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

He is a sought-after winemaking consultant for wineries throughout Northern California. He site selects vineyards throughout Mendocino County and Northern California to make wines with unparalleled price/quality ratios for clients who include Trader Joe’s and The Wine and Spirits Guild of America. He directly sources and manages harvest and vinification for approximately 345,000 gallons of wines each year and expanded into Russian River Pinot Noir when DNA Vineyards moved to their Sonoma County vineyard in 2012.

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
