Dancing Coyote Winery
The Dancing Coyote Winery is located in the small community of Acampo in Lodi, California. Lodi is approximately 30 miles south of Sacramento off of CA-99. The tasting room is open Friday -Sunday 11am – 5pm. It’s a bit weird to get into their tasting room but trust the directions, its back there.
Dancing Coyote is an interesting winery in that it is located in Acampo which is a part of the Lodi appellation but their wines are a Clarksburg appellation. It’s a simple concept but not seen very often. Dancing Coyote has a winery and facility in Acampo but their actual vines are in Clarksburg. The two areas are only about 20 miles apart but they are very different regions even though they share some very similar micro-climates.
The tasting room is open and airy making it great for large groups with plenty of place to spread out and even sit at tables. Dancing Coyote has multiple wines for “wine newbies,” especially their whites. Not only are they great for the developing wine palate but they have a great selection that is easy on the pocket book.
