OUR TOWN

Paso Robles wasn’t always sunshine and world class wine. Before that, it was hot springs and almond orchards. Founded in 1889, Paso Robles was home to farmers and missionaries. The town it has become is a place we are proud to call home.

 

Straight out of Paso was started to showcase the varietals that have made Paso Robles into the wine country it is today. The wines are true expressions of our beautiful growing region. 

ZINFANDEL

Zinfandel in Paso Robles can be traced back to the 1880’s, before the city of Paso was even founded. This juicy, jammy, sun-loving grape has been adored and evolved ever since. During the 1920’s, Zinfandel took on a new popularity. Families such as the Dusis saw its potential and planted throws of it all over Paso Robles.

CABERNET SAUVIGNON

The most planted varietal in all of Paso Robles? You guessed it. Cabernet Sauvignon. The 1960’s and 1970’s saw a Bordeaux boom in our town. Since then, we have quickly gained spotlight for having some of the best Cab around.

RHONE VARIETALS

If you visit Paso Robles now, you will definitely stumble upon some Rhone wines. You may hear that we are known for our Rhones, which grow impeccably in our region. This all may be true, but it wasn’t until the turn of the 21st century that these French varietals saw any acreage. Now, you can find many of our beloved Syrahs and GSM blends across Paso Robles.
