Founded in Sonoma Valley in 1979 by David and Ayn Coleman and perching high on a crest in the Mayacamas Mountains, Adler Fels (German for “Eagle Rock”) has views of vineyards in Sonoma to Napa and beyond. In 2016, they announced that they had updated their brand with new wines and new packaging. Winemakers Aaron Bader and Linda Trotta continue the tradition of making the wines from top grape growers who have worked with the winery for as many as three generations.
