    Exclusively Pinot Noir since 1990
    Open Daily 10:30-5
    Home to 2015’s Winemaker of the Year & 2011's Wine Industry Persons of the Year: Owners Marc Goldberg & Maggie D'Ambrosia are dedicated to growing & producing 100% Estate, Burgundian-style Pinot Noir. The vineyard planted in 1990 was named for the cool Pacific Ocean winds that breeze through the Templeton Gap on the Westside of Paso Robles. Our 15-acre property is an ideal terroir for producing fine Pinot Noir due to our coastal influence, limestone and mineral-rich soil, wind, and cool nights.
    Windward Vineyard offers a unique experience: a vertical tasting of consecutive vintages of our estate Pinot Noir, with optional artisan cheese pairing. Each vintage is a true expression of the vineyard and weather for that year. Try our new creations, such as our white Pinot Noir and Pinot Rosé! Enjoy a glass on our patio overlooking our 15-acre estate. Play a game of bocce ball, sip wine by the glass, picnic under our umbrellas and nosh from our Petite Café Menu of artisan cheeses, local salami, truffle chips, and other bites.
    Windward Vineyard stays focused on their goal of producing a great American, Burgundian styled Pinot Noir and they have received worldwide recognition for their efforts. We are minimalists, we don’t acidulate, fine or filter, and we age in 100% French oak Barrels.
