Meet the founders behind 5 fave Paso Robles Wineries

Meet the founders! Behind every bottle is a great vineyard, and behind every great vineyard is a hardworking winery founder! Today, we’re excited to share some of the truly inspirational stories behind the entrepreneurs and visionaries who built some of Paso Robles’ most celebrated wineries. With 300 tasting rooms and counting, our scenic wine country landscape is dotted with as many realized dreams as varietals. All you need to do is belly up to the bar and listen closely. From chasing big ideas to taking massive leaps of faith, these Paso Robles winery founders knew what they wanted and went for it. Lucky for us, right?

Bella Luna Winery: High school buddies aim high

Graduating class: Bella Luna Winery’s story began some 40 years ago in the hearts and minds of its founders, Kevin Healey and Sherman Smoot (they were both high school seniors when they hatched the plan, if you can believe that). Kevin had just returned from serving his country in Vietnam, and Sherman, a Navy Fighter Pilot, wasn’t far behind. Growing up together as best friends in the Paso Robles AVA, they always shared a passion for wine and a curiosity of spirit. Now, you can taste the guys’ big dream in every glass of Bella Luna. This estate winery remains proudly family-owned and focuses on unique varietals that spur on a sense of adventure. Taste the founders’ small lot  premium offerings (grown on ten acres in the Templeton Gap District) when you book an educational vineyard or barrel room tour! Kind of makes us wish we’d stuck with that lemonade stand idea from back in the day!

Kiame Wine Cellars: Opposites attract

Real estate meets real wine passion: In biz relationships, having different backstories has a way of paying off! Kiamie Wine Cellars is a collaboration between two guys with totally diverse yet complementary backgrounds. While living in New York City, Aram Deirmenjian and Greg Johnson always shared a history and enthusiasm for wine. That, it seems, is where the similarities end. Aram grew up working in his family’s vineyards, spending every summer helping out with the backbreaking harvest. Meanwhile, Greg, an heir to the Kiamie Real Estate throne in New York, spent his life sipping fine wines and making a name for himself at one of New York’s top-selling wine shops. Together, the guys realized their dream of developing a world class California winery, naming the business after Greg’s mother’s maiden name, Kiamie. Check out the partners’ distinctive blends when you stop by this scenic tasting room for a flight. Untethered by tradition, the founders live by one golden rule: showcase only the best fruit Paso Robles has to offer. Some things are easy to agree on!

Iron Oaks Winery: Cowboy throws his hat into the ring

Wine cowboy: Iron Oaks Winery Founder Doug Burkett admits he “didn’t know a damn thing about wine” when he started. However, there is far more depth behind the winery founder than just a true blue cowboy attitude. Burkett started selling juice to a winemaking friend in 2010, watching their wine label grow. After a stint in Sacramento bartending and selling wine, he received a chance phone call that led him to San Francisco, where he co-founded Rebel Coast Winery with a pal. After “a ridiculous five year stretch of shenanigans and tons of fun,” he felt it was time to move on.” Burkett said. “That fall of 2017, I moved to our family ranch and started my cattle business, DD Cattle Co. This brought me down to Paso Robles, where a chance encounter with some pretty cool guys (California Coast Beer Co.) opened the door to re-start my wine dream.” In 2018 Iron Oaks Winery was born! But, as the founder likes to say, you’ll have to get the rest of the story by hanging out at the tasting room. Stop by Iron Oaks Winery today and hear this yarn for yourself. Oh, and don’t forget to grab some delicious DD Cattle Co. beef while you’re there!

Villa San-Juliette: American Idol producers spotlight Paso

Lights, camera, wine: Sometimes, the stars have a way of aligning in the most incredible way! In 2005, Villa San-Juliette proprietors Ken and Julie Warwick, along with Nigel Lythgoe, began the pursuit of turning their long-held dream of owning a vineyard into a reality. Once childhood friends in the backstreets of Liverpool, the Emmy-winning pair grew up to produce the primetime hit, American Idol. It was during their time on Idol, traveling between audition cities, that the friends first discovered Paso Robles, which was still a wine region growing under the radar. Not long after consulting with their families, Ken and Nigel purchased and began redevelopment of an old-vine property located at the northern edge of the Paso Robles AVA. Over a decade later, Villa San-Juliette has emerged as a premier wine destination on the Central Coast! Stop by the tasting room for a taste of their efforts paired with a gourmet, seasonal menu. To say that these wine “sing” is an understatement!

Robert Hall: One man’s hard work

Iconic to the last drop: Robert Hall Winery embodies how a whole lot of “can-do” spirit can turn one man’s vision into a truly world-class winery. A small-business visionary, the late great Robert Hall harbored life-long passion for wine and the winery lifestyle (even if he began his journey a little farther north). A self-made man from working-class St. Paul, Minnesota, Hall never shied away from a challenge, opening and growing a broad range of innovative businesses throughout his life. After establishing his namesake winery in 1999, Hall devoted himself to capturing the big, bold essence of Paso terroir. Thankfully, he had the perfect partner in crime: Acclaimed winemaker Don Brady has served as a creative force behind Robert Hall’s award-winning wines since day one. With so much continued passion carrying on Hall’s legacy into the future, it’s no wonder that Robert Hall wines have earned global recognition. You could even say the spirit of the man inspires Paso visitors and locals alike to this very day! Savor a tasting room or to-go experience at the winery to fully appreciate Hall’s dream.

5 Paso Wineries Utilizing the Best Vineyards

What they say is true: Great wine starts in the vineyard! Taste any of Paso Robles Wine Country’s award-winning bottles and you’ll find a stellar plot of land to thank. With dozens of soil types and microclimates to choose from, Paso Robles winemakers can grow a plethora of delicious grape varieties (seriously, so many more than you can count on all your fingers and toes)!

With hot, dry conditions located inland perfect for growing robust blends, cooling coastal breezes to the west known to add balanced acidity, and a smattering of majestic mountaintop blocks ready to soak up the sun, you’ll find wines that are bold, restrained, sophisticated and overall just surprisingly good. In other words? Our wines tell the story of exactly where they were raised! Ready to explore Paso’s vibrant vineyards, one sip at a time? Pull on those boots and get ready to get your hands dirty. We’re celebrating five fabulous growing grounds!

Kiamie Cellars

Taste the rainbow: Looking for a wonderful, one-stop tasting experience that’ll give you a multi-vineyard education? A visit to Kiamie Cellars reveals layers of legendary Paso Robles terroir and a dazzling array of fine fruit. That’s because Kiame’s blends are sourced from the unique mountain-top vineyards of Westside Paso Robles (as it turns out, those stunning hills are as scenic to view at as they are delicious to sample). Working with a handful of premium wine grape growers in the Paso Robles appellation—including Starr Ranch, Halter Ranch Vineyard, Rolph Family Vineyard, Hearthstone Vineyard and La Vista Vineyard—this small batch boutique winery is able to showcase some of the most premium wine grapes on the Westside! Plus, all of Kiamie’s fruit comes from a two-mile radius of their charming Adelaida Road tasting room, making for a surprisingly localized experience. BONUS: Meet G.O.A.T. adorable, miniature goats that wander around the grounds for you to pet and snap fun shots with for your Instagram!

Brecon Estate

Home grown goodness: Sometimes you need not roam far from home to find your treasure. At Brecon Estate, their onsite vineyard—located adjacent to the winery along iconic Vineyard Drive—features sixteen acres of dry-farmed, old vine cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc that represents some of the first Bodeaux plantings in the Adelaida District! As if that weren’t impressive enough, Brecon also owns four acres of petit verdot (including a new clone of malbec from Cahors, the second planting of this clone in California), four acres of cabernet franc and tannat, and a number of hilltop sites hidden away with the Central Coast highlands. Founded by longtime cave explorers, the winery still believes in leaving the land better than you found it. As they like to say of their historic estate vineyard, “Leave nothing but footprints, take nothing but photographs.” After seeing those vines with our own two eyes, we enthusiastically agree!

Four Lanterns Winery

Paso passion: If you’ve ever dreamed of stopping off on Highway 46 West for a sunny picnic, Four Lanterns Winery should be on your itinerary. Known for its sprawling green lawn, rustic-yet-sophisticated tasting room and super fresh, top notch wines, you’ll experience a family vibe the moment you step food on the property. You’ll also notice the lush estate vineyards thriving all around! Yes, Four Lanterns knows a thing or two about farming lush views: Nestled on 35 acres in the Willow Creek AVA, this land is known for hot days, cool nights and soil studded with calcareous stone. It’s just a coincidence that these coveted growing grounds make for some breathtaking scenery, too (rent a cottage on the property to see for yourself)! Want to know what convinced these SoCal locals to pack it up and move to Paso? Simply ask your tasting attendant to try a Bordeaux offering sourced from “Jackie’s Vineyard,” in the Templeton Gap AVA. ‘Nuff said!

Harmony Cellars

A harmonious blend: Harmony Cellars might be perched along a stunning coastal hillside overlooking the quaint hamlet of Harmony, California, but that doesn’t mean its vineyards are visible from this famous viewpoint. In fact, a high magnesium content in the soil make for not-so suitable growing conditions (sad face). But fear not, dear friends! This situation suits winemaker Chuck just fine. Untethered by a single estate, he’s able to offer a diverse selection of wines, all of which are produced and bottled in Harmony for your sensory enjoyment. Head to the tasting room today and sample iconic wines sourced from stellar fruit grown all along the Central Coast from Monterey to Santa Margarita in the south. When paired with Harmony Cellars’ epic views, the whole package truly comes together. Some might say it’s a perfect blend.

Hoyt Family Vineyards

Land and sea: When Hoyt Family Vineyards Winemaker Carol Hoyt and her hubby Stephen first decided to leave Hollywood and move to somewhere a little more laid back, they were torn between buying a dream home by the beach or near a vineyard. Luckily for white wine lovers everywhere, the couple chose both: in 2001, they planted their first chardonnay vineyards in Malibu, the perfect place for cool climate grapes to ripen to perfect balance. Since then, the Hoyt family clan has focused on harvesting and producing all kinds of award-winning wines sourced from Malibu all the way up through the Central Coast. In fact, their Paso Robles-based vineyards are situated high on lovely hilltops overlooking the west side of the famed Willow Creek AVA. Try their offerings for yourself at their downtown Paso Robles tasting room and you’ll soon understand the power of surf, turf and tenacity.

Pour up a glass of aspirational beauty, where wine bottles are styled for optimum wow factor, the people are gorgeous and the sunset casts a warm glow over pastoral outdoor winemaker dinners. Yes, these award-winning wines are crafted with the utmost passion, that is clear from every thoughtfully snapped pic. But that’s not to say there isn’t a hilarious photo of a Frenchie “sipping” a glass of chardonnay! Now that’s true class.

5 Festive Ways to Wrap a Wine Bottle

Want to spread good cheer far and wide? Well, last minute if you’re already planning on gifting Paso Robles Wine this holiday season, you’re halfway there! (You’re in luck, most tasting rooms are open to purchase wine.) The other half? Creative gift wrap that’ll leave your loved ones grinning from ear to ear. There could not be a less-stress gift: When it comes to Paso Robles Wine, you really can’t go wrong (and unlike a sweater, you’ll never worry if it’ll have the right fit). Whether you choose white, red, dessert or sparkling, you’ll confidently give the best bottles the famed California Central Coast has to offer. Now, let’s make sure the outsides match the insides, with absolutely no scotch tape required. Have fun and try out these easy-to-make (and easy on the eyes) gift wrapping tricks:

Uncork your creativity

Roll up those sleeves: If you’re a wine lover, we can bet you have a bowl of corks lying around! Why not grab the glue gun and get DIYing? You can easily create a “cork wreath” or “cork reindeer” in just a few minutes. Adorn your creation with a loop of colorful yarn and allow your masterpiece to be displayed around the neck of that bottle with pride. The best part? Your loved one can use your cork-art as an ornament, year after year. Gift this: Penman Springs is all about “tasting the art” in each bottle. A dark ruby color, the winery’s 2016 Merlot would look lovely against Rudolph’s nose!

Sock it to ’em

How about this for an inspired upcycle? Take a festive, plush holiday sock (I should say new, not used) and slip your wine bottle right in! Top with a color coordinated bow and wow, just like that—you’ve given the coziest stocking under the tree! Gift this: Everyone loves Dover Canyon’s 2018 Thunder Zinfandel, a big jammy wine that’ll inspire warm nights in by the fire. Might want to buy an extra pair of sock for yourself, too!

Sensory overload

Foodie friend? Stuff a satchel or two with aromatic rosemary and loop the bags around the neck of the bottle (they’ll love this). For extra oomph, add a few whole cloves or tie on a cinnamon stick. How pretty is that? We have a feeling this bottle will earn its rightful place on the holiday dinner table! Gift this: Brecon Estate is obsessed with crafting unique blends that surprise the palate. The winery’s 2017 Syrah Tannat blend is distinctly bold, leaving your favorite home chef to puzzle over just how to pair it (a fun game, indeed).

Tea for two

Give them a reason to celebrate, whatever the day! The stylish homemaker in your circle will adore an elegant bottle of wine wrapped in a fancy tea towel. Not only is the whole gift super Instagram-worthy, but the tea towel will forever remind your pal of that special holiday gift (that you gave, I might add). Tea towels are not just for grandma anymore: With sarcastic quotes, vintage designs and modern motifs to choose from, this offering will feel special, even if it took zero time to put together. Gift this: Kiame Cellars is home to lovely sparkling and non-sparkling wines that fit every occasion, from a casual brunch to a glitzy New Year’s Eve for two.

For those who roam

Ticket to ride: For a simple, thoughtful way to customize your wine bottle for the forever wanderer in your life, purchase a luggage tag that really connects with your loved one (these look so fun dangling from the bottle). With elegant leather, adventurous animal print and sparkly options to consider, you can really have a ball with the presentation. Gift this: Italy might be a far off dream for now, but you can bring a bit of that faraway romance with Pelletiere Wine. The winery’s 2017 Dolce Vendemmia (“late harvest”) Zinfandel is rich, with layers of sun-kissed sugar plumy sweetness. Let’s hope they send you a postcard!

Gift the Rainbow with Paso Robles Wines

Sip the rainbow! Garnet-red blends, peachy-pink rosés and gold-tinged whites steal the show when the twinkle lights glow. With so many festive whites, reds, and sparklings to choose from, Paso Robles Wine Country is home to unique bottles sure to delight your friends, family and colleagues this holiday season. Whether you seek something bright and fresh or a velvety fruit bomb, there’s a show-stopping Paso Robles wine to gift now. Just feast your eyes on this vibrant display of vivid varietals! The best part? They taste even better than they look!

Give Gold: Jada 2019 88 Viognier

All that glitters: Jada’s 2019 “88” is a gorgeous 100% Viognier that dazzles with solid gold glamor. Fermented and aged in new French oak barrels (and finished with a touch of neutral and stainless steel) this white is far from wallflower. Gift an exotic nose of orange blossom and magnolia, scented beeswax, and vibrant traces of Meyer lemon oil. Yes, this does sound like a killer perfume! With enough fresh acidity to support the layers of flavors on the finish, including white flower, Asian pear, and a hint of freshly baked Brioche, this one knows how to steal the spotlight. Go ahead, take this golden opportunity to knock their stockings off.

Gift it now, click here

Give Pink: Kiamie Wine Cellars 2019 Grenache Rosé

A touch of blush: Pale salmon in the glass, Kiamie Cellar’s romantic rosé dazzles in well-concentrated aromas of wet stone, strawberry patch, and delicate peppery spice. With a pleasing ripeness and plenty of fruit on the palate (including cold-pressed watermelon juice adding to the exotic mélange), this bottle is a go-to for easy sipping (and stellar gifting) all year long. After all, the holidays don’t always mean shivering and bundling up. In Paso Robles Wine Country, we’re all about still sipping rosé on the patio all holiday long!

Gift it now, click here

Give Ruby: Écluse 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon

Rudolph’s pick: Écluse’s ruby red wine is as jolly as they come. Aromas of cocoa and toasted marshmallow take you back to waiting for Santa to shimmy down the chimney. The palate is full of joyous holiday fun, including ripe black cherry, dark chocolate and lots of spice. Incredibly rich and luscious, a smooth finish leaves you spellbound by flavors of coffee and just a hint of smokey coal. This year, give them something truly elegant, silky and smooth—far better than a cashmere sweater.

But it now, click here

Give purple: 2015 Treana Red

Regal and ready to drink: An impressive purple-black core gives this rich red a luxurious quality. A refined, holiday-worthy offering from Hope Family Wines, this benchmark bottle will charm your loved one with a palate of freshly picked blackberries, muddled black and red currants, dried cranberries and clove. Truly, the flavor is just as sumptuous: a cascade of caramelized oak notes are spiced by a hint of cinnamon and vanilla, plus waves of ripe blackberries and pomegranate fruit. Even better, you can purchase the wine in an attractive three liter format, ensuring that everyone can raise a glass to the holiday. If this bottle could take a bow, it certainly would.

Give sunshine: Cass Winery’s 2018 Late Harvest Roussanne

Paso Robles sunshine in a bottle? We’ve found it. Cass Winery’s 2018 Late Harvest Roussanne is juicy and sweet, the perfect holiday dessert to share with your favorite friends and family. A vibrant yellow hue and perky aromas of white peach, crushed honeysuckle and zesty orange blossom seem to greet the nose with a welcoming wink. This year, supply your loved ones with a wonderland of honeycomb, lemon meringue pie and candied pineapple. Trust us, it’s better than candy. Even pie has trouble competing with this one!
