  • About
    Nadeau Family Vintners is an estate micro-winery located in the Santa Lucia Mountains four miles West of Paso Robles.

    Our tiny winery produces small lots of genuinely hand-crafted wines, carefully guided through their development by Owners/Vintners Robert and Patrice Nadeau.

    Specializing in huge, mountain-grown Zinfandel wines, and the more austere red Rhone Varietals, when you visit us be ready for our full-blown red wines, generous in varietal character and what wine snobs refer to as "gout de terroir" (flavors derived from the earth.)

    Furthermore, we're not afraid to be mavericks here, so each vintage we source a small lot of an unusual variety which may be new to many wine enthusiasts...a Nebbiolo one year, a Petite Sirah the next...just a barrel or two of something different (it keeps us humble.)

    Our tasting room is also our laboratory, so if you're into Pyrex and periodic tables, you'll feel especially comfortable here.
