A dry-farmed site planted 100 years ago and head-trained still, Dina’s is a study in baked cherry, blackberry and plum, rich and viscously thick. Velvety tannins and ample weight provide an unctuous lushness that is complemented by underlying acidity. - Virginie Boone, Wine Enthusiast, June/July 2021
Wines From This Vineyard
Dina's Vineyard was planted by the Arata family more than 100 years ago. Today only about five acres of gnarled, dry-farmed vines remain at the Arata home. The vines are predominantly headtrained. They are planted on the typical old-vine, eight-by-eight spacing, originally intended to allow horses to cultivate between the vines in both directions of the vineyard planting. A deep, dark color, coffee-like aromas, and dense, broad texture are all typical indicators of Dina's Vineyard terroir.
