Meet the Winemaker
Chris’ journey into wine making was circuitous. His curiosity was first piqued in the 1990’s after visiting Napa for wine tasting. Years later, he started frequenting Paso Robles and fell in love with the people, the food, wine, and overall beauty of the area. After his children left for college, he sold the family business and relocated to Paso Robles in 2013 and dug right in. He planted a vineyard in Templeton consisting of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. He went back to school and studied both viticulture and Oenology while serving as an intern at multiple wineries. After making wine at home for several years, he finally decided to make the leap and open our tasting lounge in downtown Paso Robles. Our bold, heavy red wines and our playful whites are a direct reflection of Chris’ own palate. When Chris is not in the crush pad or vineyard, he can be found in the tasting lounge pouring wine and visiting with customers.
