Dutton-Goldfield Winery

Updated: Jan 13

Blog Post UPDATE!

Back when I visited Dutton Goldfield during my 100 Wineries In 100 Days challenge….

I had it on my radar to come back for their Sushi and Wine pairing.


Sushi is my kryptonite.

There was a time, just out of college, I was eating sushi on the daily!


I never think to pair sushi with wine.

I think Italian Food and BBQ when I think wine.


My good friend, Kathy, from @vinstagrape and I love to go on wine adventures at least once a month.

Kathy suggested we have a:



A day to visit both Dutton Goldfield and Dutton Estate.

Sounded fab to me!

As soon as she said Dutton-GOldfield I said…SUSHI PAIRING!!!!

It is well documented in this blog that Pinot is my favorite wine varietal.

Would Dutton-Goldfield’s renowned Pinot be a perfect pairing with Sushi?!?!


Turns out that Dutton-Goldfield works closely with Sebastopol’s Sushi Tozai right down the road.

Together they crafted the ultimate pairing.

Gewurztraminer is paired with a vegetarian Dragon Roll, which is made with tempura yam, green beans, fresh avocado and mango.


Their Pinot Noir cuts through the fatty salmon and avocado of the Alaska Roll.

I highly suggest doing this pairing with a small group.

Kathy and I each had our favorites.

She liked the Unagi with the Freestone Hill Pinot.

I was all about the Gewurtz with that Dragon Roll!

Plan this tasting in advance and call for a reservation!!!
