One of the people responsible for introducing Dutton Ranch to much of the world happens not to be a Dutton, but rather is their partner and winemaker Dan Goldfield. After a successful career as the winemaker for La Crema and Hartford Court, Dan followed his heart and partnered with his favorite grape growing family. I caught up with Dan recently at the this year’s Sonoma Wine Country weekend and asked him a few questions.
