About AvinoDos Wines

AvinoDos is about new beginnings. It’s about the hopes and dreams of two farm kids from very different backgrounds but who share a common, simple bond to family and foundations in agriculture.

Read More

Friendship forms the foundation of AvinoDos, friendship that started over good wine. Our founders, Dan Dexter and Lorin Brambila, enjoy everything about wine, from working the earth to labeling bottles. But mostly they enjoy sharing wine with friends. That’s the fun part.

When they seized the entrepreneurial spirit of the West and launched AvinoDos, two things became immediately clear: First, they needed to make good wine that was true to the essence of Napa Valley. For that, they turned to Lorin’s father, Gustavo Brambila, an accomplished winemaker who helped write some of the rich history of Napa Valley. Second, they wanted to create a winery that embodied the friendship that helped launch it. A winery where you can relax and experience wine, regardless of how much or how little you know about it.

So, they created a winery that invites you to do more than just taste the Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Zinfandel and Sauvignon Blanc. You’re invited to share the experiences and connect with the people who make it happen. You’re invited to join our wine club, where you can enjoy catered dinners, special offers and other events. You’re invited to enjoy small, personal wine tours where you can taste wine still aging in the barrel. Come at the right time and you might be invited to pick grapes in the fields or roll up your sleeves and crush grapes to make wine.

When you experience these things for yourself, you’ll understand what inspired Lorin and Dan to uncork their ambitions and launch AvinoDos, or “wine from two.” Maybe you’ll even catch the entrepreneurial spirit. Hopefully you’ll gain a greater appreciation for wine – and make a few new friends.

Victor was excellent. Having a sommelier as your host is very educational. We learned so much more than a regular tasting would have provided. We also met the owner, Dan. His passion for wine making is obvious. His strong work ethic was evident by his purple stained hands. When your heart is in every bottle, it shows. We look forward to enjoying our first club shipment.

I was greeted by Victor, and he did a wonderful job introducing me to the wines at Avinodos. I got to meet Dan and watch them crush a batch of grapes. Altogether I was there for an hour and a half and felt like I'd made two new friends in addition to enjoying some great wines. A great experience!

Industrial setting but beautifully designed space. Interesting, educational presentation. Perhaps less of a match for parties who feel highly knowledgeable; we'd consider ourselves reasonably "savvy" and found it quite delightful. Excellent wine, truly.

While in Napa my girlfriends and I did appx 9 different wine tastings and Avinodos was hands down the best experience! Very intimate setting with a one on one tasting with the owner Dan as well as the wine maker Gustavo which was amazing. We got to do a barrel tasting and sample unreleased wines. I would highly recommend this winery to anyone. I will definitely be going back next time I am in Napa

This was the first wine tasting for us in Napa and, after many others, still one of our favorite. They have a nice selection of some great wines. And, Dan was wonderful! He was knowledgeable and helped us understand the basics without making us feel uncomfortable as novices. Tasty wines and a great tasting experience. Thanks Dan!

The experience was amazing one of our best in the 3 days of Napa and Sonoma. We spent time with Dan and he taught us a lot about wine tasting. We got to learn more about our favorite type of wine Malbec and they even gave us some yummy blue cheese to try with the Malbec, delicious! We signed up for the wine club and can't wait to get our first shipment. Steve and Melinda from Minnesota

Our visit to Avinodos Wines was fantastic. We thoroughly enjoyed the wine and meeting everyone that was hard at work that day. We were fortunate to be there during harvest time so we were able see part of the process first hand. We learned so much about the wine making process. Mr. Dexter treated us like family. We are looking forward to future shipments of Avinodos through their wine club!

It was a great experience, they had a great selection of wines as well as an excellent and knowledgeable staff. We were most impressed that the one of the owners himself took the time to take care of me and my friends who were mostly from out of town and were first time visitors to Napa wineries.
