DaVero Farms & Winery
Our farm is located in the legendary Dry Creek Valley of Sonoma County, and spans a wide range of microclimates. The valley floor block is 16 acres of classic Dry Creek/Russian River: cooling fog blankets the ground until late morning, then burns off to yield hot afternoons and warm evenings. Farther up the hill, our original farm’s 51 acres are usually above the fog bank, with a fantastic, primarily eastern exposure that gives our land the first rays of sun, yet shields it during the burning late afternoon.
Overall, our climate and topography are a lot like Tuscany, which is what led us to plant Italian olive trees and grape varietals.
In keeping with our fundamental approach to farming, our vineyards are small — just a few acres each — and each has unique character that represents itself in the wine. At the moment just two are planted, but we hope to add additional sections in the coming years.
All of our wines are small-production and hand-made at every step of the way. Our philosophy is to keep as close to what Nature gives us as possible, which means our wine is really made in — and by — the vineyard. We also believe that wine is simply one ingredient in a meal, and as such should be balanced, food-friendly, delicious — and never pretentious.
