Dancing Bear Cellars Announces Its 10th Bottling -- Shea Cuvée Pinot Noir, Mendocino County 2006

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - August 14, 2007) - Dancing Bear Cellars, a producer and distributor of fine boutique wines, is pleased to announce its tenth bottling -- the Shea Cuvée Pinot Noir, Mendocino County 2006. This lush California Pinot is designated the Shea Cuvée in memory of Danny and Joe Shea, who were killed on September 11th, 2001. Ten percent of the proceeds from the sale of this wine will be donated to the 9/11 Memorial Fund.

"This bottling is very close to my heart and really goes to the root of why I founded Dancing Bear Cellars. One of the lessons we learned from that tragedy is that life is short and therefore is meant to be celebrated. By bottling these wines I get the opportunity to share this vision and special selections with those around me. I want to dedicate this wine to them and to the thousands of other brothers and sisters who perished that day -- We will never forget you," said Eric Munson, President of Dancing Bear Cellars.

The Dancing Bear proprietary label series includes 2000 Mendocino Valley Pinot Noir, 2001 Carneros Pinot Noir, 2001 Alexander Valley Pinot Noir, 2002 Napa Valley Chardonnay, 2003 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, 2003 Alexander Valley Chardonnay, 2004 Dry Creek Zinfandel, 2005 Washington State Sauvignon Blanc, and the 2004 Life of Riley Pinot Noir, Sonoma County. The motto "Wines Celebrating Life" is an inherent part of every label produced.
