  • About
    As a tiny Paso Robles vintner, we consider ourselves fortunate to be part of a New World of wine exploration. Our passion is to create the best expression of a unique vineyard, using intensive growing practices and handcrafted winemaking. The philosophy here is a testimony to the belief that winemaking begins in the vineyard. Our 63 acre ranch was purchased in 1996 where 30 acres were planted to grapes and 10 acres designated to olives. It is nestled amongst rolling hills and the Huerhuero Creek on the beautiful Eastside of Paso Robles . All estate grown fruit, we specialize in Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Petite Sirah, Merlot, Viognier, and Roussanne.
    We realize that there exists unlimited potential for excellence and uniqueness for RIO SECO wines. Implementing a culture of semi-dry farming, semi-natural fermentation and of course, starting with the best fruit possible, give high hopes for making RIO SECO a respected name on the Central Coast for fine wines.
    Located just 4 miles from HWY 101, this small family-owned vineyard and winery operation is truly hands on. Our visitors find RIO SECO a perfect place to picnic, explore in the creek bed, walk through the olive grove, enjoy sunsets, music, laughter, shared stories, food and fine wine - all the making of a pleasant afternoon, indeed! We invite you to stay in our guesthouse or join us to experience the rich flavors of RIO SECO Vineyard & Winery, the home of "fine wines & friendly people".
