5.0
#9 of 16 in Wineries in Santa Rosa
We are a small, boutique winery in Sonoma County producing Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Grenache, and Roussanne. We have elected to prize quality over all other factors. Simply put, we think wine should taste great. We are committed to deepening the general appreciation of and accessibility to remarkable wines and are tireless in our pursuit of quality.

Joe Donelan cultivated a wine appreciation for nearly 30 years before combining a passion for relationships and wine by partnering to form Pax Wine Cellars with the 2000 vintage. Now under the family name, Donelan Wines, we are committed to producing inimitable wines that showcase the individuality and splendor of Sonoma County terroir.

Our family believes that everyone deserves to experience a great bottle of wine, whether you’re an enthusiast with an extensive cellar collection, food and wine lover seeking out unforgettable epicurean delights, or entirely new to the world of wine. Fueling the efforts of every member of our team is a genuine desire to guide others on their discovery of great wine.

  • A really friendly and helpful family run winery. What makes them even better is the quality of their wines.
