2020 Dornfelder

2020 Estate Dornfelder

We are excited for the second release of our Estate Dornfelder. This unique varietal was developed in Germany in 1955 and was grown in a new vineyard next to our winery on the eastern side of the Santa Clara Valley just east of Gilroy and is carefully tended by George and Lynda Green. They meticulously farm their vineyard to maximize quality. The 2020 growing season was outstanding the Santa Clara Valley allowing for a large crop with long hang time on the vine, giving intense and complex flavors. This velvety textured, dark colored wine has boysenberry syrup and floral aromas in the nose. The silky tannins combine with blueberry flavors and a toasted coconut finish.

Enjoy this wine with some roasted pork loin.

Verde Estate Vineyard

This amazing vineyard was planted in 2015 and is located at the foothills of the southern Diablo Range, it produces grapes of incomparable depth and flavor. The grapes were hand-picked at the peak of flavor and crushed within hours of harvest to ensure the flavor was maintained.
