We take a vineyard-driven approach to winemaking, to create a wine that reflects the vineyard and vintage, rather than forcing the wine into a specific style each year.  Jay DeWitt is not only an owner of Dumas Station, but also our Vineyard Manager and Winemaker.

Similarities among our wines comes from using fruit from the same vineyards year after year, rather than a specific winemaking style. Using the same terroir showcases the effect that mother nature has on our vines from year to year, creating a unique wine each vintage.

Because of this commitment to quality, we may even skip a wine one year. For example, in 2009 we did not produce our Estate Cabernet Sauvignon or Estate Merlot and instead put this juice into our Cow Catcher Red to make one of the best red blends we’ve ever made.
