J Dusi Winery
1401 46 West, Paso Robles
Female-owned and operated, J Dusi Wines is guided by its head winemaker and owner, Janell Dusi. Janell was born and raised on the Dusi Vineyard, where her grandfather Dante taught her the old-world Italian style of winemaking. The Dusi family’s heritage and history in Paso Robles Wine Country dates back to the early 1920s, where grape growing has been a craft that has deep roots in the Dusi family. The sustainable farming practices implemented by Janell’s great-grandparents ninety years ago are still the standard we follow today. The unique, hand-crafted quality of J Dusi Wines results from Janell’s intimate involvement in every step of the process: working in the vineyard, driving the tractor, handpicking her fruit, crushing the grapes, and fermenting the juice from the bins to the barrels to the bottle. One thing Janell knows is winemaking is part science, part art, and 100% passion.

Janell takes great pride in blending tradition with progress. The Dusi family grows grape varietals, including Grenache, Mourvèdre, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Clairiette Blanche. Along with the Classic Zinfandel, Carignane, and Petite Sirah with an adventurous spirit, Janell can produce more hand-crafted wines to highlight her “spice rack” in the cellar. The Dusi Family’s true passion is Zinfandel. Janell Dusi is a farmer, and she is a winemaker. She continues the legacy and also the dream: A family tradition with a new perspective.
