Randy Dunn

Dunn established his reputation at Caymus Vineyards as their first enologist from 1975 to 1985, where his Cabernet Sauvignons became the benchmark for the industry. In addition, his artistry shaped other premium wineries that now enjoy an acclaimed place in the sun (Pahlmeyer, La Jota, Palmaz among others). His winery Dunn Vineyards produced it’s first wine in 1979.

Randy is known not only for his famous wines, but for his philosophy on how to make wine. He does it his way – leaving the floor of the Napa Valley “to corn and melon farmers,” he tends his vines in the red stony soil of Howell Mountain. Today he spends much of his free time fighting back the development that threatens to clear the Valley’s forested hillsides.
