Story

Check out their Preferred Member Offer.

CALCAREOUS WINES CONSISTENTLY receive accolades and scores that exceed 90 points for two reasons.

The first is “place,” or what others call terroir. The soil beneath the three estate vineyards is rare, formed from ancient fossil shells and calcareous rock. These vineyards produce tiny yields, resulting in fruit of profound depth and sense of place.

The selection of sites with optimal growing conditions for Rhône, Bordeaux, and Burgundian grape varieties–at an elevation of 2,000 feet where days are long and hot, and nights are brisk–contribute to terroir expression. “Let the soil speak” is the winery’s adage.

Head Winemaker Jason Joyce is another reason why four of the current releases received high scores: Trés Violet (92 points), Devil’s Canyon Syrah (93), Moose Blend (94), and Estate Cabernet Sauvignon (90) from Wine Spectator and Wine Enthusiast.

The perfect place to enjoy these wines is from the winery’s glass-walled tasting room, “Lloyd’s Lookout,” atop the mountain in Paso Robles, where you can take in the “place.”

The views, the wines, and the bocce keep people happy ... oh, and the food. On Saturdays and Sundays from noon till 3, lunch, prepared by Thomas Hill Organics, is paired with estate wines. Reservations encouraged. For the daily wine and cheese tastings and tours, please reserve in advance.
