In 1996, the husband-and-wife winemaking team of Michael and Anne Dashe founded Dashe Cellars, blending the two winemaker's combined 40+ years of experience that includes Chateau Lafite-Rothschild, Ridge Vineyards, Cloudy Bay, Far Niente, Chappellet, and Schramsberg. Drawing on their wealth of experience, they Dashes create vineyard-focused wines that capture the complexity and character of top vineyard sites throughout Sonoma County. 

Bien Nacido Vineyard

Michael and Anne are committed to creating wines that reflect the unique soil, climate and regional characteristics of world-class vineyards. Focusing on older vines, steep hillside locations, rocky soils and stressful growing conditions, they work closely with their growers to ensure careful vineyard management and low yields. WIth specific blocks set aside under long-term contract, Michael and Anne make the harvesting decisions for every vineyard. 

Michael applies traditional and natural winemaking techniques, including small-lot fermentation, the use of indigenous yeasts, and little-to-no fining or filtration. To moderate oak influence, the winery's barrel program incorporates large-format oak vessels including 900-gallon founders and 120-gallon punching, as well as older, traditional French barrels.
