Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot."Premiering in the 2005 vintage, Dancing Hares on Howell Mountain is owned by Paula Brooks and Bob Cook, and has the formidable wine team of David Abreu, Andy Erickson and Michel Rolland growing and creating a pair of wines. Dancing Hares and second wine Mad Hatter are both red blends. Total production is fewer than 1000 cases. Quality is exceptionally high.

"We came into this business loving wine and loving Napa but also knowing that we wanted to work with the most respected people in the business – if they would have us! Over the years we have come to not only thoroughly enjoy the members of our team, we have become friends. What better combination to produce something of which we are all very proud." "Since arriving in Napa in 1994, I have been drawn to wines derived from special vineyard sites. The Dancing Hares vineyard certainly has all of the elements that will lead to a very compelling wine. In my time here in the Napa Valley I have also been lucky to work with talented and passionate people. Meeting Bob and Paula, and seeing their serious commitment to the vineyard, it was easy to see that we would work well together." Andy has worked with some of Napa Valley’s premiere wine producers, including Newton Vineyard, Spottswoode, and Harlan Estate. He was the winemaker at Staglin Family Vineyard for the 2001 and 2002 vintages. Since that time Andy has taken on several winery clients, including Screaming Eagle, Dalla Valle, Arietta, Ovid and Dancing Hares Vineyard. Read less
