About McCormack Ranch:

McCormack Ranch was established by Dan McCormack in 1896 and is now run by his granddaughter Jeanne McCormack and her husband Al Medvitz. Jeanne and Al continue the commitment to sustainable farming established by Jeanne’s grandfather over a century ago – the animals are pasture-fed and range free, grazing in large (200 – 300 acre) pastures, given no antibiotics or hormones and handled using low-stress, humane methods.

McCormack Ranch consists of 3,700 acres and lies in the historic Montezuma Hills along the Sacramento River. The ranch produces dry land wheat and barley in rotation with grass-fed sheep and grass-fed Boer goats. Jeanne and Al are dedicated to educating people about local food production, conservation and sustainability.

About Dancing Coyote:

Dancing Coyote is a family run, owned and operated vineyard located in a beautiful stretch of land in California’s Clarksburg appellation. They’ve been farming in the Delta region along the Sacramento River for five generations. These days they keep busy nurturing over 600 acres of exquisite wine grapes in the ideal climate and soil of the Sacramento Valley. Their family’s devotion to producing wines of exceptional quality and character is unwavering. So, it’s no surprise they are involved in the winemaking process every step of the way. From the growing and harvesting of our grapes at the peak of their flavor, to crushing, aging and handcrafting the final product. In short, winemaking is their family’s greatest passion, so it goes without saying that they’re in it for the long haul.
