Paul Dolan ’72, a man known for his generosity, allegorical speeches, and constant pocket dials, died June 6, 2023. Paul grew up playing hide-and-seek at his family’s winery and later found great success in the wine industry—he was named winemaker of the year by the Los Angeles Times in 1991. He founded the Paul Dolan Wine brand, showcasing the remarkable potential of biodynamic farming in producing award-winning wines. Throughout his career, he strove to leave the world a better place than he found it. As such, he held biodynamic camps at Dark Horse Vineyards, and he was part of the Regenerative Organic Alliance which strove to establish the foundations of true organic farming.
