AvinoDos Wines

Cabernet Franc
Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley

5 cases produced


  • A selection from our highest quality barrels of Cabernet Franc sourced from the old vine Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley vineyard
  • Aging for 30 months in Vosges and Allier French oak barrels
  • AvinoDos is nestled among a collection of some truly “rock star” vintners among the valley’s urban wineries
  • Winery production is small with disciplined attention to the highest quality and focused results


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, IL.

He 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.

While working for a biotech company, Dan met Lorin Brambila, son of prominent Napa Valley winemaker, Gustavo Brambila. The two men became friends, finding common ground over their shared agricultural background and their mutual interest in wine.

Lorin, who through his family was involved in vineyard management and winemaking invited Dan to help with a grape harvest. That first experience felt invitingly familiar to Dan, and it reignited his connection to agriculture. As that passion grew, Dan pursued a vision of producing wine, and AvinoDos was born.
