  • What we love

    PRIE Vineyards’ 2017 Dornfelder is outstanding, and it’ll surprise you. Though its deep color and aromas speak of richness, it’s actually quite elegant and weightless on the palate – the tannins are not excessive, it's low in alcohol and not particularly acidic, and its layering of flavors is impeccable. Delicious blueberry pie flavors combine so well with its savory, zesty qualities. PRIE’s Dornfelder is something new to fall in love with. Only 48 cases made!

About this Wine

Of all the bottles we offer on Pollux, we derive the most personal satisfaction from sharing “secret” insider wines. By this we mean limited releases quietly cherished by sommeliers and industry insiders, not for their high prices or scores, but because of how they way over-deliver on quality for a modest price. PRIE’s Dornfelder is one of these special wines. Enjoy!

For pairing ideas, Dornfelder wines are particularly delicious with pot roasts and pork.

Drink now through 2025.

“We jumped at the chance to start PRIE because we like a challenge, and the wine has gone beyond even what we expected.”


If you’re not yet familiar with PRIE, most likely it’s because this is a relatively new, artisanal style winery; established in Lodi in 2015. Owners John and Lisa Gash were lured to Lodi by the opportunity to purchase an 8.5-acre vineyard, where they built a working winery and sleek, cozy tasting room. PRIE's diverse and dynamic wines, many of which have already earned glowing reviews and plaudits from industry insiders, are not to be missed!
