Dolce, Napa Valley
The only winery devoted to solely producing late harvest wine in North America. Dolce have been recognized as one of the highest quality wines of its kind. Winning awards and acclaim from around the world, Dolce truly is a one of a kind wine.
By its nature, Dolce is a rare wine that cannot be produced every year. Dolce is made when a natural, beneficial mold called botrytis cinerea attacks the grapes on the vine, while evaporating the water content and concentrating the sugars, acids and flavors. The inaugural 1985 vintage yielded only six barrels, and production grew to nine barrels in 1986. The 1989 vintage was the first commercial release of Dolce and it was introduced to the market in 1992. Dolce, late harvest dessert wine, is produced from its own 27-acre Napa Valley vineyard. The land is located in an area known as Coombsville, east of the city of Napa, and is situated at the base of the Vaca Mountains. Currently, 17 acres are in production and the additional 10 acres will produce fruit in the next few years.
