Attraction details
Owner description: The Merrill Family's agricultural heritage and grape growing history dates back at least 8 generations on California's Central Coast. A former family ranch still is home to a grape arbor planted in the 19th century. Today Dana and Marsha Merrill and son Matthew farm the vineyards, while Matthew's winemaking is complemented by winemaker par excellent, Jim Shumate. After nearly 30 years of growing grapes for many of the finest wineries in California, ranging from ultra premium small producers to the largest international brands, the Merrill's decided to produce their own wines. In addition to the family estate, the finest blocks of grapes from Santa Barbara and Monterey Counties are selected from vineyards managed by a sister firm, Mesa Vineyard Management, Inc. All wines produced are exclusively farmed by the Merrills who believe that control from planting and pruning through harvest, fementation and cellaring is critical for success. It also ensure a uniform dedication to Sustainability, which led our recent Certification to the SIP program within the Central Coast Vineyard Team. The family believes in community and industry involvement. Dana Merrill was the first San Luis Obispo County Chair of the California Assn of Winegrape Growers, a charter member of the pioneering vineyard Sustainability group, the Central Coast Vineyard Team and is a past two term Director of the Paso Robles Wine Country Alliance.

“Fruit Flies in the Wine”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2012

Yes, there were fruit flies in the wine and they were straining them out and pouring in to glasses. They were bent out of shape that we asked for new wine to be opened. Will not ever return.

“Paso's scenic vineyards and great wines!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2008

I recently had a chance to see a brand new tasting room in Paso Robles. I was very suprised to taste wines from a new winery that were excellent. The wines I tried were very polished - great Cab Sav, Merlot, ZIn Blend for the reds and two different Chard's-One was "unoaked" from Paso and one was lightly oaked from Santa Barbara County. The last White was a Viognier that was the one of the best white wines I have ever tried! The landscaping was beautiful, but not totally finished yet. I was told that they are adding a Depot to go next to their boxcar and Caboose that is next to the winery. The tasting room is a redone farmhouse that has a lot of charm.

I loved Pomar Junction!
