One Journey | Three Paths
In honor of where I have been and what I have learned along the way. When we started in 2004, our original focus was singular Pinot Noir. I fell in love with Rhône varietals and the rest is history in the making.
In honor of where I am and how I got here. Dedicated to Rhône varietals from premiere growing sites farmed by incredible people exclusively in Santa Barbara County.
The Feminist Party
In honor of where we are going, embracing the fabulous women who have graced my life and the wonderful men who have supported me along the way. The Feminist Party is our principal GSM blend - we all work better together.
I Approach my work...
... with a lifetime of exquisite flavors, travels and experiences. A journalist by training and now a winemaker by passion, I am regularly inspired to never quit searching for that moment – the instant where it all makes sense. The two professions also continue to challenge me whether through words or wine, to craft timeless stories that are better when shared with others. I have discovered that winemaking and writing are very similar pursuits – the story is in the grapes, the harvest, the people, and the season. Each year is a fresh renewal. My goal today is to create vibrant, balanced and pleasurable wines using the basic ingredients of premium Santa Barbara County fruit, dedication and hard work.
Have you heard about our Vineyard Tour & Tasting Exploration?
One of the many perks of our wine club...
On this tour we visit the vineyards that are vital to the Casa Dumetz portfolio to better understand the environment from which these wines are created. We take care of you. Your job is to relax. We travel to five different vineyard sites, discuss their histories, orientation, soil composition, trellising framework, clonal makeup and more as we taste the wines born in each vineyard. You will truly get a flavor for how important the translation of place is to the character of a wine.
The Winemaker's Dilemma
