Description

For our inaugural presentation of AvinoDos Wines at Premiere Napa Valley we have chosen what has quickly become the winery’s flagship variety. The source vineyard of this old-vine Cabernet Franc is exceptional for its deep-rooted history on the southern edge of the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley nested appellation. The slightly cooler climate provides for much longer hang time for the fruit, incorporating concentrated, complex and layered expression of flavors. Your wine is aging for 30 months in 100% new French oak barrels sourced mainly from the forests of Allier and Vosges.

Dan Dexter

Winemaker, AvinoDos Wines

Winemaker, Dan Dexter

Dan Dexter grew up amid 400 acres of grain fields farmed by four generations of Dexters in Toulon, Ill.

Dan grew up in a family where farming isn't just a career, but a way of life. A family that values hard work and doing what's right - values that Dan still carries today. Growing up on a farm also planted the seeds for Dan to one day "be his own boss."

While working for a biotech company, Dan met Lorin Brambila. The two men became fast friends, finding common ground over their shared agricultural background, their mutual interest in wine and their entrepreneurial drive.

Lorin, who was involved in winemaking through his father, Gustavo, eventually invited Dan to help with a grape harvest. That first experience felt invitingly familiar to Dan, and it reignited his connection to agriculture. As the friendship grew, Dan and Lorin began sharing a vision of producing wine, and AvinoDos was born.
