My wine journey started as a waiter in Paso Robles, CA. There I was exposed to many great wine producers. Several became friends and eventually opened their doors to my learning desires. I started as a cellar rat, and moved on to learn the many different aspects of the wine industry. My enthusiasm for producing great wines brought me and my wife to the development of our own brand, Bodega de Edgar, in 2007.

Starting at just 250 cases, B de E is not approaching 1,800 cases with the 2012 vintage. As always, my focus is on sourcing the highest quality fruit to produce the best wines, while still maintaining an affordable price point.

Hours: Thurs-Mon 11:00am – 5:00pm

Our wines are a reflection of our way of life, and mission.

We have strived to be good stewards of the land with which we have been blessed for five generations. Our family vineyards and winery have been developed with the goal of producing wines which will carry the family name with pride and allow us to keep our family ranch for the generations to come. To that end, we produce fine wines in which we have the same pride as we have in our family and our family legacy.

The Dubost Family left the Cherbourg region of France after the Franco-Prussian War of 1871 to escape the violence of Europe. They were blacksmiths by trade and immigrated to Hawaii and the Black Hills of South Dakota before settling on the Central California Coast.

The vineyards and winery of Dubost Ranch are on 320 acres of hillsides in the heart of Adelaida. The climate and limestone soils are perfect for producing premium grapes and the straw bale winery is a model for sustainable production facility.

Écluse is the French word for the locks on the canals that gently carve their way through the remarkable French wine countryside and since our last name is Lock, the name Écluse for our wines was born! 

As home of a San Francisco Chronicle’s Sweepstakes winning Best Red Wine, we at Écluse Wines are dedicated to producing limited production, handcrafted, award-winning wines from our very own Lock Vineyard. Our family owned boutique winery is a true reflection of this special place we call home. Nestled in the gently rolling hillside terroir on the desired Westside of the Paso Robles AVA, we feature Bordeaux and Rhone style wines, as well as our fabulous Zinfandel. Our wines are often described as silky, lush, smooth and approachable when first released, becoming even more complex and elegant as they age.

From the beginning our philosophy is that great fruit makes great wine. Having our own small winery onsite gives us the added benefit of picking and crushing small lots throughout the vineyard when the fruit has reached its peak flavors. Having control from the vineyard to the bottle insures that Écluse wines remain the truly remarkable wine that it is today!

Located only five minutes west of downtown Paso Robles, we invite you to discover the expression of our estate-grown wines while you savor the Ecluse difference. Join us and experience wine tasting the old fashion way, in the barrel room where you may even find Steve, proprietor and winemaker, with the wine thief offering barrel samples!

Four Lanterns Winery resides on 35 acres on the west side of Paso Robles. It is centrally located in the beautiful rolling hills of the Templeton Gap. The area is renowned for hot days, cool nights and calcareous soil; all of which combine to provide a perfect environment for making exceptional wines.

The hill on the vineyard was originally terraced for an apple farm in the early 1900s.  In the late 1970s and early 1980s the property was revitalized with the creation of Sycamore Farms - an herb farm and vineyard.  Jackie and Steve Gleason purchased the property in 2013.  In addition to expanding and improving the vineyard they created Four Lanterns Winery (named for their four daughters).

Four Lanterns Winery specialized in wine varietals native to France’s Rhone Valley, and focuses on making estate wines in order to capitalize on the natural strengths of the vineyard.  The resulting wines are beautifully complex, balanced, and wonderful to drink.

Website: www.JadaVineyard.com
Hours: Daily 11:00am - 5:00pm

Jada Vineyard lies in an incredible pocket in the hills of the Santa Lucia Coastal Range on the west side of Paso Robles.  Blessed with abundant sunshine throughout the growing season, the maritime influence moderates the heat and provides incredibly cool evenings.  As a result, harvest generally occurs near the end of October and the beginning of November.  This long maturation process allows for superb development of color & intensity in character while maintaining acidity.

To wine growers, the beauty here is found beyond, in fact beneath, the surface.  Initially barley, 11 varietals & 19 clones now comprise 65 acres of estate vineyard at Jada. Under the shallow topsoil of clay loam lie massive deposits of calcareous shale and pockets of limestone.  This challenging environment contributes to reduced vigor in the vines and decreased berry size, which plays a huge part in the intensity of the fruit and imparts a complex underlying minerality.

To-date, Jada has received over 54 “90/90+” wine ratings for its all-estate, limited-production Rhone & Bordeaux-style wines and is 100% sustainably farmed using biodynamic practices.

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.
