I saw her pic on insta and my jaw dropped.

Surely this pic was taken in New York? Europe? LA? Jessica Herin @jessicaherrin CEO of @stelladot standing in front of a gigantic shiny heart captivated me.

I looked at the geo location on her post. Donum Estates? Must be in Napa. I clicked on the location. SONOMA!!!!!!! Whaaaaaaatttt?!?! A by reservation only winery.

Pricey. Incredibly worth the splurge. Chardonnay and one of California’s top Pinot producers. An awe-inspiring art and sculpture collection that pairs perfectly with the exquisite wines. World-class, international, contemporary sculptures on their 200 acre Sonoma estate.

“If you take art, put it into a beautiful landscape and at the same time enjoy it with a glass of wine, the experience is much larger than if the three are enjoyed separately.” Says the majority owner of Donum. Can you believe these pictures?!?!?

A 9 feet tall and 27 feet wide bronze and steel spider. They had to build a special enclosure on the estate property just to house this spider.

Sanna, a giant head sculpture. The first sculpture you see entering the estate. At the end of the wine tasting a rugged atv tours you around the vast property to look closely at each sculpture. I posed in front of the “Love Me” sculpture. A heart in polished mirrored steel. In its center a deep ‘black hole’ type cavity. This heart presides over the meticulously cared for Donum Vineyards.
