About Us

Founded in 1995 by owners Milan and Victoria Matulich, Dobra Zemlja Winery is the home of 'Big Amador Reds, No Lightweights'. Our tasting room is dug into the hillside underneath a rustic and historic barn. We cannot wait to welcome you to taste our wines in Amador County's first wine cave.

Meaning 'good earth' in Croatian, Dobra Zemlja (Doh-bra Zem-ya) produces hearty, unfiltered, and unfined wines that are made using the native yeast. It is all about letting the grape make the wine.
