Donelan Family Wines
A boutique family owned and operated winery from Sonoma County producing Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Rhone varietal wines.
The singular Pinot Noir is from an unnamed vineyard in the Sonoma Coast. The fruit had never previously been sold to another producer. 50% whole cluster inclusion, indigenous yeast fermentations, aged 18 months in only 25% new French oak. The wine is named "Two Brothers" after Joe Donelan's two sons and the 2009 vintage is the first offering of Pinot Noir.
The wines are sold through a mailing list.
