Excellent wines. 40 awards on their wines. There is taxidermy on the walls, but it is well done and not excessive. The wines are worth the drive from San Francisco as they were smooth, refreshing and delicious. The staff was incredible! Shelly welcomed us in and was fantastic. She is very knowledge, sweet and friendly.
Excellent to really outstanding wines, all estate-grown on the property by the owner including some varieties that are very uncommon in California like Vermentino, Counoise, and Alicante Bouschet (a rare cross, sort of a turbocharged Grenache) They make a few different Syrahs from the vines nearest the tasting room. And yes, the tasting room has some taxidermy in it, which seems to have emotionally offended a few people to the point of not being able to evaluate the wines? I thought this site was for reviews, not trolling 🙂 Anyway, if you want to try some of the best wines in Paso, it's worth the trip.
The owners work very hard to insure that every single person that walks into their tasting room knows that the wine they are about to taste is 100% above satisfactory. The owners are kind and friendly and even though they have animal decor on their walls it shouldn't matter because their wine is the ones to of won all of the gold metals for.This place was truly a great experience!
I am AMAZED at all of the 1 star ratings...does anyone know how many gold medals this winery has turned out? Their wines are AMAZING! I can't believe all the negative comments about the "atmosphere"! It is a beautiful winery with the best owners (who are hard working, hands-on owners). They are gracious, warm , welcoming and very knowledgable about their wines and will answer any questions how they are produced and harvested. Too bad for all my of those who just don't "get it" and try to bash this FIRST CLASS winery! This is one winery not to miss on your visit to the central coast.
The wines here are great - can find hard to find varietals and they're delicious! They've received a ton of awards for their wines to boot.
The winery and tasting room is beautifully situated with great views of the vineyards. They have big game trophies of some beautiful animals, and although hunting is not for everyone, it is geared toward people with that mindset.
Would recommend visiting and trying the yummy wines while down in Paso. It's a fun drive and can have some great wines and enjoy a unique tasting experience with the animals.
Their wine is amazing! Especially if you like complex reds. The view is beautiful and they have a nice patio. The owners are very friendly and take the time to talk with you. They clearly care about producing the best wine possible and taking care of their customers. My children really enjoyed looking at all the animals (they were careful not to touch) and they liked playing with the dog too. It is definitely worth the drive!
Wine tasting with Shelly was a blast! The wines are delicious and it's worth finding this hidden gem. The animal crackers were a welcome surprise and a bit ironic given the decor. Overall I would highly recommend you stop by & say hi to Shelly & Bella!
Michael Gill wines are fabulous and have great depth. This winery offers a great selection of many different varietals that are priced reasonably. It is unfortunate that many ignorant people have given this winery such bad ratings that have nothing to do with the quality of their wine. Shelley is so pleasant and fun to visit with and my husband and I are looking forward to meeting Michael.
This is one winery we never miss when visiting Paso Robles.
