dark horse ranch


Since 1998, Paul Dolan, with sons Heath and Jason, have owned their 160 acre Dark Horse Ranch vineyard. Home to varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Syrah, and Petite Sirah, the organic and certified biodynamic vineyard is only a few miles away from our Hopland estate on Old River Road south of Talmage. The vineyard sits along the banks of the Russian River and provides outstanding conditions for growing late ripening, sun thirsty varietals.  

“The vines reach into the soil for their essential needs: water to drink and food to eat. If the soil is full of microbiotic life and natural nutrients, the vine absorbs everything it needs to grow at a normal, healthy rate.” - Paul Dolan.
