DANCIN is a love story.
It is the marriage of science and art. The pairing of fine wine with delicious food, and the sincere passion of Dan and Cindy. DANCIN is a dynamic dance in harmony with soil, sun, ancient alchemy, modern technology and human touch. Our wines and vintages are named after movements within ballet, a form of dance wherein dedication and discipline are integral to the grace and beauty of the final performance. We invite you to join in the process. Taste the transformation. And above all, enjoy the dance!
Within a year of their storybook encounter in 1995, Dan and Cindy began researching wine and viticulture at UC Davis, and twelve years later, they discovered a perfect plot of land nestled within the forested foothills of southern Oregon, just outside of the gold rush community of Jacksonville. A northwest facing slope, benefiting from the late afternoon shade provided by the surrounding tall pines and cedars, it would become the perfect terroir for growing Pinot noir and Chardonnay with a sense of place.
Planted to seven distinct clones of Pinot noir and four different clones of Chardonnay, the vineyards are meticulously maintained through continual assessment during each and every facet of the growing season, making every effort to achieve vine balance. At the point of perfect ripeness, each cluster is hand harvested and sorted, first in the vineyard, and then twice more on the crushpad, as their limited production exquisite Pinot noirs and Chardonnays are hand-crafted using minimalist, old world techniques that complement the practices in the vineyard.
You are invited to join us on our journey as we discover the multi-faceted flavors of Pinot noir and Chardonnay, along with Barbera, Sangiovese, Syrah, Zinfandel and Port-style Pinot noir that we carefully and artfully produce!
Please note that DANCIN is a smoke-free property. Outside food or drinks are not permitted.
