  • Chocolate & Wine Tasting Experience $20.00/ppGROUP SIZE 1 - 5

    Daily

    We invite you to indulge in our Divine Wine & Chocolate Experience! Chocolate is considered to be the confectionery match to wine. Perhaps they pair so well together because there’s a similar process in the making of both. Cacao seeds must be fermented, dried, and roasted to produce the chocolate flavor. Grapes must be pressed from the skins to collect the juice and then fermented to make wine. No wonder there are so many wine and chocolate lovers! Please call to reserve parties of 6+. Approximately 45 Minutes.

Our family is six generations of forward-thinking Sonoma County farmers. Each bottle of Dutton Estate wine is our way of sharing our love for this revelatory landscape, our commitment to sustainable farming, and our deep familial bonds.
Dutton Estate Winery is a charming and delightful, family-owned, working winery, offering a genuine, down to earth wine country experience. Taste and eat your way through one of our many tasting experience selections. We offer unique food & wine pairings and our small bites menu is created by our winery chef. The small bites tasting menu changes monthly. Our Spanish-style tasting room is nestled in a 50-year old Chardonnay vineyard and warmly welcomes guests. We offer an array of Russian River Valley wines grown and bottled on our estate properties. Crafting small lot wines, exclusive to those visiting our estate property is our specialty.
Our Rosé of Pinot Noir is cheerful, and Sauvignon Blanc is lively, bright and crisp. The Chardonnays are luscious and our Pinot Noir wine express beautiful sophistication and grace. Syrah is bold and delicious and our Late Harvest Syrah is a divine sweet ending. Our sparkling grand finale will brighten and refresh your palate. We craft Hard Apple Ciders and made with organic, farm fresh apples grown on our family's 250 acres of apple orchards. Our family cordially invites and welcomes you to visit Dutton Estate Winery.
Dutton Estate Winery located in the Green Valley AVA of the Russian River Valley is situated near the small charming town of Sebastopol. Once a dominant apple-growing region, Sebastopol is now a destination hide-away for visitors and home to the winery’s founders, Joe and Tracy Dutton.
Joe and Tracy’s agricultural heritage is deeply rooted in Sonoma County, as Tracy’s great-grandparents began farming apples in the 1920’s and today continues growing apples and grapes at the family’s recognized farm and food production facility in Forestville at Kozlowski Farms.

Wine & Seasonal Small Bites Tasting Experience on 4/12/19 11:15 AM

My husband and I stop at Dutton two or three times a year. We always receive excellent service and the food and wine pairing tasting is our absolute favorite! The pairings change seasonally and create a memorable experience. We finally became members after years of stopping by for wine tastings.

Casual Wine Tasting Experience on 3/27/19 2:00 PM

We went to more than 15 vineyards in Napa/Sonoma & this was my favorite. If you’re looking for a girls’ day this is a must do. The tasting room looks like a parlor. But it’s also a must do regardless. I went with my husband. We loved the newly released rose of Pinot noir & cider! Definitely do the cheese pairing! So delicious!! The outdoor area is gorgeous if it’s nice, & the service is top notch!

Farm to Table Tasting on 8/07/18 10:00 AM

A friend and I had a great time at Dutton Estate Winery with a food and wine pairing. Jeff was the perfect host, amiable and attentive but not hurried or intrusive. The food was imaginative and tasty, paired with their excellent wines. And the setting was comfortable and homey, like we were welcome guests to their home. I will do this again the next time I visit the Sonoma region.

Our host was excellent in both his knowledge and enthusiasm for the Estate. There is not much to see at the facility, and the tour was brief, but the dialogue was great. The wines and the tasting went beyond good at times, and were a pleasant surprise.

Are you crazy? Dutton was closed on Monday as were all wineries because of the fire. So we could not go. So your survey makes absolutely no sense. Why would you send this automated survey instead of disabling the automatic distribution for the week?

All Dutton personnel with whom my group interacted achieved the right balance of professionalism, graciousness and care. All were very knowledgeable. None suffered from the fatigue of hosting visitors I experience at other appointment - only wineries.

Had a very nice experience tasting wine & small plates at Dutton Estate Winery. We had a party of 10, and they were nice enough to accommodate all of us on a Friday morning. The tasting room would normally be a little tight if shared with other groups, but it worked out perfectly for us! Unfortunately it was a rainy day so we didn't get to see the gardens.
