Teira Wines

Teira Wines is a collaboration between Dan & Alexis Donahoe and winemaker William Knuttel. Named after Dan & Alexis’ daughters, Thea & Keira, TEIRA is a loose play on the term “Terrior” and “Tierra” – signifying their commitment to sustainable farming practices and resultant high quality wines. Their mission statement: “Passion, Quality, Value” is meant to communicate their dedication to producing fine wines that always impress, and are priced to drink on an everyday basis.

TEIRA’s “Woods Vineyard” estate vineyard is located at 400 West Dry Creek Road in Healdsburg and comprised of 20 acres of Sauvignon Blanc, 4 acres of Zinfandel and 32 acres of Merlot. Located on rich, clay loam soil right on the Dry Creek watershed, the vineyard was planted between 1992 and 2006.
