The Story

The Land
The Dancing Crow Chardonnay comes from the west side of the Lake County AVA, near the town of Lakeport. At an elevation of only 1,350 feet, these vines are planted in a low-lying area, compared to surrounding vineyards. This is one of the coolest microclimates in the county – making it ideal for growing Chardonnay grapes. During summer months, Lake County sees hot daytime temperatures; yet, the vines are able to recover from the heat of the day and respire at night due to the evening’s cool coastal breezes, which are pulled across the Mayacamas mountain range by the vast size of Clear Lake. This distinctive combination of factors (1350 ft. elevation, cool microclimate, hot days and cold nights) all
work in concert to create a unique terroir that allows us to emulate the beautiful Chardonnays of Chablis at 13% alcohol – highlighting floral & pome fruit flavors with a refreshingly bright acidity.

Brand Story

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.
