Owner description: Adelaida Cellars' family owned vineyards include seven distinct properties totaling 168 acres in the craggy mountainous terrain of Paso Robles' Adelaida District. Only 14 miles from the Pacific Ocean on steep elevated sites, a diverse planting of 24 varieties with an emphasis in Rhônes, old vine pinot noir, dry farmed zinfandel, and mountain style cabernet sauvignon, our stressed vines produce low yields of precise flavor.

This was our second visit to this winery. The wines were just as great as the first time and the servers were just as friendly. We visit Paso Robles 2 times/year and this will always be one of our stops as we have not had a wine there that was not to our liking. We ended up having a lot of people with us on this trip (13) and everyone was impressed. That only happened at one other winery.

Beautiful, scenic winery with a dog friendly area- worth the bit of a windy, though pretty, drive.
Friendly, knowledgeable (what food to match with each wine)
staff. Generous tasting-about 8 wines and every one was delicious- from simpler house type wines to the fancier, high priced ones. Relaxed and no pressure to buy- truly fun and enjoyable. Our new favorite winery!

We visited many wineries and this one was our favorite. Their wines were wonderful and can't be found where we live. We just may have to join the wine club. It would be well worth it. The tasting room is much simpler than most others but definitely worth the visit.

Tony at the bar was very good. Knowledgeable and asked us what we like. Bread sticks at the bar. Lots of wine to try. We liked the blends. We will be back.

Long Drive to get here, but we had an enjoyable visit. The Tasting fee is $10 but if you mention the "Day Trips" article it is a complimentary tasting for two. Also, they will waive the tasting fee if you purchase a bottle.

We visited to try their simulated Ice Wine. It is blend of 2008 and 2009 vintage half Muscat and half Viognier and since the grapes. Traditional ice wines are made from grapes that have been frozen on the vine for a minimum of five days. Because of our California climate, this is an impossible task. Adelaida utilizes the "Méthode d Cyrogenic" (freezing the grapes at an extremely low temperature). The grapes are harvested and pressed upon arrival; the juice is then stored in their "ice box" and kept frozen for several days. Every week the frozen juice is drained, separating the frozen water from the still frozen juice, concentrating from 26° to 36° Brix. The wine is given time to return to room temperature, allowing for the onset of its primary fermentation, and aged for 18 months in stainless steel barrels before being released.

The Ice wine lived up to the hype. There also tasted several other good wines here. We bought the "Inventor" which at $25 was an excellent deal and a bottle of the Ice Wine for $35
