Description:

Peachy Canyon is a family owned and operated winery dedicated to making excellent wines sustainably. Founded by Doug and Nancy Beckett in 1988, Peachy has long been praised as a producer of award-winning California wines that exemplify respect for terroir and dedicated winemaking.

Today the winery’s tasting menu sports elite Bordeaux-style blends alongside award winning red Zinfandels and other unique and storied varietals, including: Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Malbec, Viognier and Petite Sirah, among others. Peachy Canyon practices artisanal winemaking methods: Vineyards are pruned, maintained, harvested and sorted by hand.  This commitment to sustainable winemaking begins in the vineyard and continues in all aspects of wine production. Established grapes are dry farmed, owl boxes are used for natural pest control, and vine care from planting to picking is done by hand. A select staff vineyard team maintains the estates year round. This labor-intensive process results in high quality control, leading to outstanding wines.

Zinfandel has long been Peachy Canyon’s flagship varietal—oftentimes with multiple vineyard designates in production. These red Zinfandels range from elegant and restrained to fruit forward, each an exemplary call to its own terroir, a showcase of Paso Robles’ microclimates. With these exemplary Zins Peachy Canyon has been instrumental in establishing Paso Robles’ reputation as a key Zinfandel growing region in California. In addition to Zin, Peachy Canyon produces a series of premium Bordeaux-style wines that highlight Paso Robles’ bucolic vineyard terrain. These include Peachy’s ‘Para Siempre,’ a top-tier Bordeaux blend based in Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc; ‘Ms Behave,’ a rich, multi-award winning Malbec; and ‘DeVine’ Cabernet Sauvignon.

Varietals:

Bordeaux-Style Blend, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Dessert Wine, Grenache Blanc, Late Harvest Zinfandel, Malbec, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Petite Sirah, Port Style, Red Blend, Red Meritage Blend, Red Rhône-Style Blend, Rosé, Sangiovese, Syrah, Viognier, Zinfandel.
