Now the fourth-generation Dusi operating the vineyard, she decided to take things further and try winemaking, crafting her very own 100% Zinfandel from the Dante Dusi Vineyard.

Camins 2 Dreams

Dutcher Crossing Winery

(Sonoma County)

In 2007, Debra Mathy bought Dutcher Crossing, initially producing just five wines on 25 acres, but now it's making over 30 varieties and has grown to 75 acres of lush vineyards.
"We want our guests to feel like family and walk away with an experience they won't get anywhere else," says Mathy of visiting the gorgeous 1900s farmhouse-style winery.

Handley Cellars (Mendocino County)

Lulu Handley (daughter of the original owner) stays true to her mother's legacy with her mission of crafting wine unique to the region's soil and climate.
A visit to this family- and dog-friendly winery is equally memorable by viewing fabulous folk art Lulu's grandfather, Ray Handley, collected from around the world.
