    The MAHA Estate in the hills west of Paso Robles is home to our 60 acre ranch and certified biodynamic and certified organic vineyard. Winemaker/owners Cris and JoAnn Cherry are hands on in all areas of farming and production at the Villa Creek estate winery. We continue to purchase grapes from our region's most esteemed vineyards and strive to create exciting wines that reflect the land from which they originated.

    • It's supreme location, 8 miles due west of Paso Robles, attracted us to this 60 acre gem in 2003. 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.
