Dover Canyon Winery » Profile

 

Winemaker Dan Panico produces Zinfandel and Rhone style wines from specific Paso Robles micro-climates. Production is very limited. Open Thursday - Sunday 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. 4520 Vineyard Drive, Paso Robles, CA 93446. 805.237.0101. www.dovercanyon.com

Dover Canyon's total production is limited to 2,500 cases a year of vineyard designated wines and special blends. Dan Panico has been making wine in Paso Robles for 15 years. His label, Dover Canyon, is named for a canyon in the northwest corner of the appellation.

Dover Canyon is also one of the first wineries in the region to focus on small lots of vineyard-designated wines, often from very small and specific sites. Dan's commitment to natural farming is rooted in his love for intense varietal character, and the spicy flavors that come from dry-farmed, head-pruned vines and mountain grown fruit. He buys fruit only from vineyards that meet his criteria.

Dan's estate vineyard is planted to Syrah and head-pruned, dry-farmed zinfandel. The soils are exceptionally stony, and very calcareous. Dover Canyon's farming methods are low-impact and organic. Estate productions are offered exclusively to wine club and mailing list clients.
