Make Friends with the DANCIN Winery Next Door

Behind any truly great wine country community lies a nearby winery. A place to meet friends for great wine, great food and great atmosphere. For The Vineyards at Stage Pass, that winery is DANCIN, just a stone’s throw away. And before long, there will be a direct walking trail between the two sites. What better way to get to know your neighbors! Make Stage Pass your new home and DANCIN your new winery.

A lifetime of happiness (and award-winning pinot noirs) rooted in love

Theirs is a modern fairy tale. When inclement weather forced a chance meeting not once but twice on the same day, Dan and Cindy knew it was fate. Married three months later, the Marcas took a serious interest in the wine industry. Enology and viticulture classes. Looking at land. Nothing seemed to click, until the day they discovered southern Oregon and the Rogue Valley. The rest, as they say, is history.

Now 25 years after saying their “I do’s,” Dan and Cindy (put the first three letters of their names together and you get DANCIN) have cultivated a top-rated, award-winning winery — known for not only pinot noir, but also chardonnay, barbera, sangiovese and zinfandel, along with syrah grapes.

Boston has its Cheers, Stage Pass has its DANCIN

Much like Stage Pass is no ordinary neighborhood, DANCIN is no ordinary winery. Looking for a glass (or bottle) of your favorite pinot, rosé, chardonnay or port? Thinking about a dinner of wine-themed bites, fresh salads and artisan pizzas? It’s all ready and waiting, in a gorgeously relaxed setting with a multitude of seating areas — with names like The Terrace, The Fire Bars, The Piazza and The Cellar. And it’s all right in your own backyard. Visit DANCIN’s website here.
