In Italian, “Dono dal Cielo” means ‘Gift from Heaven’.

We are following our lifelong passion for that perfect balance of earth, sun and soil.  Dono dal Cielo was born in 2002 with our first 6,000 Zinfandel vines planted on 7 acres.  Secreted away in the graceful rolling hills of Newcastle. Dono dal Cielo means “A Gift from Heaven.” We welcome your family to become part of our Dono family!

VINEYARD TO TABLE…GRAPE TO GLASS

Our owner Karen “Mim” describes their vineyard as “sitting at the bottom of a teacup” with a 360 degree view of the foothills.  She says “it’s a phenomenon, a big growing garden”. She feels that this is such a gift, and we should treat it as a gift. She’s always thinking about how this will be a place for Newcastle to be proud of.

Picnic at the Vineyard:  We have an expansive outdoor space and outdoor seating overlooking our two beautiful vineyards.  We always suggest you bring a picnic blanket or lawn chairs as there is minimal outdoor seating.

Our Dono Crew:  Our Tasting Room Staff are the coolest!!  They are fun, witty, friendly and are here to educate you and to make sure you have the best experience possible.
