  • What we love

    Gail’s 2019 Dry Rosé is inspired by the fresh and vibrant rosés of the Touraine in the Loire Valley. Aromatics of ruby red grapefruit and flavors of strawberries, watermelons and fennel. This dry rosé is calling for grilled veggies and pesto, grilled fish or oysters and the delicate scrape of tannin on the finish just tightens everything up. Bravo.

“To my palate, the wines that comprise the Gail and Doris lineup are thrilling. The Doris wines… are uncommonly distinctive for the price.” – Wine Editor, San Francisco Chronicle

Dan O'Brien

Founder + Winemaker


Dan O’Brien is the founder and winemaker behind Gail, a wine label exploring the vineyards & varietals of Sonoma Valley.

The first thing to know about Gail Wines is that they represent the best of California's emerging garagiste producers. It isn't often that you can catch a producer before the word is out, but Gail represents one of these rare opportunities. Gail is on the cusp on blowing up, big.

Dan O'Brien has worked throughout the wine industry, first starting in high-end restaurants in the east coast, eventually moving to San Francisco to start the Grand Award winning wine program at Cavallo Point. From there he started the Cultivar wine label, was the estate director for Long Meadow Ranch & Larkmead Vineyards, started the Hunt & Harvest wine label, and now is dedicating all of his time and efforts into Gail.
