Paso Robles Wine Producers

Anyone know of any really good small producer wines from Paso Robles? Any vineyards that are dry-farmed, organically or biodynamically farmed and fermented using natural/native yeasts would be great! Thanks!

  1. There are over 80 winery/vineyards in Paso, I think that it might be difficult for us to answer your question specifically. Try this site

    Good luck!

      There are also a lot of threads on the board about it already.

      Like this one that went on forever about ones to avoid:

      Off the top, many of them are dry-farmed and use native yeasts.

      Ambyth is Biodynamic.

      Tablas Creek (some dry farmered like the Mourvedre on scruffy hill) all native yeasts and organic.

      Dante Dusi Zinfandel is dry farmed but not organic. They use it at Turley, Four Vines, and the family J Dusi.

      Pipestone is organic if I recall.

      but will have all the info you need.

      You can also check out my site for a map to all the local wineries I will look into it and add organic and biodynamic info to the links.
