Sebastopol Vineyards

California, the most populous state of the United States, located on the Pacific coast of North America is the home of and wine producing regions such as Santa Barbara and Northern California's Wine Country.

Dutton Estate Winery is in the Russian River Valley located near the small town of Sebastopol. Once a dominant apple-growing region, Sebastopol is now a destination hide-away and home to the winery’s founders, Joe and Tracy Dutton. Joe and Tracy’s agricultural heritage is deeply rooted in Sebastopol, as Tracy’s great-grandparents began farming apples in the 1920’s and today continues growing apples and grapes at the family’s recognized farm and food production facility in Forestville at Kozlowski Farms. Joe is co-owner of Dutton Ranch, which was founded in 1964 by his parents. Today, Dutton Ranch farms 1150 acres of grapes and 150 acres of apples, all within the Green Valley-Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast appellations.

The concept for Tracy and Joe to begin producing wine in 1995 was to build a business into which their three daughters could grow and carry on family traditions. While Joe continues to manage the vineyards at Dutton Ranch, Tracy spends her days managing the winery. It’s their passion at Dutton Estate Winery to produce unparalleled vineyard designated pinot noir, chardonnay and syrah.

Their Dutton Estate wine program began with the 2002 vintage. Dutton Estate wines articulate the unique terrior of the land. Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah varietals are produced individually to speak the many vineyards within the cool-climate growing appellations of the Green Valley, Russian River and Sonoma Coast.
