The standard for American fine wine

Duckhorn Vineyards has set the standard for American fine wine. Inspired by the Bordeaux style of winemaking, this family of wines helped launch Merlot's popularity in the United States, and prides itself on the highest quality and attention to detail. In fact, each winery has its own dedicated winemaker.

Meet the winemaker

Renee Ary became the fourth winemaker in the four-decade history of Duckhorn Vineyards in 2014. Like the two acclaimed winemakers before her, Renee spent years working alongside her predecessors, honing her craft, refining her gifted palate and mastering the Duckhorn Vineyards style. Today, with an approach that balances artistry, science and a deep respect for the viticultural side of winemaking, Renee guides the entire Duckhorn Vineyards portfolio, crafting wines that offer structure and sophistication, as well as a deep and purposeful sense of place.
