One of the producers at the forefront of Sta. Rita’s Hills’ success is Dragonette Cellars. Winemaker Brandon Sparks-Gills, and brothers Steve and John Dragonette, select the region’s elite vineyards to make Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays of utter refinement and distinction.
The Duvarita Vineyard is in the far west of the region, sitting literally metres outside of the Sta. Rita Hills AVA boundary, and it is one of the most sought after vineyards. The steep slopes sit on a combination of ancient sand dunes and sandstone, producing wines of characteristic depth and intensity.
