Sonja Magdevski is winemaker/owner of Casa Dumetz Wines, a small boutique producer in love with Grenache and specializing in Santa Barbara County Rhone varietals. Her wine journey began in 2004 a er she planted a half-acre of Pinot Noir vines in Malibu. From there several love stories began that include 3 primary ingredients: ground, grapes and grit.
Born and raised in Farmington Hills, Michigan, to Macedonian parents, winemaking was far removed from the list of desirable professions her parents had hoped for. After her undergraduate work at the University of Michigan for Political Science and her Master’s from Michigan State University in Journalism, Sonja received a Fulbright Scholarship to study Ethnic Issues in the Republic of Macedonia.
Her winemaking education has come from on the job experience, working with various winemakers, studying vineyards and the
Viticulture and Enology program at Allan Hancock Community College.
