Erich planted his vineyards precisely throughout the Paso Robles appellation to take advantage of the unique microclimates that would best suit each grape varietal. All three of our vineyards are located on the west side of Highway 101. We believe this area of limited water, shallow, rugged, rocky, calcareous soil produce some of the finest wines in Paso Robles, and among the finest in California.
The Live Oak Vineyard, Willow Creek District
We grow numerous grape varietals on our vineyards including Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Petite Sirah, Chardonnay, and Roussanne to name a few. Some of our favorite grapes grown on our vineyards in Paso Robles
are native to the Rhône region of France. We love working with some of the more popular Rhône varietals such as Mourvèdre, Syrah, and Grenache, and experimenting with many different blends as well as pure varietal bottlings surrounding
