    Vino Vargas produces award-winning, limited production wines with a focus on balanced wines that will enhance every meal and delight your palate. Winemaker Pedro Vargas works to craft luxurious single-vineyard wines. Each wine has a unique name and unique story and has garnered awards from prestigious competitions such as the San Francisco Chronicle International Wine Competition and the Los Angeles Wine Competition. The collection of wines includes Pinot Noir, Tempranillo, Sangiovese, red wine blends based on Cabernet Sauvignon, Mourvedre, Syrah, and Grenache, as well as a rose wine and white wines made with Chardonnay, and Albariño. The winery is located in the hills of San Miguel, ust 2 miles west of Highway 101, and is part of the Paso Robles American Viticulture Area. The winery's unique, rustic setting among vineyards and horse pastures lends itself to helping visitors relax, take in the views, and slow down to focus on the wine and the experience of rural California.
