Attraction details
Owner description: The Merrill Family's agricultural heritage and grape growing history dates back at least 8 generations on California's Central Coast. A former family ranch still is home to a grape arbor planted in the 19th century. Today Dana and Marsha Merrill and son Matthew farm the vineyards, while Matthew's winemaking is complemented by winemaker par excellent, Jim Shumate. After nearly 30 years of growing grapes for many of the finest wineries in California, ranging from ultra premium small producers to the largest international brands, the Merrill's decided to produce their own wines. In addition to the family estate, the finest blocks of grapes from Santa Barbara and Monterey Counties are selected from vineyards managed by a sister firm, Mesa Vineyard Management, Inc. All wines produced are exclusively farmed by the Merrills who believe that control from planting and pruning through harvest, fementation and cellaring is critical for success. It also ensure a uniform dedication to Sustainability, which led our recent Certification to the SIP program within the Central Coast Vineyard Team. The family believes in community and industry involvement. Dana Merrill was the first San Luis Obispo County Chair of the California Assn of Winegrape Growers, a charter member of the pioneering vineyard Sustainability group, the Central Coast Vineyard Team and is a past two term Director of the Paso Robles Wine Country Alliance.

“The best little winery”
Reviewed 18 October 2012

If you have not tried Pomar Junction, you are missing out, They have improved dramatically in the past year and I see a very big improvement to come, the wines are so tasty and they have great events. The new Trainwreck wine coming out now is going to be an award winner in my prediction. A beautiful setting to enjoy the afternoon or evening during one of the events.

“A great winery with amazing views!”
Reviewed 26 August 2012

We had been meaning to stop by Pomar Junction Winery for quite a while. Went in and was immediately struck by the amazing views, vineyard rows and beautiful trees. As we meandered toward the tasting room, browsed the gift area. Tasted the line up an chatted with the very nice and knowledgeable staff in the tasting room. A wonderful and very "Paso" experience. Pomar has an excellent Syrah Rose as well as their bigger red line up. Great Zin and the reserve Cabernet Sauvignon was excellent. This is definite place to taste and chill out with great views in Paso.
