Foxtrot Vineyards

Foxtrot Vineyards is a product of passion and tireless commitment to the fine details of winemaking and small lot Pinot Noir.

The roots of the vineyard go back to the early 1990s, though the Allander family didn’t start making wine until over a decade later. The recent change in ownership was serendipitous and intricately connected to the high-quality Pinot Noir that Foxtrot is known for (it’s a story best left for the wine tasting!)

There are two distinctive lines within Foxtrot’s portfolio. The namesake line focuses on terroir-driven Pinot Noir and premium Chardonnay. The Foxly line is more approachable, both in style and price point.

The name of the winery was inspired by a bear who always visited the vineyard in time for harvest. Standing on his hind legs to reach the fruit, he appeared to dance, reminding the fruit pickers of Fred Astaire. And, of course, the foxtrot was one of Fred Astaire’s signature dances.

Foxtrot Vineyard tastings are usually held outside, on comfy patio sofas. A tour is included in the non-refundable tasting fee. If you love wine and want to learn more about winemaking and the carefully considered details that go into it, Foxtrot may be the perfect match for you.

Finding the winery can be a little tricky. Foxtrot Vineyards is located on Gawne Road, very close to MOCOJO Winery. If you round the bend onto Gammon Road (where Lang Vineyards is located), you’ve gone too far.
