all about wines and recipes

Wines and Recipes VineyardsWines and Recipes was founded in 1970 in Paso Robles and is the areas best boutique vineyard with the best wine club. Surrounded by award-winning vineyards, the beauty of this unique winery is as appealing as its red wines. Wines and Recipes’s award-winning winemaker, along with historical vineyards, combine to create wines that express the nature of this celebrated wine region.

Wines and Recipes VineyardOur highly sought after wines are created exclusively with high-quality grapes from our family run vineyard and made in an earth friendly, balanced style that is good for the environment. We employ winemaking techniques that preserve the wines nuances and highlight the unique qualities of our red wines. We always harvest our grapes weeks before our neighbors do and quite often rely on the naturally occurring yeasts from our vineyard for fermentation. It’s our belief that making organic wines is a full circle process that depends on healthy and organic soil, natural winemaking and doing the right thing.

Wines and Recipes GrapesWe feel that Wines and Recipes is one of the nicest vineyards you’ll ever get to visit. The wine is really amazing and the people that work here are really helpful and friendly. Wines and Recipes is open year-round, 6 days a week, making it very convenient to come on by any time you need your wine fix. In addition to our amazing Muscat, we also offer great pizzas, ice cold beer and a few mixed drinks. We also have a large indoor seating area and three gorgeous outdoor terraces that overlook our vineyard and the beautiful countryside. These are nice spots to drink one or two of our delicious bottles of red wine.
