    Winemaker Notes

    A well-balanced, dry white wine with intriguing scents of green apple, pear and honeydew melon. This lighter-bodied wine has a bright crisp, mineral finish.

    This clean and crisp Pinot Grigio is best served chilled. It pairs well with light flavored foods such as mild cheeses, fresh fruit, grilled chicken and pasta dishes, like pesto and risotto. A wonderful wine for summer-time gatherings.

    Image of winery
    Dancing Coyote is a family run, owned and operated vineyard located in a beautiful stretch of land in California’s Clarksburg appellation. They've been farming in the Delta region along the Sacramento River for five generations. These days they keep busy nurturing over 600 acres of exquisite wine grapes in the ideal climate and soil of the Sacramento Valley. This family’s devotion to producing wines of exceptional quality and character is unwavering. So, it’s no surprise they are involved in the winemaking process every step of the way. From the growing and harvesting of the grapes at the peak of their flavor, to crushing, aging and handcrafting the final product. In short, winemaking is this family’s greatest passion, so it goes without saying that we’re in it for the long haul.

    The vineyards just inland from the Sacramento River Delta, along the deep banks of the Sacramento River, comprise the Clarksburg AVA. The River Delta channels in cold air and fog from the Pacific Ocean creating a cooling effect in this area. Warm summer days quickly change to chilly evenings and make a great environment for grape growing. While a range of grape varieties grow here, Chenin blanc stands out the most, distinguishing itself for the appellation.

    The Clarksburg Wine Growers and Vintners Association, made up of nearly 50 grower members and over a dozen wineries, has been working since the late 1980s to promote the high quality wine of its region.

    Pinot Gris/Grigio

    View all wine

    Showing a unique rosy, purplish hue upon full ripeness, this “white” variety is actually born out of a mutation of Pinot noir. The grape boasts two versions of its name, as well as two generally distinct styles. In Italy, Pinot grigio achieves most success in the mountainous regions of Trentino and Alto Adige as well as in the neighboring Friuli—all in Italy’s northeast. France's Alsace and Oregon's Willamette Valley produce some of the world's most well-regarded Pinot gris wine. California produces both styles with success.

    In the Glass

    Pinot Gris is naturally low in acidity but full ripeness is necessary to achieve and showcase its signature flavors and aromas of stone fruit, citrus, honeysuckle, pear and almond. Alsatian styles are aromatic (think rose and honey), richly textured and sometimes relatively higher in alcohol compared to its Italian counterparts. As Pinot Grigio in Italy, the style is often much lighter, charming and fruit driven.

    Perfect Pairings

    The viscosity of a typical Alsatian Pinot Gris allows it to fit in harmoniously with the region's rich foods like pork, charcuterie and foie gras. Pinot Grigio, on the other hand, with its lean, crisp, citrusy freshness, works well as an aperitif wine or with seafood and subtle chicken dishes.

    Sommelier Secret

    Given the color of its berries and aromatic and characterful potential if cared for as it is allowed to fully ripen, the Pinot grigio variety is actually one that is commonly used to make "orange wines." An orange wine is a white wine made in the red wine method, i.e. with fermentation on its skins. This process leads to a wine with more ephemeral aromas, complexity on the palate and a pleasant, light orange hue.
