This is a fabulous winery and tasting room. The unique volcanic soil yields great tasting wine and the place is operated by knowledgeable, friendly people. WELL worth an afternoon stop to taste wine that is out of this world!

This is the second year we visited this Winery. The owners are so down to earth and friendly. We had a delightful lunch. Last year we were able to tour his art gallery which is awesome. Rain this year prevented this. The grounds are beautiful.

I would put this on any must-stop list for Paso Robles wineries. One of the best CA cabs we've ever had (a 2005) was from here. Most of their reds will cellar and develop very well over several years. And don't miss out on some...More
