Guyomar wines are made with the philosophy that wines of balance, complexity, and age-worthiness will follow naturally from vineyards of character and integrity.
Guyomar’s estate vineyard, St. Peter of Alcantara, is located in the western part of Paso Robles AVA, known as the Templeton Gap, in the Willow Creek District. The vineyard benefits from ocean influence; the afternoon winds that cool the region during the growing season, as well as the increased rainfall on the westside of Paso Robles.
The vineyard was established in 1998, and Guyomar Wine Cellars' first wines, the 2010 vintage, were released at the end of 2013.
Proprietors Ishka and Mareeni Stanislaus have been extremely fortunate to be associated with two pioneers in the art of winegrowing and winemaking in the Paso Robles appellation, namely, Richard Sauret and Steve Glossner. They have been instrumental at educating and ultimately at crafting some extraordinary wines whose reputations will linger into perpetuity.
