Franc Dusak's Story
Franc may know every square inch of Sonoma Valley as your winemaker, but his deepest roots are in Slovenia. It's there 3 generations of Dusaks make wine – with Franc being the latest member of the family to carry on the tradition.
By day, Franc's the winemaker in charge production at your nakedwines.com Wine Studio. He oversees production for hundreds of Angel-funded wines... and thanks to your support, gets to make some for himself, too!
The next time you find yourself sipping some Dusak reds, take a look at the label details. Everything from the name "DVK," which stands for "Dusak Vinska Klet" – Franc's original family winery – to the image of the "Triglav," an iconic Slovenian mountain, pays tribute to the grand impact his family has had on his own winemaking journey.
Looks like his winemaking fate was in the stars – and on his birth certificate, too. All three generations of winemakers in the Dusak line have been named Franc!
