Dancing Coyote Wines gets its name from a group of coyotes that enjoy chewing on the irrigation lines in the vineyards. According the winery’s lore, “Following these scandalous acts, they have been known on occasion to join paws and dance around, howling at the moon in celebration.”
The wines are produced in a historic building that was originally built in 1868 when it functioned as a granary. The facility began producing Brandy, Port, and vinegar in the early 19th century, and is now used to make premium-quality table wines.
Dancing Coyote’s current production includes Chenin Blanc, Albarino, Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, Verdelho, Petite Sirah, Cha Cha (blend of Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc), and Tango (blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Malbec).
