Our Estate Vineyard
We’ve had the opportunity to visit wineries across California, Europe, and South America for years before we discovered what is now our favorite place on earth for enjoying exceptional wine: Paso Robles. We were enchanted by the friendly, tight-knit community, rugged beauty, welcoming tasting rooms, and world class wines. In fact, Paso’s alluring wine lingered on our minds so strongly that we begun asking each other, “Couldn’t we build that winery we’ve talked about for decades right here in Paso?” This is when we began the search for a vineyard site in Paso. With the knowledge that Paso Robles was becoming California’s best growing region on the rise, we purchased a dynamic 25-acre Paso property in Westside Paso Robles with our long-time dream of crafting premium boutique Bordeaux style and Cabernet Sauvignon wines. As we’ve said, we want to make the wine we want to drink. That’s still our core mission. After all, if you’re not making that kind of wine you’d want to drink day in and day out, what’s the point?

Consulting Winemaker Anthony Yount said it best: our terroir at SIXMILEBRIDGE is nothing if not extreme. Were we crazy to plant Bordeaux varietal grapes into the face of an impossibly steep, untamed hillside overlooking the Westside of Paso Robles—best known as premier Rhone growing country? Maybe a little. But we’ve never run from hard work, and we knew the growing conditions rivaled the best in the world. Here, exceptional quality fruit is born from thick, rocky terrain. With staggering diurnal temperature swings of up to 50 degrees that soar and drop daily, our extremely concentrated, low-yield fruit is stressed, tried, and tested.
