Deep in the hills of Cayucos, there lies an old dairy barn, no longer smelling of cows, fresh milk, and their leavings, but of fermenting grape must, ceremoniously spilt wine, and strong oak. Transformed from its fragrant beginnings, this humble structure, and home to Cayucos Cellars, has become a sanctuary of cool waiting, and unfathomable potential hiding in every barrel.
With the help of the nibbling and gnawing of wild yeasts working their magic on naught but the finest fruit to be had in the land, the balefully bubbling and slowly seething substances endure many a long year confined to the clutches of neutral oak. With patience for everything in its proper time, these are the qualities apparent that define our wines. It all began in the auspicious year of nineteen hundred and ninety six, when winemaker Stuart, wife Laura, sons Clay and Ross, and daughter Paige, embarked upon the journey of creating a small family owned and operated winery.
We of the Selkirk family invite you to our tasting room, located in beautiful downtown Cayucos, just a step from the beach, to partake in an ambrosial experience, where fine wine and a warm welcome will always be awaiting you.

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.
