The Foxen Boys (aka Bill Wathen and Dick Doré) have been making wine together since 1985, when they founded Foxen Winery & Vineyard at the historic Rancho Tinaquaic on Foxen Canyon Road.
In San Miguel, California Lusso Della Terra, which name means "Luxury of the Land" makes its goal to live up to the name by drawing on the passion and love for both the land and the wine it produces. Winemaker Edward Cholakian starting from cellar rat, worked his way up the production later over time. His experience at well-know wineries such as Cakebread Cellars, Chateau St Jean, Monterey Wine Company, Fetzer Vineyards as well as serving as consultant for 30 other winereis has shaped Edward in creating his own style and winemakeing and shows in the wines of Lusso Della Terra.

Family owned and operated, Silver Horse specializes in Bordeaux and Spanish varietal wines. The wines are food friendly, age worthy and highly sought after.
Waltzing Bear Wines is an artisan wine producer located in Santa Maria, California dedicated to producing small lots of ultra-premium wines. The winery's primary focus is Central Coast pinot noir, with petite sirah and viognier.
This winery's goal is to make wine that works hard at helping hard working Americans relax for a minute, take a load off, and remove ones nose from the grindstone for a while.
Tin House is a small, family-owned and operated winery. Tin House focuses on two varieties of wine - Pinot Noir and Syrah. Tin House sources their fruit from the Edna Valley and Santa Maria Appellations. Award-winning wines are produced in limited quantities resulting in wines that exhibit intimate craftsmanship and artisan character.
It started with 20 acres in 1999 and now Tom and Kathleen own 113 acres where they dedicate their energy and resources to providing the best environment for growing premium grapes. The vineyards are operated with sustainable farming practices to ensure that the best fruit possible will still be grown there when their grandchildren operate the farm.
The next phase of the dream began in the Spring of 2008 when they broke ground on a 14,000 winery and 5,000 square foot tasting room. Continuing the dedication to providing the best environment possible, the winery and tasting room were designed in partnership with PG&E through their “Savings By Design” program to design buildings that are energy efficient and environmentally sound.
In August 2012 Pear Valley officially achieved Sustainability in Practice (SIP) Vineyard Certification. Attaining SIP Certification demonstrates dedication to vineyard practices that are environmentally sound, socially equitable and economically-viable
Exceeded expectations are the best words to begin this review. The east side of Paso Robles is a place that at times does not receive the credit due or publicity that the west side has basked in for many years. Despite what some public opinion states there are a growing number of incredible attractively priced wines and well run establishments creating unique experiences all over the east and my recent trip to Pear Valley Winery was something that far and beyond exceeded my expectations.
Serving both Rhone and Boudreaux varietals, various blends, and well balanced wines all around they have something for the varying discerning tastes. Throw in some complimentary warm meatballs, a nice cheese spread, various cracker selections, and a friendly staff how could you not enjoy yourself.
Dark Star Cellars is a rustic working winery and vineyard just of the West 46 and 5 min from Central Paso Robles. We really enjoy the Mirror (Syrah/Cab/Merlot blend), Passing By (Cab/Merlot blend), the Jack of Hearts (Cab/Merlot/Petit Verdot) and Jersey Girl. Wines were great. Excellent wines would highly recommend.
