Dennis De La Montanya: Winemaker, Grower, Proprietor
Dennis and his wife Tina founded De La Montanya Estate Vineyards in 1995. The winery produces more than 30 different wines ranging from 25 to 250 cases each, totaling about 4,500 cases per year. Each wine is bottled from estate-grown, hand selected grapes from De La Montanya vineyards spanning five appellations from the Sonoma Coast to Lake County.
A colorful legacy of Northern California pioneers, farmers and purveyors of wine has transcended seven generations of the De La Montanya family. Successfully having transferred the experience in viticulture and farming into winemaking, they now welcome friends and family to their showcase winery, the Barn on Foreman Lane in Healdsburg.
For those who have visited DLM, or even better, are members of the Club, you know that Dennis and Tina love what they do and more importantly have fun at it.
In 2006 Dennis partnered with Jonathan Cain and Journey to release several wines to benefit Bay Area children's charities. 100% of the proceeds are donated and, to date, the sale of those wines have raised more than $40,000 for chartiy.
In 2008, De La Montanya, Cain, and a third partner Daryl Groom launched Finale Wines in order to blend the arts of music and wine making.
