At the helm of DuPuis is winemaker Wells Guthrie, who cut his teeth in Northern Rhone and Burgundy, and later went on to be the winemaker for Copain wines. DuPuis (translation: of wells) is his passion project that seeks to showcase the purity of fruit in Anderson Valley. With no new oak, these wines are bursting with flavors of ripe black and red fruit, and are a true distillation of the character of the region.
