Our Story

 

Dandelion Vineyards is a unique fusion of vineyards and vignerons.

Our wines represent decades of experience, blending the fruit of our heirloom vineyards with the finest traditions of artisan winemaking. Dandelion Vineyards is a combination of old vineyards, a young winemaker, and a couple of mates to help out in-between, which we believe makes for the ideal winery.

Our vineyards are our family, their wines our children.  Serious stuff, certainly. Proper fun, absolutely. The lifelong search to appreciate and understand the essence of wine, its terroir, leads us on a vinous treasure hunt, following the Dandelion's Wishing Clock if you will, that always inspires.

Dandelion Vineyards are proven plantings that have stood the test of time. We grow our own grapes and source from the best of family vineyards. Our wish is to nurture the unique character of these vineyards and express their terroir in our wines.

We believe that to capture variety, vintage and vineyard requires an enlightened approach.  Separating single sites, and even single soil types, vine by vine if need be.
