' Coyote Moon Vineyards - Our Story

Our Story

The Randazzo family of Coyote Moon Vineyards handcrafts each award-winning wine at their vineyard located in Clayton, New York. Phil Randazzo, patriarch of the family-owned and operated winery, is a self-taught winemaker. Phil and his wife Mary, along with their children, Tony and Kristina, and daughter-in-law Lori, and son-in-law Christian carefully create each bottle of Coyote Moon’s award-winning wine. At Coyote Moon Vineyards, winemaking is not a passion, it’s an obsession, and it starts from the ground up. The family carefully pays attention to details, because it is the little things that make award-winning wine. Everything from the pruning, to fruit selection through hand harvesting, to label painting is done with purpose and passion. With such attention to detail, Coyote Moon Vineyards has quickly become one of New York’s most award-winning wineries.
