Central Coast Wineries

Something magical is happening to the California winery landscape

While Napa Valley has been bathing itself in Arabian mansions and overpriced munchies, and Sonoma County seems lost in a Jacuzzi of romancing the Pinot, San Luis Obispo County has been quietly working away at becoming the next Wine Country King.

Blessed with a perfect climate for growing both wine grapes and olives, the Central Coast of California is now the new contender for the wine-producing crown. See video from Wine Spectator.

And Paso Robles, once a town you had to go through to get to Santa Barbara, is becoming King Arthur in a growing gathering of Knights of Vinification.

Merlin to this group of visionaries is the Paso Robles Wine Country Alliance, a nonprofit organization promoting the Paso Robles AVA.

Lovely and affordable B&B's now dot the countryside in this newest of kingdoms and tourism is blossoming on the Central coast.

This is not only because a trip to the Central Coast is far more affordable than enduring the traffic-clogged drive to Napa Valley for a $40 tasting of three sips of wine.

It is because Central Coast Wines are excellent and affordable. The kindness of the people who have created this new kingdom of vineyards and olive groves is only a bonus.

We hope you enjoy your next visit to the Paso Robles AVA and please give them our best from Wine Country Welcome.

Planted in 1989 and established (bonded) in 1998, Zenaida Cellars specializes in wines with a focus on sustainably-farmed fruit from the West side Paso Robles Estate. The Estate is located in the heart of the Templeton Gap and comprised of Zinfandel, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Mourvedre was planted on the Estate just this year for a 2014 first crop expected. 3,000-4,000 cases are produced each year under the Zenaida Cellars and ZC labels from a combination of the Estate fruit and fruit from a few of our favorite Paso Robles grape growers.

Juan Nevarez and Harry Fralich have been trusted fruit sources as we have added more blends to our line up in the last few vintages.

Get the full wine country experience by spending a week or weekend upstairs in our Eco-friendly guest lodging featuring a two-bedroom Loft with a full kitchen and fireplace and a Studio that looks into the winery barrel room.

We encourage you to cook on-site and enjoy the winery grounds in full capacity. Both units exit out to a large deck with a 180 degree view of rolling vineyards. Head downstairs for a tasting anytime you run low on wine.

Our tasting room is open daily from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. with extended hours during winery events.
