I'm Alex Russan, I'm the owner of Spanish wine import company and sherry label Alexander Jules, but, to feed my wine obsession, I also make Metrick wine. Metrick is my attempt to wrap my brain around wine as much as one can in a single lifetime--and make fresh and interesting wines for you along the way.
The wines are made in a fresh, but ageworthy, style, sourced primarily from vineyards with significant coastal influence--they work wonderfully at the table. Vineyards are selected and harvest decisions made to encourage lively acidity and earthy, herbal and floral aromatics.
In the winery, I work in a way I feel best allows the character of the grape to show through as clearly, and precisely, as possible. (More here on my winemaking.)
In addition to Alexander Jules and Metrick, I am also the Advanced Winemaking Columnist for WineMaker Magazine, a Wine Science contributor to SevenFifty Daily, and a co-founder of the California Wine School.
I hope you enjoy my wines as much as I have enjoyed making them, and if you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
