoma and, at the same time, be embarking on a new beginning which will be a showcase of Alexander Valley Cabernet and will also include smaller lots of other Bordeaux varietals from the vineyards. Look for Foley Sonoma wines to debut in Fall 2016.
Nestled on a gentle knoll shadowed by the nearby Mayacamas Mountains, the site of Stryker Sonoma Winery typifies the peaceful, serene beauty of the Alexander Valley in the world renowned Sonoma County, just eighty miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge. Our vision and creativity are inspired by the vineyards and countryside surrounding the Estate. Stryker Sonoma wines mix old-world tradition and modern technology to allow for gentler handling of both fruit and wine.
Our winemaking philosophy is about pure varietal expression which produces award winning, balanced wines rich in fruit and deep in character. The Vineyards produce 4,000 to 6,000 cases annually from the following varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec, Sangiovese, Tannat, Zinfandel, Chardonnay, and Semillon. Guests visiting the winery today can watch the winemaking process in action, viewing barrels as they are racked in the aging cellar and step onto the observation deck to see how grapes enter the crush pad for sorting and de-stemming.
In designing the winery with Nielsen Schuh Architects, Proprietor Pat Stryker was inspired to create buildings that are aesthetically beautiful, sensitive to the environment and in harmony with the landscape. The state of the art modern facility was specifically designed to create small lots of ultra-premium wines from the Estate Vineyard.
With the opening of the Tasting Room doors in 2002, the building won the Architectural Design Award for Northern California by AIA. Ever since, the Tasting Room has been open to the public daily 10:30 to 5:00 p.m. and is focused on extending a wine country experience that is truly “Quintessential Alexander Valley”.

A Special Wedding Deserves a Special Venue
Taking cues from the natural environment, the architects built a winery that captures the romance of winemaking. The natural curvature of the terrain was left intact and the buildings and site layout were designed to reflect the geometry of the vineyard rows. Offering a distinctive design with a stunning panorama of the picturesque Alexander Valley, the winery affords gorgeous views of the surrounding vineyards and the rugged Mayacamas mountain range.
A wedding is a special event that you and your family will remember for the rest of their lives. So why not choose a location as memorable as the moment?
