Our winery is situated on an outstanding vineyard site that has received extraordinary care and attention, and has a track record of excellent, ageworthy wines. Starting with the founding of the winery in 1973, Tom and Carole Dehlinger have built a loyal following. Joined by their daughters Carmen and Eva, as well as a talented and dedicated staff, Dehlinger Winery now has a four-decade history of producing wines that express the great potential of our land in Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley.
In 1975 Tom Dehlinger planted the initial 14 acres of vineyard. From the start, his emphasis has been on extracting, developing, and preserving the maximum flavor from the grapes and producing small amounts of hand-worked, barrel-aged wines.
Today our focus is entirely on estate grown wines, producing 7000 cases annually of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah, and Cabernet Sauvignon.
We are more interested in perfection of technique and the balance and intensity of flavors than making large amounts of wine.
Since our first vintage we have enjoyed a national reputation and positive reviews. Wine writers and our loyal customer base praise our family winery for making reliable wines of consistent quality.
