“A premier example of what Paso Robles can do with Rhone Wines.”
Producing up to 1,200 cases annually, Michael Gill Cellars strives to stay at a smaller scale to keep as much consistency, control, and excellence in the wine as possible.
From the limestone-rich soils to the hot days and cool nights, Michael Gill Cellars has the perfect growing conditions to elegantly ripen such Rhone-style varietals as Syrah, Viognier, Counoise, Tempranillo, Vermentino, and Zinfandel have consistantly been impressive in displaying what the west side can offer to the dedicated wine aficionado. As a family vineyard, the vines receive the utmost of hands-on care from founder Michael Gill to ensure both proper care and quality from the vine to the bottle in this impressive estate winery.
Our Tasting Room is offering all Gold Medal wines. Our 2013 Alicante Boushet has been introduced to the line up and is being enjoyed by all. Our 2015 harvest, although some varieties were small yield, will generate even more exquisite wines for our followers and the tasting room for years to come.
