The Paso Robles AVA which is located along California’s Central Coast about halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles. The Paso Robles AVA is characterized by a wide diversity of soil types, ranging from weathering granite and serpentine to shale and limestone, and it is not uncommon for several different soil types to be present in the same vineyard site. Climatically, the area is known for huge diurnal (day to night) temperature swings—as much as 40 to 50 degrees—during the growing season. This is brought about by a break in the
coastal mountain range known as the Templeton Gap, which allows coastal air and fog inland to alleviate the sweltering midday temperatures.
At Don Sebastiani & Sons, we strive to produce quality wine at an approachable price, regardless of the outcome of a particular growing season. Our winemaker Greg Kitchens works to create great wines that our customers identify as a reliable purchase. Kitchens has developed a distinctive character for each one of our brands. Each wine’s individual profile evolves with changes in established vineyard relationships, available fruit and flavor trends in the industry. Our winemaking approach at Don Sebastiani & Sons is to consistently create noteworthy wines in a style which is recognizably our own.
