  • About
    Enjoy highly rated and delicious wines made by Cris and JoAnn Cherry on their boutique west side estate. Consistently named one of the best tasting rooms in Paso Robles, we hang our hat on treating every guest to a warm, informative exchange rather than a sales pitch. Since 2001, we have been sourcing Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre grapes from vineyards that are farmed without pesticides and herbicides. The tasting room and winery are located on our certified biodynamic and certified organic MAHA Estate Vineyard.
  • Vineyard Details
    • 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.
