Visited the winery while on vacation. We were greeted warmly and the wine was excellent. Throughly enjoyed the drive and We plan to visit again next year. Recommend this winery to anyone that appreciates growers that don't use pesticides and keep the grapes organic.

Absolutely fantastic place! Our suggestion is that you leave it until the end of your tour because you will be treated to the most amazing Zin and finish off with the most delicious Port ever!

Frank makes the most fantastic wine if you love zin and you love good zin. Perfect paso flavor. 2011 was a fantastic year...can't wait for 2012 to be released. Frank is a great guy, knowledgable and enjoyable to talk to, an honor to know.

This area is well known for producing some of the finest red wines, and the climate is particularly well-suited to growing Zinfandel grapes.

Frank makes great wine. Small Productions top shelf. Frank knows how to take care of his vines and that combined with his wine making knowledge makes this the very best zinfandel the entire Paso Robles area has to offer. The zinfandel port is fabulous as well, so if you like Zinfandel, get over to Zin Alley. If you don't like... More
