Alex's Red Barn Winery is located in the Temecula Valley, in coastal Southern California. It is owned and operated by Alex and Lise Yakut. They have been in the wine industry for over twenty-five years, mostly as growers of prime quality wine grapes. They sold their grapes to wineries throughout California. They also enjoyed making very limited quantities of wines for family and friends.
Alex’s Red Barn is an enchanted vineyard that is situated on rolling hills, 1400 feet above sea level and approximately twenty miles from the Pacific Ocean. It is situated along the Long Valley Creek that flows into the Santa Margarita River, which in turn flows into the Pacific Ocean
Also, as of 2010, the winery now operates as a distillery, the first in Temecula wine country. Currently, they produce four types of brandies. Alex' Red Barn Brandy is aged for over two years in oak barrels and is triple-distilled to produce a truly smooth brandy comparable to the best French cognacs at a fraction of the price. In addition, they make Stingaree Pastis, White Pastis and Grappa. Alex's Red Barn Winery features a rare Solera system that produces excellent Sherry wines in the tradition of historical Spanish sherry producers of Jerez de la Frontera. The winery also produces Syrah, Grenache, Portobello and Viognier wines.
