“Small, older winery with reasonably priced reds”
Review of Caparone Winery

Caparone Winery

Attraction details
Reviewed August 27, 2011

Out of the way older winery in a small building. Had five reds for tasting. I bought a merlot and a cabernet. All were priced at $14.00. Tasting was complimentary if not buying. Worth a visit.

Caparone Winery is owned and operated by one of the families that started the wine business in the Paso Robles area so in some sense a visit to them is like stepping back in time. Their wines are excellent and priced well below what a winery with a fancy tasting room would expect you to pay (got to recover that overhead, after all). Tasting is at a counter right in the barn where the wine is handled and your host will probably be one of the family members, who are treasure troves of information about making wines (interestingly, they are also jazz musicians). One more thing, all their wines are unfined and unfiltered, rare in this day and time even among the best of wines. If you want a Napa Valley kind of tasting experience this is not the place for you, but if you are actually interested in very good wine you can't do better.
