Dutton Estate Winery is in the Green Valley AVA in the Russian River Valley located near the small charming town of Sebastopol. Once a dominant apple-growing region, Sebastopol is now a destination hide-away and home to the winery’s founders, Joe and Tracy Dutton.
Joe and Tracy’s agricultural heritage is deeply rooted in Sebastopol, as Tracy’s great-grandparents began farming apples in the 1920’s and today continues growing apples and grapes at the family’s recognized
farm and food production facility in Forestville at Kozlowski Farms.
Joe is co-owner of Dutton Ranch, which was founded in 1964 by his parents. Today, Dutton Ranch farms 1300 acres of grapes and 250 acres of apples, all within the Green Valley-Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast appellations.
Both Joe and Tracy valued their experience growing up and wanted that same experience for their three girls. They wanted a business that their three girls could be part of. Joe is a driving force in the vineyards and continues to manage the vineyards at Dutton Ranch. Tracy oversees the winery and the three girls can be seen helping out at winery events.
