This is a very contemporary, modern winery with some pretty good wines (expensive) but the location alone is worth the drive up the windy and very steep driveway off of Peachy Canyon Road off of Highway 46 in Paso. The hilltop has a lawn with native/drought tolerant gardens, very nice. Nice wine tasting room with food for sale (light) The... More

Calcareous Vineyard offers one of the best hilltop views in Paso Robles wine country. It's a little bit out of the way, but well worth the drive through the celebrated Westside hills. The wines are meticulously crafted, slightly pricey, but among Paso Robles' finest efforts. Tasting fee is $10 for eight wines of your choice from a wine list of... More

The view is phenomenal from up here. You can picnic out front while enjoying your tasting. Great little stop on the way to Law. I didn't like any of the reds that i tried but just not my style of red.

We spent a week touring Paso Robles wineries with another couple. This one has a great view--second only to Daou--and great wines. The people working there are also very friendly and inviting. If you want either a great view or to taste great wines, go to Calcareous.

Wow this was one of the best wineries we visited. The view is superb and the wines are even better. The staff was very warm and inviting and we thoroughly enjoyed our time here. We even joined the wine club and met some locals that are also part of the wine club. It was such a great experience and I... More

Calcareous offers gorgeous views of Paso Robles wine country and beyond! The tasting room is a modern-meets-rustic architectural structure that is both spacious and welcoming. It houses a staff that has vast wine knowledge and a penchant for excellence in hospitality. Oh, and the wines! The rhone whites shy away from a sad, cloying North County standard, opting for a...

Phillippe, our server, was interesting and informative. We bought the 2013 Chardonnay - loved the buttery oak finish. Check out the drop dead view from the out door seating and go online for their music events. Definite revisit. Dog Friendly winery!!

We had a nice time at Calcareous. The wines were very good, we enjoyed everything we tasted and our pourer was very knowledgeable and a delight to converse with. The reds were well balanced, with more of a French flair rather than new world over the top fruit bombs with massive tannins and high alcohol. The whites were great as... More

The view is gorgeous and so relaxing. Wines are nice but what makes the difference is the knowledge, the availability and kindness of Philippe, one of their sommelier. For the French speakers (or not), ask for him!
