DNA Vineyards is dedicated to combining decades of experience with thousands of years of grapevines’ evolving genetics to produce outstanding select wines.

About Us

DNA Vineyards has been designing and crafting private label wines for national retailers for over 12 years. We maintain two vineyards in Sonoma and Mendocino Counties in California. Additionally, we contract from many premium growers in the region and make our wines in local, state-of-the-art facilities.

Andrea Silverstein


Andrea has been solely employed in the wine industry for over 20 years. She worked for Southern Wine & Spirits/American Wine & Spirits as a premium wine and spirits account manager in many of the country’s most prestigious wine accounts located in the West Los Angeles marketplace. She then founded a corporation, PacRim Wines & Spirits, and spent 10 years developing a successful wine and spirits export marketing company servicing large corporate wine accounts in Japan. Since selling that business in 2008, she has been solely dedicated to managing all financial and administrative aspects of DNA Vineyards’ operations.
Patton is as concrete a symbol for modern Mendocino wine as Mondavi is for Napa. Both men are energetic, passionate and unblinkingly outspoken about the place they call home. Tim Fish
