My wife and I were driving around Paso Robles looking up best Pinos in the area and RN popped up. We called and they only take reservations for private tastings. We said ok. They had one in 10 mins. Perfect. No sign on the main road (River Rd), just a mail box. Drive up to the gate, put in the... More

I'm so happy other people have discovered RN Estate. It's a hidden gem I was told about 5 years ago. The first two years we tried to make an appointment but our schedules did not align. We have now tasted there several times and love his wines. It's the only wine club we belong too. I do wish more Paso... More

The owner, Roger Nicolas, truly knows his stuff. Roger is a Breton (born and raised in Brittany, France). The vineyard itself is pretty small, but he very selectively buys in grapes from others, and produces a relatively small amount of very very good red wine. You will not see his wines in supermarkets or even specialist wine shops. His labels... More

Went to J Lohr and RN winery. J Lohr had some good wine. The RN winery was a 10. The owner Rodger Nichols was about as Knowledgeable as anyone I have ever met. RN makes some of the Pinots I have ever tasted also with some young and old vine Zinfandels, the also have several others that are 5 star.... More

You must make an appointment with Roger for a tasting, but this was probably our most memorable wine tasting in Paso Robles. His house sits on top of a hill with practically a 360 degree view of the surrounding countryside. The tasting is done in his own private dining room. And the wines? Fantastic! We bought several bottles to be... More

RN Estate is a must-stop for any Paso wine fan. Roger prides himself on having wine with lower alcohol content and excellent balance and fruit and the results are spectacular. You don't see many Pinot Noirs coming out of Paso labels, but RN Estate's pinots (with fruit from the Santa Rita Hills and Santa Maria Valley) stand right up there... More
