"A premier example of what Paso Robles can do with Rhone Wines."

Michael Gill Cellars has brought more attention to the central coast wine region with his gold medal awards, especially the red varieties from the old European stock. Adjusting field practices and barrel room techniques, a new perspective has been formed of what can be accomplished by innovation and passion.

Located at the midpoint of Peachy Canyon Road, Michael Gill Cellars is quickly becoming the destination of dedicated wine aficionados. The varied microclimates and steep slopes of the vineyards allow a variety of specifics to be applied to each of the ten grape varieties to allow them to thrive in their most ideal environments.

Producing internationally recognized wine is attributed to the hands-on approach to each vine and adapting to the whims of Mother Nature. Being a boutique winery requires intense time and labor demands, and these demands have been recognized: 40 gold medals in the 2018 and 2019 competitions and 99 point scores four times in his seven years of competition on his Tempranillo, Counoise, and Syrah.Production at Michael Gill Cellars is sold exclusively at the tasting room and through the wine club.  The facility is surrounded by the Syrah vines that were planted in 1998.  The patio overlooks the vineyard and adjacent wineries, offering a peaceful scenic area to picnic, relax, and sip from the gold medal tasting menus.  There is a bit of the old west scattered about in his tasting room as can be seen by his world class hunting trophies.  Where else can one see life-sized mounts of polar bear and lion along with trophies from other parts of the world.  Michael Gill Cellars is truly an event to be unequalled: scenic location, historic hunting memories, and, of course, world class wines.


Alicante Bouschet, Counoise, Syrah, Tempranillo, Vermentino, Viognier, Zinfandel.
