Winery Details

Our Website

De Tierra Vineyards began in 1998 as an organic grape-growing operation in the Salinas Valley by Tom Russell. Russell was passionate about wine and farming, and wanted to explore the benefits of organic farming with wine grapes. He teamed up with friend and winemaker of Vignalta Italy, Lucio Gomiero, and developed an organic vineyard in the Corral de Tierra Valley. The 40-acre vineyard is just 15 miles from the Salinas Valley. It was through these efforts, De Tierra Vineyards was born.

Today, De Tierra is run by Dan McDonnal and Alix Bosch. De Tierra is a growing wine business with distribution to the majority of the continental US. Our focus is on continuing to create excellent wines from the Russell Estate Vineyard and other selected vineyards in and around Monterey County. All of our wines are available for tasting in our Carmel-by-the-Sea tasting room.
