How Alexander describes Dunn Vineyards:

​"Dunn Vineyard wines have achieved legendary status, representing pure expressions of mountain terroir with remarkable fruit berry purity and distinctive mountain tannins that grant them the ability to age gracefully for decades. These wines stand out as singular in Napa, and the mastery of Howell Mountain is exemplified like no other by Randy Dunn and his family."

Wines by Alexander, a Quebec wine agency, is proud to present Dunn Vineyards.

Dunn Vineyards originated in 1979 when Randy and Lori Dunn acquired a 14-acre property on Howell Mountain. Randy pursued studies at UC Davis before securing his initial position at Caymus Winery. The Howell Mountain AVA was established in 1983, four years post the founding of Dunn Vineyards. Randy played a pivotal role among the vintners advocating for the Howell Mountain AVA. The vines now thrive between 1800-2000 ft, covering approximately 43 acres. Presently, their overall production is around 5000 cases, encompassing both Dunn Vineyards Howell Mountain and Dunn Vineyards Napa Blend. The Dunn Vineyards Howell Mountain Cabernet is crafted exclusively from their estate vineyards, undergoing a 32-month aging process in 100% new French Oak. This wine is made for ageing, and any Dunn Vineyard wines from the 1980s are drinking wonderfully today. The Dunn Napa Blend incorporates fruit from Coombsville, imparting softer tannins for earlier consumption. Dunn wines are characterized by their understated elegance, eschewing high alcohol and heavy extraction, yet retaining polished tannins, being age-worthy, and demonstrating a strong terroir influence. They not only reflect Howell Mountain but resonate with it, earning a well-deserved place among California's most exceptional wines.
