Dancing Coyote Wines is a family owned and operated vineyard in the Clarksburg appellation. Their goal is to make delicious wine at a reat price. Their passion is to produce fun, new and different varietals and blends.
"Dancing Coyote is a family run, owned and operated vineyard located in a beautiful stretch of land in California’s Clarksburg appellation. We’ve been farming in the Delta region along the Sacramento River for five generations. These days we keep busy nurturing over 600 acres of exquisite wine grapes in the ideal climate and soil of the Sacramento Valley. Our family’s devotion to producing wines of exceptional quality and character is unwavering. So, it’s no surprise we are involved in the winemaking process every step of the way. From the growing and harvesting of our grapes at the peak of their flavor, to crushing, aging and handcrafting the final product. In short, winemaking is our family’s greatest passion, so it goes without saying that we’re in it for the long haul."
The Clarksburg appellation is quickly developing quite a following by wine connoisseurs and gastronomes alike, for the quality of its grapes. The growing conditions, exemplified by warm summer days and cool nights, make the climate ideal during the long growing season for a great many varietals. It’s during this critical summer season, that gentle maritime breezes from the San Francisco Bay work their magic on the grapes grown here.
"We have but one goal as winemakers: To produce some of the finest wines in the region. Wines that are true to the character of the fruit and the uniqueness of the terroir of the Clarksburg region. We ensure this by gentle handling through each step during vinification. By using techniques such as cold fermentation and limiting the influence of new oak, we preserve and showcase natural fruit flavors endemic to our vineyards. Ultimately, our end goal is to produce complex, elegant wines that are both easy to drink and food friendly.
This wine is a great alternative to Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. Enjoy it with seafood and chicken, pork or veal.
