The Dreaming Tree
When Dave Matthews and Sean McKenzie first met, they realized they had a few things in common, like a passion for making wine at least as strong as their passion for drinking it.
They set out into wine country, looking for a way to make quality wines accessible to everyone. Along the way, they found inspiration in the down-to-earth characters and unforgettable flavors that give the region its rare kind of charm.
Although wine growing was introduced to California by the Spanish in the 18th century, it wasn’t until 1976 that the state’s wines gained global attention. That year, California was invited to participate in The Judgment of Paris, competing against the world’s best wines, and subsequently stunned all of Europe, sweeping both the red and wine categories.
