    More than anything else we want our wines to be honest. They should represent the soil of our vineyard, the climate and temperament of Paso Robles, and most importantly they should express our personalities, nature and tastes. A tall order for liquid in a bottle, but we think that anything exceptional is built upon such core beliefs. Four Lanterns sits on a historic vineyard on the west side of Paso Robles.
    Jackie & Steve Gleason took ownership and established Four Lanterns winery on this site in 2013. Life long wine nuts from the east coast, they discovered this area in the early 1990's when Steve's brother John purchased a ranch here. They came to believe that Paso was destined to become a world class wine region. Finally deciding to leave the corporate life behind in OC they moved north to Paso. They now operate two vineyards, CH Vineyard and Jackie's Vineyard where they grow Rhone & Bordeaux/Spanish varietals respectively. Each day is different. The great joy of their new venture is sharing their wine with customers in the tasting barn, taking them on tours of the vineyard or pulling samples for them in our barrel room. Seeing the light in people's eyes when they taste their wine is their favorite part of the tour! Their wines are balanced, elegant and critically acclaimed. But more importantly, they get to experience the thrill of creating a new business, spending more time together, and enjoy a better sense of the seasons of the earth, and they rhythm of life.
