Dunn Vineyards

Dunn Vineyards is a prestigious winery located in the Howell Mountain AVA of Napa Valley, California. Established in 1979 by winemaker Randy Dunn and his wife Lori, Dunn Vineyards has earned a stellar reputation for producing outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon wines that showcase the unique character of their mountain terroir.

Randy Dunn, known for his unwavering commitment to quality and his preference for traditional winemaking methods, has been a driving force behind the success of Dunn Vineyards. His vision was to create wines that captured the power, structure, and age-worthiness inherent in the mountain-grown fruit.

The vineyards of Dunn Vineyards are situated at high elevations on Howell Mountain, ranging from 1,100 to 1,600 feet (335 to 488 meters) above sea level. The mountainous terrain, volcanic soils, and cooler microclimate contribute to the production of grapes with exceptional concentration, depth, and natural acidity.

Dunn's winemaking philosophy revolves around minimal intervention and allowing the vineyard to speak for itself. The grapes are hand-harvested and carefully sorted, with a focus on preserving the integrity of the fruit. In the cellar, Randy Dunn employs traditional techniques, including extended maceration and aging in predominantly French oak barrels, to craft wines of exceptional structure, complexity, and ageability.

The hallmark of Dunn Vineyards' wines is their remarkable aging potential and their ability to develop complexity and elegance over time. The Cabernet Sauvignons display intense flavors of dark fruits, earthy undertones, firm tannins, and a sense of place that reflects the unique characteristics of Howell Mountain.

Dunn Vineyards has received widespread critical acclaim and is highly regarded by wine enthusiasts and collectors. The wines consistently earn high ratings and have been recognized as some of Napa Valley's finest expressions of Cabernet Sauvignon. Despite the winery's success, Dunn Vineyards remains a small family-owned operation, with a limited production that allows for meticulous attention to detail and uncompromising quality.

Through his dedication to crafting age-worthy and terroir-driven wines, Randy Dunn has solidified Dunn Vineyards' position as an iconic producer in Napa Valley. The wines of Dunn Vineyards continue to impress with their depth, structure, and ability to age gracefully, showcasing the unique beauty of Howell Mountain and capturing the essence of Napa Valley's Cabernet Sauvignon.
