Beyond the Bottle: Grindstone Wines, Where Tradition Meets Taste.

Meet Michael & Amy Doherty of Grindstone Wines in Arbuckle, Ca.

The Grindstone Wine's Story

In the heart of Colusa County, Grindstone Wines stands as a testament to the enduring legacy of the Doherty Family. What began as a modest 25-acre Syrah vineyard in 1997 has blossomed into a sprawling 150-acre expanse, spanning both Colusa and Yolo Counties. The Doherty Family, with its roots deeply embedded in multi-generational, diversified farming, has transformed their love for the land into a thriving "Vine to Glass" business.

Led by Michael and Amy Doherty, the family's commitment to quality and passion for winemaking led to the establishment of a tastefully designed tasting room in 2020. This charming space, overseen by dedicated family members, has become more than just a venue; it's a hub of local community engagement where sipping on locally grown wines and spending quality time with friends has become a cherished weekend tradition.

Grindstone Wines invites enthusiasts to embark on a journey through their vineyards, exploring the rich history and meticulous craftsmanship that goes into every bottle. As the sun sets over the picturesque landscapes of Colusa and Yolo Counties, the Doherty Family's dedication to preserving their agricultural heritage and sharing it with others is celebrated in every sip of their exceptional wines.
