Sculpterra Winery & Vineyards Description

Along the back roads east of Paso Robles seek out the winery estate of Sculpterra to experience a one of a kind wine tasting experience.  In addition to a fine portfolio of wines to taste you cannot miss the dramatic bronze and granite sculptures from artist John Jagger that adorn the property.

As you arrive at the estate you are greeted by a 14 feet tall, 17,000 pound cat. This magnificent entry sculpture, adorned with bronze whiskers and bronze claws, is one of a dozen artistic pieces that prowl the property. There is a magical dancing horse, a 16,000 pound mammoth, a prowling 15 foot puma and a 11 foot tarpin.

Inside is a showplace with heavy wood beamed ceilings, rock walls, art pieces and lovely details and finishes. Unique quality gift items are for sale as well as cookbooks, miniature sculptures, and kitchen and dining accessories. Picnic essentials are also available.

A long concrete tasting counter serves up wines grown from the estate vineyard. The wines are made using traditional gravity methods ensuring that the integrity of the wines stay intact. Wines are aged an average of 12 to 18 months in American, French and Hungarian oak. Make sure to try their estate Cabernet Sauvignon.

The Frankel family first planted pistachios’ on the ranch, followed by 20 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. After initial success with both plantings, Dr. Frankel expanded the vineyard operation in 1997 with additional Cabernet Sauvignon, 10 acres of Zinfandel and 10 acres of Merlot. Cabernet Franc, Mouvedre, Petite Sirah and Viognier are the most recent additions to the vineyard. Son Paul Frankel is the winemaker.

A portion of the proceeds from the sales of Sculpterra wine are donated to "His Healing Hands", a medical missionary foundation that sends medical missionary teams on short-term trips all over the world to care for the most needy under-privileged peoples on all five continents.

East Side Surprise
rockedge, OakPark
In general, I like the Paso west side wines better, but these were very tasty, smooth but dry, actually bought a whole case. The winery is surrounded by gorgeous sculptures, the staff was great and the grounds were well kept, you can easily spend many hours here.

Unique Experience
A very unique experience. A newer elegant tasting room. The grounds alone are worth the trip. The wine was good but you were paying for the artwork as well as the wine. Worth stopping but not worth it as the main supplier for your wine collection.

Rocko, Santa Barbara
Quite the place with all the sculptures around. The wine was very good. Cab Franc, Cab Sauv all very representative of the area and worth buying.

WineHound, San Luis Obispo
This large property on the East side of Paso is a great example of a family operated business that started almost 30 years ago with a vineyard and now at just 1200 cases is already producing great wines. The grounds and sculpture are unreal and the wines are a great value. Be sure to try the Statuesque, a super blend of Cab, Syrah and Petite Syrah.

Fabulous Sculptures
joeguy3, Santa Rosa
Sculpterra winery is magnificent. The granite sculptures from artist John Jagger are gorgeous and are all around the property. It really gave the winery it's uniqueness. Although pretty much all the wine that I tasted was great, my favorite was the Petite Sirah.
