About This Winery
Dutch Henry Winery is the living epitome of quality over quantity. This little plot of 22 acres specializes in small lots of handcrafted wines from single vineyards, producing ultra premium wines that are certified organic. But don’t be intimidated. Owner Scott Chafen likes to take a laid back approach to sharing his passion for wine. He put in a bocce ball court and rustic wooden picnic benches for his guests to enjoy. He delights in the stone cave he had built for his barrels, a charming 4,500 square foot comfortable space with olive trees growing over the entrance. He’ll even let you bring your dog to the picnic tables.
The winery is a low ranch house in earth tones that blend perfectly with the gentle hilly vineyards. Here you will find the assortment of Pugs, Scotties, and Domestic Long Hairs that accompany the owner in his rounds of the organic farm and vineyard. If you won’t be tasting your wines in the rustic garden, you will be relaxing in an elegant cave that sports chandeliers and rounded stucco walls.
There are a couple of options for enjoying the Dutch Henry Winery. There is a reserve tasting in the Cave Dining Room that accompanies a tour of the cave and the winery. There is a current release tasting that is held every day, though they ask that you call ahead if you have a group bigger than 4. There is also a tour of the cave that comes with a tasting of 5 or 6 wines. If you enjoy down to Earth luxury, Dutch Henry should be on your itinerary.
