The DuMOL Dirt The building block of great winegrowing.

We share great wine with you, but we’ve never shared all the dirty details of how great wine is made...until now.

The DuMOL Dirt is a quarterly publication taking you—issue by issue—into the vineyard, under the ground, into the bottle, and onto your table. Every element, from soil to barrel and everything in between, impacts the quality of the wine.
