Just off Highway 46 West, sits a grouping of large, attractive, modern Victorian style buildings that serve as a winery, tasting room and Bed & Breakfast. The circular drive leads you to a brick path and the gardens leading to the covered veranda.
Designed for comfort and relaxation, Summerwood’s large European style tasting room boasts plush, overstuffed chairs and a warm, crackling fireplace. The room has wood beamed ceilings and wood and tile inlaid floors, along with their black marble topped tasting bar.
For guests interested in sitting and sipping outside, French doors open onto an expansive brick deck, overlooking the estate vineyards and the rolling hills of west Paso Robles. There is also a private covered gazebo with room for a dozen visitors equipped with heaters for cool evenings. Informal tours can be arranged of the adjacent winery building. The boutique displays a good selection of logo clothes, wine accessories, wine books and a rotating themed display of culinary goodies.
The extensive vineyard is enclosed by hundreds of feet of a white picket fence and planted to Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. They are grown with high density plantings, minimal irrigation and reduced crop loads which result in smaller berry size — maximizing varietal character and intensity. Summerwood utilizes cover crops, compost and beneficial insect habitats to maintain vineyard health. Additional grapes are purchased from neighboring “west side” vineyards as well as from Templeton and southern Monterey County.
In addition to their Cabernet Sauvignon the winery produces mostly red Rhone style wines including some interesting blends and a Zinfandel Port. The wines are only available at the winery and through their wine club. There is a nine room luxury B&B set in the vineyards, with each room boasting a fireplace and private balcony.↑ Less
