La Vie Dansante is a boutique winery crafting wines of elegance and finesse from locally-grown Rhone varietals such as Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Roussanne, and Viognier. We have a second label which we also pour which features our “California Favorites” such as Chardonnay, Zinfandel, and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Our wines are truly hand-crafted – if you find a fingerprint on the bottle it likely belongs to me, the winemaker!  We offer wine tasting on Monday, Thursday, and Friday as well as the weekends from noon to 5 pm and other times by appointment.

Come, escape to the country, and join us for a glass of our exceptional, award-winning wines.  We’re located just east of the Gilroy Premium Outlet Malls in the foothills of Gilroy, CA.


CORONOVIRUS UPDATE – We are closed until at least June 1st
In compliance with Governor Newsom’s extension of the the Shelter-In-Place Order La Vie Dansante Wines is closed to the public until the end of the current crisis.

We will continue to offer Free Doorstep Delivery service in the South Bay, Santa Cruz County, and Hollister areas. Purchase a minimum of three bottles by the end of the day Sunday and we’ll deliver them to your doorstep Monday afternoon. Order online, by email, of by calling 408-826-2712.

Governor Newsom has extended the Shelter-In-Place Order through the end of May and we will remain in compliance until that time. Our current expectation is to see essential businesses given the OK to open on the first of June. We are not essential and so do not expect to be open until the second phase in mid-June.

We’re not sure what the future looks like in wine tasting but feel that we have a huge advantage given our open air tasting area and expansive grounds. Music should be fine going forward. Movie nights shouldn’t be an issue either. We’ll have to give classes some thought since they are normally taught inside the tasting room and can be crowded.

The summer Wine Club release which was originally scheduled for early May will probably be held the second Saturday after we re-open – our current best guess is June 20th. Stay tuned, and thank you for all of your support during this difficult time for small businesses.
