About The Donum Estate
Celebrating its 20th vintage, Donum’s mission is to produce the highest-quality Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in the Burgundian grand cru model from Donum’s Estate vineyards in Carneros, Russian River Valley and Anderson Valley. A passionate winemaking team overseen by winemaker Dan Fishman crafts only single-vineyard, single-appellation wines from small lots reflecting each unique, premier vineyard block. The Donum Estate comprises 200 picturesque acres north of San Pablo Bay in the Carneros wine region, featuring an open-air art sculpture collection with works from world-renowned artists and the Donum House for intimate tastings by appointment only.
Donum began placing monumental sculptures throughout the landscape in 2014. In 2018, the sculpture collection officially launched with over 40 major works by artists from across the globe, including Ai Weiwei, Yayoi Kusama, Louise Bourgeois, Keith Haring, Zhan Wang, Elmgreen & Dragset, Yue Minjun, Jaume Plensa, Subodh Gupta, Danh Vo, Richard Hudson and Tracey Emin, among others. Recent commissions from Doug Aitken — “Sonic Mountain (Sonoma)”, a wind chime installation which creates patterns of sound as wind moves through it
— and Subodh Gupta’s “People Tree,” a striking 10-meter high stainless-steel banyan tree with utensils as leaves, installed following its initial display at La Monnaie de Paris — marks the continued growth of the collection.
