Dan and Cindy Marca
DANCIN is a love story.
Romance and wine have gone hand in hand for centuries and it’s only fitting that the genesis of DANCIN has its roots in a love story. The tale of Dan and Cindy has all the markings of a great love story. It’s a blend of passion, serendipity, and miracle meetings, and is best heard while sipping wine in the couple’s tasting room. Suffice to say, inclement weather and a chance meeting twice on the same day brought the pair together. They were married after three months and have been DANCIN ever since! Within a year of their storybook meeting in 1995, Dan and Cindy (DANCIN) 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 northeast facing slope, benefitting 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.
