What do you get when you blend a wry sense of humor with pixy good looks and a yen for chemistry... In the madcap life script that Fate wrote for Lane Tanner, you get a Bette Midler in the Bottle, a winemaking woman who started her own brand in the earliest days of Santa Barbara Pinot Noir ... and lots of laughs.
Located in Paso Robles, California EOS Estate Winery produces Central Coast Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and more. Visit EOS and be suduced by their sinfully good wines.
Pianetta winery is located on the vineyard, fourteen miles north of the downtown Paso Robles tasting room. The majority of the grapes harvested are sold to a major premium winery. Their success with Pianetta Estate grapes as well as their encouragement inspired Pianetta to develop a small winery so as to identify the wine from this vineyard.
The first vintage yielded 370 cases of 2002 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon. Since then, Pianetta has grown to a 2700 case production and added Shiraz, Syrah, a Syrah/Cabernet blend, and a Rose style wine to their Estate wines, as well as Sangiovese, Petite Syrah, Zinfandel, and a Tuscan style blend from the Paso Robles appellation.
Old World sensibilities and New World stylistic freedom with the help of my longtime friend and vetted winemaker - Paul Wilkins.
If you are a fan of blended wine, then this place is for you. Personally, I found some of the wines on the standard flight too young for my taste. They were well mixed and given some time to age in the bottle I'm sure they would go great with their intended food parings. But for a wine to just drink and enjoy I didn't find them to be all that amazing.

AronHill Estate vineyard is nurtured on this beautiful hillside where there is the perfect blend of sun, climate, and soil, resulting in excellent fruit. Judy Aron pride herself on her personal hands-on attention to every detail in the finest winemaking tradition. Judy works hand in hand and with deep gratitude to my dedicated vineyard manager, Richard Sauret, and winemaker, Mikel Olsten, to achieve excellent and premium wines. The dry farmed, low yield, fruit-forward Cabernet Sauvignon is estate grown and touted by Cab lovers as smooth and full bodied with a pepper kick. “Unbridled Passion” is how Judy describes AronHill's Vinho Doce port.
My philosophy on making wine is that the fruit is EVERYTHING. What happens in the vineyard determines the quality of the wine - I can't make it better - I can only screw it up! That's why I'm extremely picky when choosing vineyards to buy grapes from. Not only am I looking for the right soil, micro-climate, and clones, I'm also looking for a grower with the same passion and dedication to producing great wine that I have. In other words, a total Pinot Freak! - Brian Loring
