THE DVO STORY
Tradition matters. It binds together families and friendships across backgrounds, languages, and continents. It informs values and deepens knowledge. It is also foundational to the philosophies of two storied wineries: Napa Valley’s Dalla Valle and Tuscany’s Ornellaia.
Maya and Naoko Dalla Valle and Axel Heinz and Giovanni Geddes da Filicaja are longtime friends and stewards for the legacies of their estates, half a world away. They possess the intimate, innate sensitivity to place and process that generates soulful wines for each label, vintage after vintage.
It is passion, personality, and a drive to create something distinctive and compelling that led Maya, Naoko, Axel, and Giovanni to found DVO. If Dalla Valle and Ornellaia embody the best of their respective traditions, DVO is a testament to a new expression of those elements. Old World elegance and New World freedom; Napa Valley and Tuscany; looking back while always looking forward: DVO is the alchemy of all those things and more, applied to Napa Valley fruit with magical results.
