If you’ve visited Wilson of Dry Creek Winery you’ve seen the “Coyote.” Standing 26×23-feet tall, the sculpture was created by artist Bryan Tedrick to represent our shared love for “freedom, love of wild spaces, and the tenacity to remain.” Tedrick constructed the 7-ton steel sculpture in 2013 for the Burning Man festival. That the work now anchors the courtyard here says plenty about Wilson Winery’s fun-loving, more casual approach to the wine tasting experience. Winery founder Ken Wilson believes, like the Coyote, we could all use a little more howl, a sign of both play and love of the pack, in our lives. To help us get our howl on the Wilson family recently opened Coyote Sonoma (also referred to as the Coyote Den), a new and unusual space with an industrial aesthetic and playful vibe that reflects its name.
