About Dolce Winery

Dolce Late Harvest Wines

Dolce embraces a deceptively simple philosophy: the pursuit of perfection in the art of late harvest winemaking. Created in 1985 by the partners of Far Niente, its existence is the result of overcoming remarkable adversity and developing expertise that no one else in the U.S. has. Dolce stands as the pinnacle, where Mother Nature and craftsmanship combine to define luxury through a wine capable of flirting with your emotions like no other.

Purity of vision

With a classic blend of late harvest Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc, Dolce is dedicated to producing the perfect late harvest wine. Dolce has brought forth a wine in every vintage, yet in small, unpredictable quantities; witness to the incredible difficulties presented every year in the effort to make Dolce.

Producing a single late harvest wine

Dolce is an extraordinary wine bred from a combination of sunshine, soil, fog, expertise and dedication; a wondrous luxury, limited by nature to always being a gift of rarity. Dolce calls to mind key lime pie with its citrusy aromas, floral and creamy textures, and baking spice finish.
