The Donum Estate defines a place and a project.
Our "ultimate pinot noir project" is based on a Burgundian grand cru model, with the goal of producing the finest pinot noir and chardonnay.
Donum was established in 2001 and, since 2014, has presented large-scale sculptures throughout its 200-acre vineyard, a pastoral landscape interspersed with 150-year-old olive trees, beehives and an organic farm.
In 2018, the sculpture collection officially launched with about 40 major works by artists from across the globe, including Ai Weiwei, Yayoi Kusama, Louise Bourgeois, Keith Haring, Zhan Wang, Elmgreen & Dragset, Yue Minjun, Jaume Plensa, Subodh Gupta, Danh Vo, Richard Hudson and Tracey Emin, among others. In 2019, Sonic Mountain (Sonoma) marks the continued growth of the collection, which was further augmented earlier this year with the commissioning of Subodh Gupta's People Tree, a striking 10-meter high stainless-steel banyan tree with utensils as leaves, following its unital display at La Monnaie de Paris.
"We are thrilled with the latest addition to Donum. It is a privilege to work with artists like Doug, who responded to Donum's landscape in every detail and created an experience that draws our attention to the elements of the environment that animate both wine and art. I know we will spend many a day listening to the hypnotic soundtrack Doug has composed in collaboration with nature. We welcome everyone to come experience Sonic Mountain (Sonoma), our wines and the rest of the collection." - Allan and Mei Warburg, Owners of The Donum Estate
