Our crew was on the Central Coast filming a series of tour videos. In this series we will be visiting local wineries and travel and all types of businesses.

We visited Pear Valley Vineyards

The genesis of the wine story for Pear Valley began in the late 60's when owner Tom Maas was stationed on an army base in the midst of a vineyard. Here he learned to love both wine and the vineyard.

At Pear Valley all of our wine is made from 100% estate grown fruit.

Our three Paso Robles Vineyards known as Pear Valley,  Mission Almond and Union Road are planted in premium fruit of French, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese descent. Our philosophy is to grow the best fruit possible and then interfere as little as possible. 

Our goal is to create unique vintages that reflect vibrant fruit nourished by ancient soils under ideal climate conditions while leaving little impact on the environment.

Our current offering includes Chardonnay (one that was aged in oak and another in stainless steel), Sauvignon Blanc, Muscat, Orange Muscat, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Zinfandel and our signature blend named "Distraction".

As the newer plantings in the vineyard mature, additional wines will be added to the line-up.

We have many exciting projects in the winery including the development of a Port-style Solera in six 1000 litre barrels. Our winery staff is often happy to show people around, so be sure to ask if a winery tour is available on your next visit.
