  • About
    In 2004, lifelong entrepreneur, developer, and wine lover Steve Olson began searching for property in Paso Robles AVA. When Olson encountered an idyllic parcel in the Templeton Gap, he immediately recognized the potential of the property, and the 127-acres became the ONX Estate Vineyard the following year. Since then, ONX (pronounced Onyx) found a permanent winemaking home and tasting room in Tin City, as well as acquired their Kiler Canyon Vineyard in the Willow Creek AVA of Paso Robles.

    ONX Wines has built a reputation for crafting high-quality blends that push the envelope while maintaining to be true stewards of the land. Earning certification with the California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance, they are focused on continuing the tradition of making world-renowned wines for generations to come.

    To learn more about ONX, book a vineyard tour at the ONX Estate, a tasting at their Tin City Tasting Room and Winery, or book a stay at one of their vineyard properties.
