Our goal is to showcase the very best of Paso Robles, a world-renowned wine region, in our destination winery, estate vineyard, and event space, opening in the fall of 2020. Inspired by the great domaines of France, here you can taste a wide variety of our Bordeaux-inspired wines among the breathtaking views of Paso Robles’ hillsides and the gentle scent of lavender.
Our name comes from the small lane that runs right up against our Chalk Knoll Vineyard, where it all began. It’s a beautiful place, surrounded by gently rolling hills and vineyards as far as the eye can see, and has always brought back fond memories of our family’s travels to France and the wines we’ve enjoyed there.
In the 1990s, the Stoller family planted Chalk Knoll Vineyard. Craig and Nancy Stoller later founded The Craig Stoller Collection, home to Paris Valley Road Estate Winery. With a rich history on the Central Coast and a background in vine growing, they are dedicated to showcasing the winegrowing potential that California’s Central Coast has to offer.
The favorable terroir of our first estate vineyard provides the ideal location for growing aromatic and complex fruit. The soil features Lockwood Loam and Santa Lucia Clay-Loam, which imparts the signature minerality to the berries. These geographical and climatic conditions lead to a long growing season which allows the fruit to develop an abundant flavor profile consistently from year to year.
“Wine is a part of my life. I absolutely love this living, breathing, evolving thing called wine.”
— Craig Stoller
