Welcome to J Dusi Wines

A family tradition with a new perspective.

I was born and raised on the Dusi Vineyard where my grandfather Dante taught me the old world Italian style of winemaking.

My family’s heritage dates back to the early 1920’s, where grape growing has been a craft that has deep roots in the Dusi family.  The farming practices that were implemented by my great-grandparents eighty years ago, are still the standard that we follow today.  The unique, hand crafted quality of J Dusi Wines results from my intimate involvement in every step of the process: working in the vineyard, driving the tractor, hand picking my own fruit, crushing the grapes and fermenting the juice from the bins to the barrels to the bottle.  One thing that I know for sure; winemaking is part science, part art and 100% passion.

I take great pride in blending tradition with progress.  My family has partnered together to purchase other vineyards, with different grape varietals, so with an adventurous spirit, I am able to produce more hand crafted wines to highlight my “spice rack” in the cellar.

My name is Janell Dusi.  My true passion is Zinfandel.  My label is J Dusi Wines.  I am a farmer and I am a winemaker.  I continue a legacy and also the dream: A family tradition with a new perspective.
