Cerro Prieto is a small family vineyard with cellars in the heart of the Templeton Gap off of Highway 46. This winery produces premium Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Pinot Noir, and Sauvignon Blanc. Their consistent ultra-premium wines are due to three things: extremely low crop loads - which ensure every grape has adequate resources to mature and grow, terroir (superior environment in which the vineyard is grown), and the loving individual care given to all vines in this small boutique vineyard.
In the old West, the term "line shack" referred to a small cabin built on the open range where cowboys could take shelter from natureâ€™s wrath.
Bob and Daphne Balentineâ€™s â€œLine Shackâ€ was discovered in 1989 when their family acquired a small ranch in Chualar Canyon, Monterey County, California. The only building on it was a rundown cabin affectionately called the â€œLine Shackâ€. Soon this building was remodeled and became a favorite place to gather and celebrate family, food and friendship. In 2004, Bob and Daphne decided to quit their day jobs and make a living out of their passion for fine wine and great food. The initial concept was to make very limited quantities of wines representing Southern Monterey County varietals. After many years of growth and success Line Shack Winery is proud to offer superb quality wines at exceptional values for your enjoyment.
Prizm Winery is a new wine label launched in 2013 by the owners and operators of Dâ€™Anbino Vineyards & Cellars in Paso Robles.

Prizm aims to bring these special wines to those who are enthusiastic about the unique vineyard and the winery practices employed. After a visit to the Prizm Winery, customers will be educated in sustainable agriculture and what makes natural winemaking techniques worth the extra consideration.
Vista Del Rey
Vista Del Rey - "View of the King" in Spanish - was the name chosen by Dave King for the eight-acre dry-farmed Zinfandel vineyard he purchased in 1994. Situated on a hillside just northwest of Paso Robles, the vines are over 30 years old. King calls this original planting the Hacienda (Home) vineyard, while a newer block planted in 1996-97 provide the source for Barbera, another vintage of Vista Del Rey.
Vista Del Rey celebrated their 15th anniversary in 2011. The winery is a small, hands-on, "mom & pop" operation, specializing in hospitality and offering a selection of gourmet food items and wine accessories. Older vintages of the Kings' wines are often available; and friends of wildlife are always welcome to this idyllic winery.
