Owner description: Le Cuvier is a boutique winery founded by Paso Robles legend John Munch. Committed to natural yeast fermentation, extensive neutral oak aging and dry-farmed fruit, Le Cuvier produces wines of a distinct, gnarly character. We charge $15 per tasting, which includes five wines with homemade food pairings. For each bottle purchased, one tasting fee is waived. In addition to spectacular wine, our hilltop location features breathtaking views and outdoor seating.

We enjoyed our time at Le Cuvier, great presentation and information about the wines and wine making appealed to us a wine makers. The information and wine making may be too much for some but I think everyone needs to try it. Small pairing tastes with each wine made it stand out from many others that do not offer such or do in a generic fashion. I enjoyed the wine and will be back again.

I am welcomed to Le Civier with a beautiful view of the countryside with chairs to encourage the viewing. There is outside seating under a big gnarly tree as well.
Inside is a TRUE wine tasting with the most delicious small food taste that really brings out the flavor of both wine and food. Now if I could just get the recipes to go along with the wonderful wines I brought home. Great, friendly staff. This is a MUST VISIT and they are happy to refer you to other sites as well.

Referred by our hosts and was amazed at this location and service. On top of a hill overlooking the area with a small tasting room. Wines are paired with a small taste to enhance the flavor of the wine - so well done! Ended up buying a bottle of Zinfandel.

We became members after my wife's first visit a few years ago. The wines are distinctive and delicious. On every visit to Paso Robles, Le Cuvier is a must stop for us. The staff at the tasting room is always gracious, friendly, and a pleasure to visit with. Small plate pairings are offered - quite a treat! They have an excellent chef whose efforts should be noted as she creates wonderful treats to be enjoyed with the wine. The view looking east is stunning and we usually open a bottle and sit outside overlooking the valley to take it all in. One of the great things to note about wine at Le Cuvier is its ability to stand up after being opened for a day or so. Looking forward to our next trip to the area!

Le Cuvier came highly recommended to us by Chamisol and Kynsi wineries in Arroyo Grande (both amazing and worth a visit as well). But the wine at Le Cuvier was the highlight of our day trip to Paso Robles. There was such an elegance and artful craft to these wines... really difficult to put into words. But I must say that it certainly helped that they offered a free amuse-bouche food pairing that was created by a local chef... really brought each the wines to life.

So rather than purchasing all their wines and carting them back home I signed up for a membership. Could not be more pleased and looking forward to the first shipment in a couple of weeks. Highly recommend!
