Testimonials

Aleksander wines are the true testament of passion, dedication, and resilience of a family-ran winery. When I first tried the 2011 vintage of the white label years ago, it was perhaps the most memorable breath of fresh air I had experienced in a long time. Who knew Merlot from Paso Robles could be this pretty and serious? Goran and his family knew for sure. Ever since we discovered these wines at the hotel we have successfully introduced it to some of the most experienced palates in the wine world. And every time their reaction is the same of our sommelier team “A refined Paso wine made in the most classic old world Bordeaux style” Every released vintage of both wines, white and private label, evoke the terroir in Goran’s backyard, and reflects the determination and hard work him and his family sweat year in and year out during harvest. To me, Aleksander wines are more than just that, wine; these are some of most friendly and exciting new wines in the market of fine wines. Nothing short of spectacular and memorable, like Sasha’s free throws.

On a trip to Europe, my husband and I fell in love with Bordeaux, and since that time have sought in California wines for that European depth and complexity. Alas, in 2011 were thrilled to taste the inaugural red blend of Aleksander! Finally, we experienced the complexity, structure and lingering finish we so missed.… Aleksander has since expanded its delicious repertoire in its 2012 and 2013 vintages, and we continue to delight in their emerging nuances and distinction. We applaud Aleksander’s journey and always look forward to their next adventure.
