    Located in the heart of the renowned Willow Creek district on the westside of Paso Robles, Pelletiere Estate Vineyard & Winery can be found on a cozy corner on Township Road just off Highway 46w in the beautiful foothills of west Paso. The property has a rich local history dating back to the late 1890's. The original 1890's Farmhouse has been lovingly renovated & is now a stylish vacation rental which overlooks our vineyard. The Pelletiere Estate vineyard was planted in 1993-1996, and is family owned & operated with a commitment to the traditions of fine winemaking and responsible stewardship of our land.

    Its south facing sloped terrain, rocky limestone soils, cool coastal breezes and diurnal fluctuation in temperature create, above all an estate ideal for wine growing. Here we produce exceptional Italian varietals that honor our Italian heritage. One hundred percent of Pelletiere Estate wines are sourced from its sustainably-farmed vineyard. We grow and produce Italian varieties which include; Sangiovese, Nebbiolo, Montepulciano, Aglianco, Lagrein, Cannonau, Primitivo, as well as, our Syrah and Viognier. We are dedicated to meticulous vineyard care, picking at optimum ripeness, and creating elegant Italian style wines which express the balance and pure flavors of our vineyard terrior.

    Distinctive Italian style wines, stunning tasting room, breathtaking setting, and passionate crew members, make Pelletiere Estate truly worth the wonder.
