The Donum Estate is both a place and a unique project.
The Donum Estate is both a place and a unique project. In fact, it's three places. Donum Ranch is a 200-acre property with 70 acres devoted to vines located on gently rolling hills that rise up from San Pablo Bay in Carneros. Less than a mile away is the venerable 20-acre Ferguson Block. And the 11 acres of Nugent Vineyards lie to the north in the Russian River Valley. We farm all three vineyards, which provide superlative estate grown fruit for our "ultimate Pinot Noir project." Based on a Burgundian grand cru model, this program's goal is to produce the finest Pinot Noir possible.
