Sextant Wines started with a small planting of Cabernet, Zinfandel and Rhône varietals in the El Pomar District within the Paso Robles AVA. With every harvest proprietors Nancy and Craig Stoller grew their family-owned, estate acreage, now with vineyards stretching from San Luis Obispo to Monterey. Matching crisp, coastal air with the region’s nutrient-rich terroir, Sextant has been able to produce acclaimed, award-winning wines year after year.
Each of the old world varietals Sextant embraces are hand-harvested at full maturation promising full flavor and intense taste in every bottle. Craig Stoller, Director of Winemaking, leads production by crafting small-lot, site-specific wines, bringing forth unique characteristics to highlight their sense of place. Known for distinguished Bordeaux blends and complex Rhône style wines, the Sextant portfolio offers selections with top ranking scores from Wine Enthusiast and others.
Visit Sextant at two distinct locations on the Central Coast. The Estate Winery is set among stunning views of the Paso Robles countryside on scenic 46 West, and the Tasting Room and Gourmet Deli sit in the heart of the San Luis Obispo wine trail at the historic Old Edna town-site. Both offer reserve tastings complete with exquisite service and knowledgeable staff.
