Let’s dive into everything Dutton Estate Winery by exploring 4 topics that really embody, for me, this Sonoma County winery treasure:
Chip and Joanna Gaines Would Approve
Eyes Rolling Back From Mouth Watering Food
Sonoma County Farm Royalty
All In The Family
Before we get into those juicy topics I need to first tell you that…
My wine tasting adventure buddy Kathy, aka Vinstagrape on Instagram, arranged for us to have a DUTTON DAY!!!
What is a Dutton Day?
Kathy and I highly recommend you head to Sebastopol area and book appointments at both of these wineries and make your very own Dutton Day memories.
Eat a super light breakfast.
Experience the Sushi Paring at Dutton-Goldfield for lunch.
Then head to Dutton Estates for their seasonal food pairing for a late afternoon delightful treat.
Alright, back to everything Dutton Estate!
Here are 4 stand-out elements that pop out to me when I think of my tasting experience at Dutton Estates.
1. Chip and Joanna Gaines Would Approve
From the moment you park and walk up to the winery, you instantly feel down-home farm vibes.
Kathy and I visited the winery in fall. The coziest time to wine taste.
As we walked up to the tasting room, a vintage tractor sits out front decorated with rustic pumpkins.
The tasting room feels like a home nestled among 50+ year old chardonnay vines.
Inside the tasting room there are handprinted signs in gorgeous Pinterest worthy font.
One sign says…
‘Every Family Has A Story, Welcome To Ours’.
You instantly feel like you’ve been wrapped in a winery hug.
I made a comment to our hostess Elizabeth, Hospitality Coordinator:
‘This tasting room is exactly what I would imagine if Chip and Joanna Gaines owned a winery. This is how they would decorate.’
She replied,“You must tell Tracy that.”
Tracy is founder of the winery along with her husband, Joe Dutton.
There is no doubt that Tracy’s cozy decor sets the tone for a day of relaxed wine tasting, and it’s like hanging out with the Dutton family.
2. Eyes Rolling Back From Mouth Watering Food
Kathy and I experienced the Harvest Small Bites & Wine Pairing.
DELISH! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
Each season the Executive Winery Chef, Carol Kozlowski-Every and Kylie Dutton work together to create an exceptional pairing to knock-the-socks off guests.
