“An Increasinglky Rare Experience in Paso Robles”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2010

I can't comment on the casitas. I just want to tell you something about Wild Coyote winery.
I have lived in Paso for almost 10 years and long ago get tired of the wine tasting circuit. Recently, some family and friends came to visit for a week and, naturally, they wanted to do some wine tasting. I spent several days as their designated driver.

One thing that has apparently been lost in this fast-growing, attention-getting wine town is the presence of the owner and/or winemaker in the tasting room.

Instead, there are employees, most with only limited knowledge of what they are pouring and little or no knowledge of the winemaker or owner other that the obviously carefully rehearsed anecdotes clearly designed to talk up the greatness of the owner/winemaker. Most were college students with no connection to the wine industry at all.

I found most of these tasting rooms to offer a generic experience that left me feeling that my guests and I were cattle being run through a gauntlet: get them in the room, feed them a drop or two of wine, regurgitate a few boring anecdotes, then make them feel uncomfortable unless a purchase occurs. None offered to get a question answered by someone who actually had any knowlege and on at least two occasions provided clearly incorrect answers as if they were fact.

Not so at Wild Coyote. I hadn't been there in almost six years until today. Gianni Manucci is both owner and winemaker. He was there, in person, handling the entire tasting experience by himself. We were made to feel welcome the minute we walked in the door, even though there were several other groups already tasting. Gianni handed us a list of the wines he was pouring, explained that the (very reasonable) $5 tasting fee included a nice branded wine glass, and began pouring, all the while maintaining a low key conversation: it wasn't about him unless we asked about him. He made it about us. Some of the other groups left without a purchase. Gianni treated them just as warmly as he did those who bought wine. He answered technical questions with ease, even recalled that we has met once six years previously (he remembered where I was form and what I did for a living).

It's just a small thing, but having the vintner there makes it a wine experience, not just a wine tasting. And it was the ONLY winery over the course of three days where the guy who made the wine was there in the room.

I urge anyone who likes big reds (and WIld Coyote's wines are definitely big) to try Wild Coyote. Even if big reds are not your thing, go and see what a tasting room should be: the winemaker purveying his product. Gianni could teach a lot of the other Paso wine players a few things about how to treat the customer...

Gianni and his wife Kati know how to run a B & B and Winery. They go way out of their way to make you feel like you're part of their family. We had 5 couples with Harleys and Gianni and Kati even took time to join us one day with their Harley and show us some great riding. They are truely great people.

Proprietors Katie & Gianni bend over backwards to make their guests feel more like family and friends than guests at their Estate vineyard and B&B. With the peace and quiet and solitude found at Wild Coyote you can't help but leave work and the city behind you. Gianni's awesome big red wines and the hot tub certainly don't hurt either.

The rooms are all done in a New Mexico pueblo style that Katie has painstakingly decorated. The ambience transports you to another time and place where life was much simpler and slower. Did I mention Katie cooks up one heck of a meal for breakfast to get your day started?

Visit Sean (what a character) in the tasting room and use Wild Coyote as starting point to explore Paso's wine country or simply make wild Coyote your destination, you won't be disappointed either way.

We had a wonderful romantic weekend at this B&B.

It is well located to do some wonderful wine tasting at other places in the canyon. It is a bit of drive to local restaraunts but the bar-b-que grill on the patio is fun.

The rooms share a courtyard for socializing and sitting around the fire pit.

Each room is very quiet and well decorated. The view is incredible. Breakfast was wonderful and delivered when we wanted it.

  • Liked — Beautiful room with a great view.
  • Disliked — Long drive to restaraunts.

Thanks for the great review!! We really appreciate the feed back about our property and staff!!

One thing i just want to add is that we are located only 3 miles from downtown Paso Robles (less then a 10 Minute drive) which offers lots of variety on Food, Entertainment, Wine Tasting, Shopping, Concerts in the Park and Art Gallerys.

We look forward to seeing you again soon!!

This was our second time we had been to the Wild Coyote winery which is also a Bed and Breakfast. The winery has a Southwestern flair to it and is lots of fun. This winery is "the house of reds" and they produce some very nice Zins, Syrah and Merlot here. We shared a tasting out on the back patio, there were homemade Carne Asada tacos which hit the spot since it had been awhile since breakfast at La Quinta, there was also homemade Salsa and a fresh cabbage salad with corn and black beans.

We loved our time here and are considering joining their Wine Club, this place is not to miss for those of you who are looking for some big reds in a fun ambiance, the staff is also very friendly and they love what they do here!

I just got back from my stay at the Wild Coyote during the Paso Zinfandel Festival with my father. Gianni and Kati were wonderful welcoming hosts and their staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. The rooms are large, warm, cozy, absolutely immaculate and charmingly decorated in Santa Fe style. Their wines are excellent! Gianni is a great winemaker. Gianni and Kati put a lot of love into this place and it shows. The views from the rooms are absolutely breathtaking. It's a peaceful, healing place. Gianni's recommendations for wine-touring transportation were also excellent. We had a fantastic time!

We went for a third trip to Paso and because it was Holiday weekend most of the well known hotels were filled. We found Wild Coyote and loved it. A little gem in the vineyards, it was quiet comfortable and Gianni Mannuci makes very fine wines. We give it a must visit rating........loafsand fishes
