The Winery

Dutcher Crossing Winery

At Dutcher Crossing Winery, their belief is simple—to be a well-balanced, three-legged stool. Leg one is to make the best wine they can, staying true to the vineyard, vintage, and varietal. The second leg is the beautiful sense of place within their vineyards and winery. Finally, the third leg is hospitality. Whether you are a long-time visitor or new to the property, they want to welcome and treat everyone as they would their own mothers. With the balance of all three legs, Dutcher Crossing Winery creates an experience like none other in Sonoma County.
