Lone Madrone Description

The tasting room has two wine tasting bars and plenty of outdoor seating. Inside is a warm inviting space to try their many wines. A great gift shop has many unique items, such as sculpted metal artwork, La Chamba Columbian (a fair-trade organization that imports gorgeous deep black Columbian clay pottery for use as cookware) and custom-made candles along with quality wine accessories and picnic supplies. 
 
Owned by the British born winemaker and former chef Neil Collins, his wife Marci and Neil's sister Jackie Meisinger. Neil has honed his craft at three prestigious central coast winery operations (Wildhorse Winery, Adelaida Cellars and Tablas Creek) before starting out on his own venture. His original winemaking experience came from the famed southern Rhone estate of Chateau de Beaucastel in the Chateauneuf-du-pape region. 
 
Lone Madrone is producing up to 19 different wines from individual vineyards, including, Roussanne, Nebbiolo Rose, IL Toyon Nebbiolo, Mourvedre, Barbera, Zinfandel, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Picpoul Blanc and a number of blends. Neil uses Organic & Biodynamic Grapes. For a unique treat try their bottle-fermented ciders, Bristols and Bristols Extra.

Truly, the perfect afternoon retreat for a picnic and a bottle of Lone Madrone wine. The rustic building is surrounded by vineyards and mature oaks.

“We have tried to create a comfortable atmosphere that also matches the elegance of Neil’s wines. One of the most common remarks we hear is that people just love the feel of the property and the tasting room,” says Jackie. “We encourage people to bring a picnic and enjoy everything the property has to offer while tasting some of Paso Robles’ best wines at Lone Madrone.”

Old Hat & Zintacular!
tculcasi, Las Vegas
The property is really sweet with Kenneth Volk attached- you get a discount on tasting if you go there too. There is also a wonder herb garden/organic nursery outside. The speak in detail about the products and the store inside the tasting room is fun.

Great stop at Lone Madrone. Loved the mix of wines and the staff was cool. Nice grounds to wander around. It feels like a family run place with lots of style but still friendly and approachable, just like the wines.

This is a nice location to taste wine. Unfortunately the wine is not awesome. It is good, but this same wine maker produces better tasting wine at Tablas Creek.

Rained but Nice!

Beautiful tasting room with energetic staff! The pace of the tasting was very nice, not too slow or too fast. The staff was attending more than one group, but never made me feel that I was forgotten. I ended up buying 2008 La Mazcla & 2007 Points West Red and can't wait to open them!

The Lone Madrone Tasting Room is inviting, warm, and the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about the wines. Beautiful gift shop! The wines are superbly crafted. I particularly liked the unique red blends - Old Hat, Alproja, Barfendel - and the Roussanne and Viognier.

A must-visit winery on your next Paso Robles wine tasting trip.
tsunami78, San Luis Obispo
As a Central Coast native, I feel rather spoiled with the sheer number of good wineries in the area. That said, I often have friends visiting who ask for recommendations when arranging for a tasting trip. Lone Madrone is one of the truly exceptional wineries in Paso Robles, and always makes my list. The winemaker has learned from some of the best in the industry, and he has taken those experiences and built on them. While his focus tends to be on Rhone varietals, he has a hard time turning away good fruit, which is evident when you look at the sheer number of varietals and blends available in the tasting room. My personal favorite this year is the Bailey Ranch Zinfandel, but there is something for everyone to enjoy at the tasting room. In addition to a charming environment filled with many pieces of fine art and hand made furniture, you will find a gorgeous picnic friendly garden area. Also on the property is an organic herb farm with lots of goodies. If you are making a trip to Paso Robles, Lone Madrone should definitely be on your itinerary. Cheers!

Lone Madrone is Cool
James, Santa Monica
This winery tasting room is back by a extensive garden and nursery. The place is warm and inviting with very unique metal sculptures and gift items for sale. The real winners are the wines. Rhone style, richly flavored and ready to drink. The Syrah and the Viognier were to die for. We love this place and will be back.

Basil and wine--so fine!
Rocko,
This winery is on the property of a very cool herb farm and they have a basil festival every year. This year it was very fine and along with the wine tasting made for a fun day out and about. We recommend a stop here.

Kendra, Fresno
We loved this stop along the west side of Paso Robles. Very cool and hip herb garden with animals and plants to check out. The Rhone wines here were exceptional especially the Syrah and Viognier. Pleasant people added to our stop. Was glad to find this stop.

Paso_Zin_Man, Paso Robles
The '04 'Old Hat' Zin was great! Worth the trip just for that, in and of itself. But plenty of other nice offerings as well. I tend to go for Zins, but my party enjoyed the Rousanne very much as well. Nice tasting room too!
