    Enjoy elegant and authentic wine crafted by Cris and JoAnn Cherry on their Regenerative Organic and biodynamic west side estate. Consistently named one of the best wineries in Paso Robles, at the MAHA you can enjoy a laid back yet intimate wine tasting experience, while sampling a selection of our highly acclaimed Rhone style wines made from grapes grown on our nearby hillsides. Since 2001, we have been sourcing Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre grapes from some of the most highly esteemed organically farmed vineyards on the west side. In 2015 we received our Demeter biodynamic and CCOF organic certifications for the vineyard. Our production facility has been Demeter certified biodynamic and CCOF certified organic since 2019 and 2021 respectively. In December of 2022 we were awarded our Regenerative Organic Certification®. The tasting room and winery are located on our certified biodynamic and certified organic MAHA Estate Vineyard.

Extreme topography of south and west facing slopes that climb to 1800 feet continue to captivate us with the dynamic views of the coastal mountain range. Demeter BIODYNAMIC®, CCOF Organic, and Regenerative Organic Certified®.
