Dukes Family Vineyards is the realization of a dream; a passion growing from a love of great food and extraordinary wine. We strive for excellence in all aspects of our lives and are determined to settle for nothing less. In the pursuit of our dream, we are dedicated to the classic development and continual improvement of a truly exceptional Pinot Noir estate. At Dukes Family Vineyards, there is a commitment to sustainable agricultural methodologies to insure that the estate will continue as a viable living force, truly evergreen, being passed from generation to generation.
Over the years, we have come to hold the belief that the creation and sharing of wonderful food and incredible wine is one of life’s greatest joys. At the Dukes’ home, the kitchen is the center of life. Whenever family and friends come to the house, everyone tends to gravitate to the kitchen; a glass of wine in hand. Wine, food and friends seem so naturally to go hand in hand, an unbeatable combination.
With its complexity and subtle nuances, Pinot Noir may well be the perfect food wine. Very few wines will take an amazing meal to the next level. At Dukes Family Vineyards, the sole focus is toward quality; the creation of exceptional food friendly wines; elegant rather than overstated. To this end everyone involved is committed.
Like many of you, we were introduced to wine through friends whose lives focused around food and wine; friends who graciously opened their homes and shared the contents of their cellars as easily as one might share a cup of coffee. We were lucky enough to share many of the world’s most incredible wines due to the warmhearted generosity of these friends. Not surprisingly, an appreciation of wine was born and quickly became an obsession. Through these roots, it remains clear that the only thing better than discovering an incredible new wine is turning around and sharing it with friends.
We hope that you will join us in this pursuit and enjoy our wines along the way.
