  • About
    Le Cuvier produces exquisite small-production wines utilizing wild yeasts, dry-farmed fruit and neutral barrel aging. Led by Paso legend John Munch, we promote a hands-off approach to winemaking—which results in wines of distinct character.

    You will not find our wines in retailers or restaurants, so why not join us for a tasting at our stunning hilltop location? Please call 805.238.5706 or visit our website for our business response to COVID-19 and to make a reservation.
    We remain open from 11AM to 5PM Monday through Sunday for pick-up and to go orders and are NOW WELCOMING our members & guests for two distinct sit down experiences: chef created paired lunch & flight or our original food & wine pairing on Fridays, Saturdays and Sunday from 11AM to 5PM.

    Our tasting experience has returned with our passionate staff here to educate you about our delicious wines. We are adhering to strict COVID-19 protocols and would like to safely welcome you join us outdoor on our patio beneath the oak or overlooking Paso Robles to the east.

    While we are pet-friendly, please note pets must be on a leash and well-behaved.
    Reservations required, 24 hour cancellation policy.
