Pianetta winery is located on the vineyard, fourteen miles north of the downtown Paso Robles tasting room. The majority of the grapes harvested are sold to a major premium winery. Their success with our grapes as well as their encouragement inspired us to develop a small winery to identify the wine from this vineyard.
The first vintage yielded 370 cases of 2002 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon. Since then, we have grown to a 2700 case production and added Shiraz, Syrah, a Syrah/Cabernet blend, and a Rose style wine to our Estate wines, as well as Sangiovese, Petite Syrah, Zinfandel, and a Tuscan style blend from the Paso Robles appellation. The grapes received into our winery come from the terraced slopes, and are picked by hand. The grapes are then de-stemmed and lightly crushed and fermented. After the wine is drained and pressed, it is aged in predominantly French oak barrels for 18 months, then bottled by hand.
All of the wines are well-balanced with a solid fruit base, aged in dominant tight grained oak barrels, and focus on the best the vineyards produce. We have come a long way from the early farming and home made wine days. We invite you to enjoy the vintages.
