“Family vineyard”

Pipestone Vineyards
Ranked #96 of 166 things to do in Paso Robles
Attraction details
Reviewed 16 November 2012

This is a "real" vineyard where Jeff and Florence do all the work themselves with the exception of some picking help. They man the tasting room so you can talk to the actual farmers, not some part-time servers. The vineyard uses working horses for plowing. If you have only tasted in the glitzy corporate wineries, you need to expand your horizons with a visit to Pipestone.

This winery is quite a ways out. They indicate they have a picnic area, but it wasn't that inviting, a rustic table with not much of a view. The wines were fine, but they were only pouring five wines with a tasting fee of $10 that would be waived with a purchase of three bottles. Won't be visiting here again.

There in June 2012, my group and I loved the feeling of being at a homestead/farm, not just in a spiffy tasting room. The pourer was one of the owners and gave us a great deal of background about the place and their history with winemaking there. She explained differences in the varietals as well. An area outside is ideal for a picnic if you've brought along today's lunch. Came home with two outstanding wines that I can't wait to serve to guests, one a 2007 Cab/Syrah blend. One downside: though the fee was refundable upon purchase, their $10/person tasting charge seemed steep. Most places we visited charged $5 or nothing.

This is small production organic and historically picked winery where the red wine is yummy and the people are very friendly. You will really enjoy everything there. If you're wine tasting please make sure to stop at Pipestone.
