If you like great wine and beautiful views, this is a must-go-to place. The view is spectacular and so is the wine. The wines are the Rhone varietals (GSM) but in the California style – lots of fruit and flavor. We went mid-week and had the tasting room to ourselves so our server, Chris, could spend a lot of time with us. We bought a bottle of Zin for dinner. Nice picnic area that takes in the great view.

Another favorite location, fantastic view with lots of outdoor seating to enjoy! The Syrah is a favorite of ours. They make some good red blends. The staff is always friendly. Great tasting room, souvenirs, etc. Good place to purchase a BYO wine bag (like a Built bag).

I knew that they had great views but was not prepared for how stunning they were! They wines here were besutiful the pourer knowlegable and they had a pairing menu for the weekend (12-3) from Thomas Hill Organics which was amazing! The drive in on Peachy Canyon is glorious. There are no downsides!

A beautiful view and great wine enjoyed with a nice Thomas Hill Organics lunch. We spent several hours just relaxing, enjoying the wine and the view and we weren't ready to leave. A must do in Paso wine country.

There are good reds here, but they are a little over priced. The view is great, but the drive to get here a bit long on narrow roads. Food was from Thomas hill organically. Good pairings. Ask to play Bocce Ball on their court. They waive tasting fees if you buy wine.
