Doren Vineyard, Kenwood, CA
Doren Cabernet Sauvignon was born in our family’s petite 1⁄2 acre vineyard located in Kenwood, California in the heart of the Sonoma Valley (our immediate next door neighbors are Chateau St. Jean and Landmark). The vineyard is organically farmed with minimal human intervention. We farm keeping the ultimate level of respect for our land and use sustainable practices in our vineyard to keep the soils viable now and into the future. Our children play in, and in close proximity to this vineyard, and we enjoy the outdoors of this property surrounded by the vines. Our commitment to keeping the vineyard free from chemicals and anything toxic transcends the crop itself.
Sobre Vista, Glen Ellen, CA
In 2016 our farmer, Ben Calderon offered us grapes from another postage stamp sized vineyard similar to ours that he was farming organically. Ben planted Sobre Vista in 2009 (the same year our son Max was born!) and once we saw the vines, we jumped at the opportunity to purchase this fruit. The 2016 vintage will mark the first vintage of Doren that is not exclusively from our single family vineyard – as our intention will be to blend to two lots together before bottling.
