These Zinfandels are the heart of Paso! Frank is an authentic wine maker that reminds us of when we first started coming to Paso 20 years ago. While the bottles are on the higher end, they are worth every penny! There is not one bottle...More

Small winery. The vines never receive any water. The 5 wines were all great. All bottles cost $47.00. Loved the winemaker's attitude about his wines. Will return.

Great chat with the owner/farmer/winemaker. This place is a gem because this man is doing it the right way... small lot farming with a passion for creating great wines!

Visited the winery while on vacation. We were greeted warmly and the wine was excellent. Throughly enjoyed the drive and We plan to visit again next year. Recommend this winery to anyone that appreciates growers that don't use pesticides and keep the grapes organic.
