  • I first visited in the 90s and knew that I would return. Finally, my wife and I did return in June of this year (2016) and my high expectations were exceeded. The Zinfandels are nothing short of superb and my old time favorite, Petit Sirah was, well, words cannot do it justice. If you enjoy bold, spicy reds, Tobin James 2013s fit the bill. Don't miss this one if you are in Paso.
  • Wine tasting is free here. The wine is great. We took home several bottles. There is no vineyard here. Its only a tasting room. If you want a vineyard experience, be sure to checkout 'castoro'
  • So. Many. People. This is by far the most crowded rating room in Paso. But it's also completely free. They have something for everyone and will help you find what you like. Great staff and a great location.
  • We stopped here on our way to Pismo beach. My wife and I had a great time wine tasting. The service was exceptional and the wine is outstanding. We ended up buying about 10 bottles of wine. Its not the cheapest wine but it is really good and well worth it. This place will be a regular stop for us.
  • Love the vibe here! Instead of an uppity wine tasting facility with snooty employees this place is more like a fun bar with music and laughs. Our girl that served us was fun and I think she converted my wife to a wine drinker! Best wine tasting experience I've ever had.
