About AvinoDos Wines

AvinoDos is about new beginnings. It’s about the hopes and dreams of two farm kids from very different backgrounds but who share a common, simple bond to family and foundations in agriculture.

Read More

Friendship forms the foundation of AvinoDos, friendship that started over good wine. Our founder, Dan Dexter enjoys everything about wine, from working the earth to labeling bottles. But mostly he enjoys sharing wine with friends. That’s the fun part.

When he seized the entrepreneurial spirit of the West and launched AvinoDos, two things became immediately clear: First, they needed to make good wine that was true to the essence of Napa Valley. Second, they wanted to create a winery that embodied the friendships that helped launch it. A winery where you can relax and experience wine, regardless of how much or how little you know about it.

So, he created a winery that invites you to do more than just taste the Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Zinfandel and Sauvignon Blanc. You’re invited to share the experiences and connect with the people who make it happen. You’re invited to join our wine club, where you can enjoy catered dinners, special offers and other events. You’re invited to enjoy small, personal wine tours where you can taste wine still aging in the barrel. Come at the right time and you might be invited to pick grapes in the fields or roll up your sleeves and crush grapes to make wine.

When you experience these things for yourself, you’ll understand what inspired our founder to uncork his ambitions and launch AvinoDos, or “wine from two.” Maybe you’ll even catch the entrepreneurial spirit. Hopefully you’ll gain a greater appreciation for wine – and make a few new friends.

Our private tasting was just perfect. The Wine Master gave us great information, was very interesting, and had a wealth of experience. The wines were excellent and reasonably priced. The owner was very friendly and gave us a tour of the production area. All three of us in our party were impressed and glad we made a reservation at AvinoDos Winery.

Cozy place in an unexpected area for wine tasting. We were hosted by Victor and we loved meeting Dan and having him show us the process, answer all sort of questions about AvinoDos, wine making and his style. We even got to try different vintages from the barrel!

Had a wonderful experience. Knowledgeable staff and owner. Private tasting complete with 5 wines, crackers, cheese and salami. Tiny facility in industrial park but don’t let that fool you! Delicious wines and Victor (sommelier with 42 yrs experience) was eager to teach us. Dan, owner/wine maker, capped off our day with special barrel tasting. Can’t wait to go back!

Spent a week in Napa and Sonoma and AvinoDos was by far the best personal experience . Victor was fantastic very knowledgeable, taught us alot about wines. Dan even came and talked to us about his winemaking and we had a tasting right out of the barrel. Highly recommend AvinoDos and their wine are excellent. Our party of 4 bought 14 bottles and we also joined their wine club.

Fantastic experience at AvinoDos! Husband & I went on our 23rd anniv and met Dan and Victor, who made our day spectacular. Truly excellent wines, mostly single varietals, full of flavor - outstanding Sav Blanc, Cab, Malbec! I was recently inspired by Gustavo Brambila's story, and when I learned his son Lon was part owner of AvinoDos, it made the visit even more special. Joined the wine club!

Victor was excellent. Having a sommelier as your host is very educational. We learned so much more than a regular tasting would have provided. We also met the owner, Dan. His passion for wine making is obvious. His strong work ethic was evident by his purple stained hands. When your heart is in every bottle, it shows. We look forward to enjoying our first club shipment.

I was greeted by Victor, and he did a wonderful job introducing me to the wines at Avinodos. I got to meet Dan and watch them crush a batch of grapes. Altogether I was there for an hour and a half and felt like I'd made two new friends in addition to enjoying some great wines. A great experience!

Industrial setting but beautifully designed space. Interesting, educational presentation. Perhaps less of a match for parties who feel highly knowledgeable; we'd consider ourselves reasonably "savvy" and found it quite delightful. Excellent wine, truly.

While in Napa my girlfriends and I did appx 9 different wine tastings and Avinodos was hands down the best experience! Very intimate setting with a one on one tasting with the owner Dan as well as the wine maker Gustavo which was amazing. We got to do a barrel tasting and sample unreleased wines. I would highly recommend this winery to anyone. I will definitely be going back next time I am in Napa

This was the first wine tasting for us in Napa and, after many others, still one of our favorite. They have a nice selection of some great wines. And, Dan was wonderful! He was knowledgeable and helped us understand the basics without making us feel uncomfortable as novices. Tasty wines and a great tasting experience. Thanks Dan!

The experience was amazing one of our best in the 3 days of Napa and Sonoma. We spent time with Dan and he taught us a lot about wine tasting. We got to learn more about our favorite type of wine Malbec and they even gave us some yummy blue cheese to try with the Malbec, delicious! We signed up for the wine club and can't wait to get our first shipment. Steve and Melinda from Minnesota

Our visit to Avinodos Wines was fantastic. We thoroughly enjoyed the wine and meeting everyone that was hard at work that day. We were fortunate to be there during harvest time so we were able see part of the process first hand. We learned so much about the wine making process. Mr. Dexter treated us like family. We are looking forward to future shipments of Avinodos through their wine club!
