Doukénie Winery strives to produce the finest wines possible and to give our patrons an educational and memorable experience. As many wineries began, everything was done in the basement of the main house, ie bottling with a gravity fed bottler, hand corking with a single corker, labeling by hand with the equivalent of Elmer's Glue, and finally heat capping with a hair dryer. Our family then went on to expand the winery under the name of Windham. Our family then went on to expand the winery under the name of Windham.
In 2000, we realized that the production of wine was a significant project and a formal winemaker was brought on board and eventually transitioned to our present winemaker (Sebastien Marquet). We are now producing approximately 4,000 to 5,000 cases of quality wine per year from 40 acres of vines. Our goal is to continue producing small quantities of superior wines with the intention of making Doukénie a destination for those interested in a beautiful country setting and to experience wines of excellence.
