If you are looking to escape from it all, than Nadeau Family Vintners is the winery for you. Located in the Santa Lucia Mountains four miles west of Paso Robles, Nadeau Family Vintners is an estate micro-winery that produces small lots of genuinely hand-crafted wines, carefully guided through their development by Owners/Vintners Robert and Patrice Nadeau.
The winery specializes in huge, mountain grown Zinfandel wines, and the more austere red Rhone varietals, and when you visit, you should be ready for full blown, red wines that are generous in their varietal character and terroir.
The tasting room can be found at the end of a long, private drive that is surrounded by vineyards and the production facility that yields the winery’s small lot production. Enjoying the Nadeau Family Vintners wines at the intimate and cozy tasting bar you are likely to make a friend or two as you discuss the complexities of the wines that you are sipping together.
If you desire some fresh air and a place to kick up your heels and relax, you can head out to the large patio directly adjacent to the tasting room that includes tables and sun shades that invite you to relax and stay awhile. Perhaps a leisurely picnic is in order, or you can even have the tasting room attendant pass your wine out of a conveniently placed window in the tasting room should you not want to extract yourself from the beauty that surrounds you. Everything about this winery welcomes you to relax, become a part of the family and just enjoy.
