J Dusi tasting room now open
Janell Dusi opens new J Dusi Wines tasting room
Janell Dusi is opening her new tasting room Labor Day weekend from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., she announced on Twitter.
She had recently announced to wine club members the opening of a new tasting room for J Dusi Wines. The tasting room is located on Highway 46 West at the former Edward Sellers Vineyards and Wines property, which closed recently.
“Finally, I am opening up a tasting room with my own production facility in Paso Robles,” says Dusi. She is a local farmer and winemaker with deep family roots in the local wine region. Her specialty is zinfandel. Previously she Dusi had offered tastings at events around Paso Robles.
This is a soft opening of the tasting room. Grapes should be rolling in shortly after, she says. “If you are out and about, stop in and check out the new facility. We will be processing fruit all through September and October and the tasting room has a great viewing window in to the cellar where you can watch all of harvest.”
The new J Dusi Wines tasting room is located at 1401 Hwy 46 West, Paso Robles, CA 93446.
About Janell Dusi
Janell Dusi was born and raised on the Dusi Vineyard where her grandfather Dante taught her the old world Italian style of winemaking.
Dusi’s family’s heritage dates back to the early 1920’s, where grape growing has been a craft that has deep roots in the Dusi family. The farming practices that were implemented by her great-grandparents eighty years ago, are still the standard that they follow today. The unique, hand crafted quality of J Dusi Wines results from her intimate involvement in every step of the process: working in the vineyard, driving the tractor, hand picking my own fruit, crushing the grapes and fermenting the juice from the bins to the barrels to the bottle.
“One thing that I know for sure; winemaking is part science, part art and 100% passion,” Dusi says.
“I take great pride in blending tradition with progress. My family has partnered together to purchase other vineyards, with different grape varietals, so with an adventurous spirit, I am able to produce more hand crafted wines to highlight my ‘spice rack’ in the cellar.”
