Ranchita Canyon Vineyard

Open Thursday – Monday 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Overlooking beautiful Pleasant Valley, the Ranchita Canyon Vineyard and boutique winery is family-owned and operated with the goal to achieve rich, concentrated, bold fruit for our estate wines. The unique hilly location provides great views, and helps the carefully hand-tended vines produce high quality fruit. We have south facing rolling hills at 1000′ — 1400′ elevation, with primarily calcareous soil. A vertical “V” shaped trellis system is used for optimum flecked sunlight. We farm using the latest best practices for canopy and irrigation management, and maintain balanced vines for even fruit maturation — with low yields per vine/acre. The vineyard is hand pruned and hand harvested, and our farm plan emphasizes sustainable practices. Our fruit is known for making award-winning vineyard designated wines, and our own artisan wines are now being widely acclaimed. Come visit and see how we are “Taking wine to greater heights…..”


Ranchita Canyon Vineyard

The original vineyard was planted in 1970, and there are still vines from that planting — Old Vine Zinfandel, and Old Vine Petite Sirah. There have been additional plantings over the years, and we now have 11 different varieties planted. We are primarily growers, and sell about 90% of our wine grapes to other wineries.Location
We are in the Paso Robles appellation, and are northeast of Paso Robles, and east of San Miguel.Vineyard Description
