was founded in 1981 by two free-spirited, inquisitive winemakers: Deborah and Andrew Cutter. They built the winery with small production, gentle, gravity flow winemaking in mind. Duxoup wines are silky, fruity, and come from venerable vineyards. 

The wines express not only terroir, but the highly skilled work of the two owners, both experienced and respected for their independence and consistent quality.. The wines are rare, but well worth the effort to find. Duxoup produces a CharbonoDolcettoGamay NoirSangiovese, and Syrah. Their winery is their Dry Creek Valley home. Making their wines proves an intimate touch at every step. Their ½ acre Gamay vineyard grows right outside their home and the other vineyards are named for the Frediani and Teldeschi families that tend them. Theirs are fascinating wines of appealing character from varieties seldom planted to the area: Charbono, Gamay, Dolcetto, Sangiovese, and Syrah.

In the cellar, their 100+ barrels are not numbered but named; “Halley’s Comet” sits beside “Groucho” or “Harpo” –tipping their hat to the Marx Brothers Duck Soup, then there is “Uncle Dave” and of course “Pavarotti” named for their love of opera. These are real people and their wines reflect them as much as they do their terroir.
