Christian Lazo - Wine Tastings $5
After buying the ol' McGillis place in 2002, Steve Christian and Lupe Lazo quickly became entrenched in improving the neglected vineyard, and growing Zinfandel.
After what Steve affectionately refers to as "making every known mistake in farming", they fell under the rare tutelage of their neighbor and well-known pioneer of dry-farmed, head pruned Zinfandel, Richard Sauret. As their learning curve improved and demand for their fruit increased, Steve and Lupe purchased additional neighboring acreage of Zinfandel, Barbera and Petite Sirah directly from Sauret.
Christian Lazo Winery soon followed and they have succeeded in producing some Paso Robles classics.
Our tasting room in Downtown Paso Robles is open Thursday, Friday, Monday, Tuesday from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday and Sunday from Noon to 8 p.m. and Wednesday by appt only.

Coupled with the infectious passion and gracious, family style hospitality of the Daou brothers, Georges and Daniel, the result is pure magic. The kind of magic that comes in a bottle.

Cabernet Sauvignon is a brash, vigorous vine that grows easily in a variety of different soils all over the world. The Cabernet grape survives cold winters and buds late. However the Cabernet grape does need dry, well-drained soils and lots of sunshine to ripen properly.
This explains why the shale rich earth of San Miguel and Paso Robles are its perfect environment.

Our vines grow in a lean soil layered with calcareous shale, limestone, clay and sand. The varied soils are the key to complexity in the wines.
We employ low-impact and sustainable agricultural practices which entail cover cropping with perennial grasses, water conservation and recycling grape pomace into mulch.
This high-quality mulch helps the soil organisms proliferate, which in turn help the plants to uptake nutrients, discounting the need for harsh chemical fertilizers.
At harvest, the fruit is hand-picked and brought into the winery in the cool of the morning. We process the fruit without the use of pumps and augers to minimize handling.
Our tasting room is open daily from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. with extended hours during winery events.
