Casa Dumetz - in honor of what I have learned.
It all started in 2004 with a tiny patch of raw earth and a bucket of grapevines to make a dream come true. The initial goal was to produce Pinot Noir from these grapevines. “The best laid plans....” In the process of digging in the dirt, we learned the true meaning of terroir and its absolute vital role in producing premium fruit. Casa Dumetz is what brought me here, to this place. With the 2017 vintage, the Casa Dumetz label will produce a singular Pinot Noir from a different vineyard site in the Sta. Rita Hills each vintage. Casa Dumetz is the overall umbrella for our three labels, which includes Clementine Carter and The Feminist Party. The Rhône varietals are now dedicated to our Clementine Carter label. Our principal multi-varietal blend will be The Feminist Party GSM, highlighting our collaborative drive.
