Dancing Crow


One cool, Spring day in the shadow of Mt. Konocti, a family came to lay out their vineyard using straw to mark the vines. While feasting during their midday lunch they saw a murder of crows dancing around the straw, which made them laugh. Yet, when they looked again, the crows and the straw were gone. The family learned two things that day: be wary of dancing crows, and what to name their vineyard.

Sauvignon Blanc

There is a spirit of place within the Dancing Crow vineyard. The land itself is an exciting balance between untamed wilderness and thoughtful farming practices, with the end result being a Sauvignon Blanc that dances between the Old World and the New.

Cabernet Sauvignon

As the Crow flies... five miles southwest from our home vineyard are the deep, rust-colored soils of the Red Hills Appellations. This unique terroir is the outcome of ancient volcanic influences, warm days and cool nights and a 2100 ft. elevation, resulting in a mountain Cabernet with complex flavors and velvety tannins.
