Dora Dain Wines
Our Story: We are a small family winery embarking on a venture that redefines small wineries. We are not big enough to be “boutique.” We are “micro.” We may even be “micro micro”. But we’re here to make the best wines possible and enjoy every moment of it with our family.
Our Land: Our winery is located in rural Lincoln, CA. We are at the base of the Sierra Foothills right where the hills start to roll. There are large granite outcroppings all around us and oak trees are abundant.
Our Wines: Our wine making journey started with Chardonnay and has grown from there. The new take on Chardonnay leans toward stainless steel fermented and less oak and butter flavors but we love a big oaky, buttery Chardonnay. We also love making Pinot Grigio, and Pinot Blanc, and Grenache, and Syrah, and Petit Verdot, and Tempranillo… well the list goes on.
Our Tasting Experience: If you have never visited us before, please understand that we are very small and new. We have sparse, rustic accommodations. The Vino Veranda is an open air structure that over looks our pond and neighboring low land. Our tasting area is scenic and natural, but there are no vines around it. We are planting vines on this property over time. Our existing vines are located off site.
By Appointment Only: Our tastings are by appointment only. You will be seated with the winemakers and they will take you through the currently available wines. You may have others in your group but the maximum we will seat at a time is 8. Tastings are $20/person and are outdoors so weather is a variable. Please email or call to schedule an appointment. We ask for 48 hours advance notice but if you’re in the area feel free to reach out and see if we can accommodate you!
We hope you decide to join us and bring your sense of adventure!
