Family-run winery, beautiful grounds (perfect for a picnic!) and a lovely tasting room. They only produce Pinot Noir, so it's fascinating to do a vertical tasting of Pinots from 6 years in a row!

Stopped by Windward toward the end of the day and what a super finish. The vertical flight tasting was $10 and I liked every single one. The passion shows as talk and discussion lead to some special tasting. Super friendly staff and atmosphere. Highly recommend...More

With more than 200 wineries in Paso Robles, we were hard-pressed to pick a starting point. Using a great guide that my girlfriend had brought along, we discovered Windward. It was 104, so we stayed in the tasting room, forgoing the nice terraced picnic area....More

A short distance north of Hwy 46W, Windward has been producing consistently good pinots for years. We've found them best enjoyed within 5-6 years as the style produced tends to diminish after that. However they are very nice and still a good value, especially if...More
