Dutton-Goldfield Winery is an independent, locally-owned winery in the heart of the Russian River Valley. Dutton-Goldfield Winery began in 1998, when longtime colleagues, grape grower Steve Dutton and winemaker Dan Goldfield, teamed up to craft wines like Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir, Riesling, Rose, Syrah/Shiraz, Gewurztraminer, and Zinfandel that express the personalities of their vineyards and which they’d enjoy drinking at their own dinner tables. Our mission is to produce world-class wines that display the brightness of fruit, complexity, structure, and balance reflective of our cool coastal neighborhood.
Dutton-Goldfield Winery’s wines are sourced from some of the finest vineyards in the Russian River Valley, most of which comes from the award-winning Dutton Ranch (2017 Vineyard of the Year), owned by DG Partner/Grower, Steve Dutton. Dutton Ranch is comprised of over eighty separate small vineyards, each with its own characteristics. Along with the fruit from Dutton Ranch, we also source Pinot Noir and Riesling from some spectacular single vineyard sites in Marin County, Sonoma Coast, and Anderson Valley.

Dutton-Goldfield’s Sonoma County vineyards, including all of Dutton Ranch’s vineyards, are Certified Sustainable under Sonoma County’s landmark program that includes:
- Being socially responsible in how growers work with their neighbors, employees, and community. One example of this is that Dutton Ranch provides dorm-style housing for their vineyard workers.
- Being environmentally conscientious with farming and winery practices. For example, Dutton Ranch’s vineyards have passed the Fish Friendly Farming Certification Program, which creates and sustains water quality and habitat.
- Remaining diligent and viable as an economically mindful business may be passed down to future generations.
