Boutique Wineries are usually smaller than others in their region, and maintain a close relationship with their customers. They often view making wine as an art more than as a business. Paso Robles claims a growing number of boutique wineries, many of which have their own niche focus. From Italian varietals to modern themes, Paso Robles boutique wineries are something to check out! You can view our list below or find them on your phone or tablet with our mobile website.

My wine journey started as a waiter in Paso Robles, CA. There I was exposed to many great wine producers. Several became friends and eventually opened their doors to my learning desires. I started as a cellar rat, and moved on to learn the many different aspects of the wine industry. My enthusiasm for producing great wines brought me and my wife to the development of our own brand, Bodega de Edgar, in 2007.
Starting at just 250 cases, B de E is not approaching 1,800 cases with the 2012 vintage. As always, my focus is on sourcing the highest quality fruit to produce the best wines, while still maintaining an affordable price point.

Brecon Estate is located in the beautiful, rolling westside hills of Paso Robles where Welsh Winemaker Damian Grindley produces his award-winning collection of wines. A master winemaker with over 20 years experience, Damian has crafted some of the most highly awarded wines across the United States, Australia, and Europe.
The many microclimates of the Central Coast region allow for Brecon’s wide range of varietals and each wine is a true representation of the soil and climate of its vineyard site. Brecon Estate produces these varietals with fruit grown in the larger Central Coast appellation as well as the appellations of Paso Robles and Monterey.
Production at Brecon Estate is sold exclusively on site thru their tasting room. Each wine is fermented in a small batch after being selected from vineyard parcels on the Central Coast. One of the vineyard sites is home to some of the first plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc vines in the original Adelaida district of Paso Robles. The roots of the Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards are old enough to have reached deep into the ground and as a result, the vines have been dry-farmed for the past four years. It is amongst these vineyards that Brecon’s newly designed, contemporary winery sits along the stunning Vineyard Drive.
Outside of the tasting room, guests can relax and picnic beneath stately oak trees, view the gnarly old vines and enjoy the latest releases. Guests can also host events and weddings at Brecon Estate.
North or South from Highway 101, take Highway 46 West, after 4.5 miles turn right onto the iconic Vineyard Drive then after 5.6 miles Brecon Estate will be on your right.

Cass Vineyard and Winery is located in the rolling, oak-studded hills between Paso Robles and Creston on California’s beautiful Central Coast. This area that the vineyard calls home offers quiet serenity for the visitor and an ideal growing environment for wine grapes.
Sited due east of the “Templeton Gap”, we receive the evening’s cooling breezes that the west side of Paso Robles is noted for. We also rest far enough from the coast to generate the heat needed to optimally ripen the Rhone varieties grown on our 145 acre estate vineyard.
Cass’ Executive Chef offers a variety of food paring options to accompany our wine tasting 7 days a week from 11-5 p.m. Great wine pairs best with two aspects of life…great food and great times. We attempt to accomplish this pairing at Cass Winery through our many events. Our full service commercial kitchen and Executive Chef are able to create innovative gourmet meals for our unique winery events and your private parties. Whatever the size of your party, we will ensure that the event will be truly a memorable wine-country experience.

"I put a tremendous amount of thought and care into making these wines," Neil says. "But once the cork is pulled, it all comes down to the simple pleasure of experiencing everything that a remarkable vineyard has to offer."
555 Main Street, Cambria, CA 93428
Cutruzzola Vineyards is located in a coastal valley just outside the town of Cambria on California’s Central Coast. By fortune of geology, many of our vineyard blocks contain limestone, which limits yield and enhances quality.
In 2000, while walking along Santa Rosa Creek Road in Cambria, we came across a parcel of land for sale. Just about seven miles outside of Cambria, the property was comprised of steep hillsides with varying exposures ranging from southeast to southwest. The climate of the vineyard was notable for gentle cool breezes and abundant sunshine, the fog often stopping two miles to the west.
The property was purchased and five acres of Pinot Noir were planted in 2001, and two more acres were planted to Riesling in 2006. Due to the presence of limestone, low available nutrients and limited water resources, growth was slow and our first commercial harvest was in 2009.
Our Cambria tasting room opened in January 2015. In addition to our limited-production wines, we also have a number of unique gift items for sale.

We have strived to be good stewards of the land with which we have been blessed for five generations. Our family vineyards and winery have been developed with the goal of producing wines which will carry the family name with pride and allow us to keep our family ranch for the generations to come. To that end, we produce fine wines in which we have the same pride as we have in our family and our family legacy.
The Dubost Family left the Cherbourg region of France after the Franco-Prussian War of 1871 to escape the violence of Europe. They were blacksmiths by trade and immigrated to Hawaii and the Black Hills of South Dakota before settling on the Central California Coast.
The vineyards and winery of Dubost Ranch are on 320 acres of hillsides in the heart of Adelaida. The climate and limestone soils are perfect for producing premium grapes and the straw bale winery is a model for sustainable production facility.

Écluse is the French word for the locks on the canals that gently carve their way through the remarkable French wine countryside and since our last name is Lock, the name Écluse for our wines was born!
As home of a San Francisco Chronicle’s Sweepstakes winning Best Red Wine, we at Écluse Wines are dedicated to producing limited production, handcrafted, award-winning wines from our very own Lock Vineyard. Our family owned boutique winery is a true reflection of this special place we call home. Nestled in the gently rolling hillside terroir on the desired Westside of the Paso Robles AVA, we feature Bordeaux and Rhone style wines, as well as our fabulous Zinfandel. Our wines are often described as silky, lush, smooth and approachable when first released, becoming even more complex and elegant as they age.
From the beginning our philosophy is that great fruit makes great wine. Having our own small winery onsite gives us the added benefit of picking and crushing small lots throughout the vineyard when the fruit has reached its peak flavors. Having control from the vineyard to the bottle insures that Écluse wines remain the truly remarkable wine that it is today!
Located only five minutes west of downtown Paso Robles, we invite you to discover the expression of our estate-grown wines while you savor the Ecluse difference. Join us and experience wine tasting the old fashion way, in the barrel room where you may even find Steve, proprietor and winemaker, with the wine thief offering barrel samples!

Four Lanterns Winery resides on 35 acres on the west side of Paso Robles. It is centrally located in the beautiful rolling hills of the Templeton Gap. The area is renowned for hot days, cool nights and calcareous soil; all of which combine to provide a perfect environment for making exceptional wines.
The hill on the vineyard was originally terraced for an apple farm in the early 1900s. In the late 1970s and early 1980s the property was revitalized with the creation of Sycamore Farms - an herb farm and vineyard. Jackie and Steve Gleason purchased the property in 2013. In addition to expanding and improving the vineyard they created Four Lanterns Winery (named for their four daughters).
Four Lanterns Winery specialized in wine varietals native to France’s Rhone Valley, and focuses on making estate wines in order to capitalize on the natural strengths of the vineyard. The resulting wines are beautifully complex, balanced, and wonderful to drink.

Hug Cellars specializes in hand crafting small lots of ultra-premium wine. Winemaker Augie Hug approaches winemaking with a measured hand, allowing each vineyard to express its own virtues. Hug Cellars utilizes grapes from premier, maritime vineyard sources from the Central Coast.
Hug Cellars is a small family owned winery established in 1994 by Augie and Raquel Hug. While becoming a reality in 1994, Hug Cellars started conceptually during the mid 1980’s, while Augie was the chef/owner of a small restaurant located in Northern California. Augie found that the union of food and wine came quite naturally to him, and it was during this time that he developed his love of wines.
Hug Cellars works with some of the best vineyards and growers on the Central Coast. James Ontiveros of Rancho Ontiveros, Eric Jensen of Booker Vineyard, Terry Hoage of Terry Hoage Vineyard, Lino Bozzano of Laetitia and Cedar Lane Vineyard, just to name a few. Hug Cellar’s wines are wines that are truly “made in the vineyard”. Handcrafted cultivation by these dedicated growers, and gentle winemaking in the cellar, produce wines that are rich and intense in their aromas, textures and flavors.
There is very little manipulation in the small lot winemaking at Hug Cellars. We utilize whole cluster and indigenous yeasts in our fermentations. This fosters wines that reflect the pure expression of these unique vineyards.

Jada Vineyard lies in an incredible pocket in the hills of the Santa Lucia Coastal Range on the west side of Paso Robles. Blessed with abundant sunshine throughout the growing season, the maritime influence moderates the heat and provides incredibly cool evenings. As a result, harvest generally occurs near the end of October and the beginning of November. This long maturation process allows for superb development of color & intensity in character while maintaining acidity.
To wine growers, the beauty here is found beyond, in fact beneath, the surface. Initially barley, 11 varietals & 19 clones now comprise 65 acres of estate vineyard at Jada. Under the shallow topsoil of clay loam lie massive deposits of calcareous shale and pockets of limestone. This challenging environment contributes to reduced vigor in the vines and decreased berry size, which plays a huge part in the intensity of the fruit and imparts a complex underlying minerality.
To-date, Jada has received over 54 “90/90+” wine ratings for its all-estate, limited-production Rhone & Bordeaux-style wines and is 100% sustainably farmed using biodynamic practices.

Originally established in 1856, founder, Adolph Siot was a pioneer in viticulture for San Luis Obispo County. He is credited as one of the first people to plant grapes and make wine right on the original estate here in Templeton California.
Adolph Siot had a very successful business for decades before he sold it to the Rotta family during the “Crisis of 1907”. The Rotta family kept the winery operating for another 100 years. There are still many relics of the old original property and winery here today. Rotta wine is still available too.

Sculpterra Winery and Sculpture Garden is an amazing combination of great wine and magnificent art. The wines are hand crafted and meticulously cared for, with the grapes coming from our own 260 acre estate.
The tasting room and surrounding gardens are adorned with larger-than-life original bronze and granite sculptures that create a truly one of a kind wine country experience in Paso Robles.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of Sculpterra wine are donated to “His Healing Hands”, a medical missionary foundation that sends medical missionary teams on short-term trips all over the world to care for the most needy under-privileged peoples on all five continents. The owner of Sculpterra, Dr. Frankel, is one of the founders.
The Sculpterra Vineyards occupy a unique position in the Paso Robles appellation. Situated 3 miles east of Paso Robles, the vineyards are flanked by the Huerhuero Creek drainage. A tributary of the Huerhuero snakes through the vineyard contributing important characteristics to the complex landforms present in our vineyards.
Limestone outcroppings dominate ridge line plantings on the western portions of the property. Impressive Zinfandel plantings occupy the high ground sharing the ridge with small plantings of Merlot and a reserve planting of Cabernet Sauvignon. Dramatic overlooks on the steep slopes facing the eastern exposures reveal lowland vine plantings situated on alluvial fans of clay loam intermixed with gravel beds from nearby streams. The terroir is reminiscent of the Medoc-Graves region of Bordeaux and classic Cabernet Sauviginon is the natural result.
