On the Road With The Wine Wrangler: Calcareous Vineyards

Taste Rhone Style Wines with The Wine Wrangler
Paso Robles Wine County is buzzing with activity as both visitors and locals enjoy themselves, wine tasting with The Wine Wrangler, preparing for the upcoming International Chardonnay Symposium, and buying their tickets to the upcoming 34th annual Paso Robles Wine Festival. From the looks of things, May is going to be a busy month for wine lovers and in Paso Robles Wine Country, the beautiful weather is just another reason to enjoy wine tasting at the nearly 200 wineries that call the Paso Robles Wine Region home.

This week, take a ride with The Wine Wrangler as we bring guests to some of their favorite wineries—and ours, too. We often have our wine tasting guests request a recommendation for a winery that offers delicious wines and magnificent views and while we have many to share, one of our favorite places to visit is Calcareous Vineyards.

The dream of father and daughter, Lloyd Messer and Dana Brown, Calcareous Vineyards stretches over 342 acres and sits 1,800 feet above sea level on a foundation of solid calcareous rock. These terroir driven wines are a labor of love. The Rhone style wines are not only well-received by wine lovers the world over, but are at the top of the list for favorite local wines and the spectacular views only add to the sensual experience.

The wines of Calcareous Vineyards include: Chardonnay, Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Viognier, white Rhone blends, and a variety of red Rhone and Bordeaux varietals. The winery features a picnic area, is available for special events, and offers a special food and wine pairing menu available for purchase (on the weekends) from Thomas Hill Organics.

If you’re ready to taste wine at Calcareous Vineyards and other wineries in Paso Robles Wine Country then going on a wine tasting adventure with The Wine Wrangler is the best opportunity to learn about the wines from the Paso Robles Wine Region while learning about local history and enjoying the scenic views. Let our drivers do the driving; you can enjoy the wine tasting.
