Shale Oak Winery Description

Shale Oak Winery was created out of careful respect for the natural resources on the west side of Paso Robles. Presenting a limited production of wines, the result is a holistic vision.

The Vision

With a keen eye on sustainability in every facet of our business, and adhering to the belief that form follows function, Shale Oak Winery was built by a carefully crafted team.  While each individual is a strong expert in her/his respective field, the group was able to synergistically come together to plan, plant and build a vineyard, winery and tasting room that would have next to zero impact on the surrounding environment.

The Vines
We have two estate vineyards, totaling just over 70 acres.  Both are farmed using sustainable practices, with careful attention paid to energy efficiency, water cleanliness and conservation, safe pest management and wild habitat preservation. We produce varietals that grow best in Paso Robles; Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Zinfandel, Grenache, Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot, Albariño, Viognier and Pinot Gris.

The Wines

With a limited-production of approximately 1500 cases, quality is apparent in every bottle of Shale Oak wine. 

Whether you’re a novice wine taster or have acquired a refined palate, our approachable style is sure to please.  From extraordinary single varietals to creative proprietary blends, each hand-crafted bottle reflects the sense of stewardship Shale Oak is founded on.

The Property

Visit the Central Coast's premier LEED certified winery.  Create your own wine tasting experience at our newly opened, avant-garde Guest Center.  Gather at our recycled-glass bar or enjoy tableside service in our intimate courtyard setting, or on the serene patio. During your stay, be sure to browse the unique gift shop featuring exceptional, eco-friendly treasures and picnic fare. We're family and pet friendly, always offering complimentary WiFi.

Hip, Casual, Green and Tasty!
New winery built with Green sensibilities and some really nice wine. Very hip and modern but still comfortable. They have a giant stained glass window and two outdoor decks to laz on. They have a nice Albarino and Cab plus Rhones. Great stop.

Sustainable with some Great Wines
This is a new tating room just of Hiway 46 West tucked back against a hillside. This I think is the most "Green" of all the wineries in Paso. Great looking with a very nice vibe and some rock'in wines to boot. They make Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot, a Red Rhône Blend, Syrah and a dry Albariño. They have two patios with comfy chairs and a lovely view.
