Behind the photo:
This is one of the photos in our 2019 Temecula Valley Wineries Calendar. This is Danza Del Sol, a 40-acre vineyard, Danza del Sol Winery is located on the De Portola Trail.
Their location is amazing and it makes getting a good photograph effortless. Sunset is the best time to visit. This photo was taken during a storm as I was ” cloud chasing ” I shoot here often because of the layout of the vines, the barrel room, the Italian Cypress and the sunset is always positioned just right.
Originally planted with Zinfandel and Sauvignon Blanc vines in 1972. If you roam the vineyard you will come across large, beautiful, old vines. The vineyard is planted with the following varietals: Cabernet Franc, Tempranillo, Gewürztraminer, Sangiovese, Syrah, Viognier, Orange Muscat, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Sauvignon Blanc.
Their must try estate wine is : 2014 Super Tuscan. 60% Sangiovese, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc
