Current Releases

2013 Carneros Chardonnay
Estate Grown
The 2013 Carneros Chardonnay is pale gold in color, with striking aromas of lemon, green apple, melon and linseed oil. The palate is bright and spicy, with lime, papaya and baked apple joined by hints of coriander and starfruit. A beam of a fresh acidity carries through the finish, as tropical flavors linger on the palate.


$50.00 USD


2012 Russian River Reserve Pinot Noir
Estate Grown
The 2012 vintage marks the fourth release of our Russian River Valley Reserve Pinot Noir. This wine is bright ruby in color, with huge aromas of blackberry, espresso, and black cherry. Intense and full-bodied on the palate, the blackberry flavors lean almost toward pie filling, and there is cassis, yet bright acidity yields cherry and cranberry flavors as well. Firm tannin holds everything together, and rich fruit flavors go on and on through the finish.


$90.00 USD

2012 Carneros Pinot Noir
Estate Grown
The Donum Ranch covers the slopes of three hills in the Carneros region just north of San Pablo Bay. Nestled amid these hills is a 50-acre vineyard, planted to a diverse collection of Dijon clones and heirloom selections of Pinot Noir. Our Carneros Estate Grown Pinot Noir not only comes from the best blocks in our vineyard - our grand cru sites - but also is a selection of the most appealing barrels within each lot.


$72.00 USD

2012 West Slope Carneros Pinot Noir
Estate Grown
West Slope comes from the middle portion of our west-sloping vineyard block, a 5.5 acre site at the Donum Ranch. Beginning in 2007, as the vines developed further depth and complexity with age, this block seemed to cry out to be bottled as a stand-alone, and the West Slope bottling was born. The West Slope truly represent the culmination of our search for the top Pinot Noir terroirs in Carneros.


$90.00 USD

2012 Russian River Pinot Noir
Estate Grown
Our Russian River Valley Pinot Noir comes from the Winside vineyard, planted in 1997 by Anne Moller-Racke to 10 acres of Dijon 115 and 667. The natural variations in soil across the vineyard, along with the blend of clones, result in a complex wine with richness, elegance and finesse.


$72.00 USD

2012 Anderson Valley Pinot Noir
Estate Grown

The 2012 marks the second release of this wine from the Angel Camp vineyard in the "deep end" of the Anderson Valley, where ocean fog keeps temperatures much cool much of the summer. The vineyard is planted to seven different clones of Pinot Noir planted in volcanic, sandy soil about 500 feet about sea level on a knoll with several different aspects. The Anderson Valley bottling represents a barrel-selected blend from all of these blocks.

$72.00 USD


The Gift of the Land

Donum means "gift of the land." We produce only single-vineyard, estate wines from vineyards in Carneros, Russian River Valley and Anderson Valley. Three of our Pinots - Carneros, Russian River Valley and Anderson Valley - carry appellations names while the others come from our most prized sites or are a small barrel selection. An estate Carneros Chardonnay completes our Burgundian portfolio.
