Dan and Cindy Marca studied viticulture through courses from University of California at Davis, Oregon State University and Chemeketa Community College's Northwest Viticulture Center in Salem. Ten years later, in 2006, they bought a 15-acre property near Jacksonville in the Rogue Valley. They named the estate Dancin Vineyards after the first three letters of each of their names.
The site has a unique exposure making it suitable for Pinot Noir. The vineyard is shaded for up to two hours a day at the hottest time of the day at an elevation of 1,500 to 1,700 feet.
The wines are made by winemaker Linda Donovan from Pallet Wine Company in Medford. She has experience with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay at Flowers Vineyard & Winery on the Sonoma Coast.
A Tuscan style tasting room has impressive views of the Cascade Range and a wine cave houses barreled and bottled wines.
