Nestled within a rolling landscape of oak trees, the vineyards are small, potent, and exquisite. The west side Paso Robles coastal estate takes full advantage of the excellent natural conditions: the mountainous terroir is known for its rocky, calcareous soil, and differing levels of hillside sun exposure allow vineyards to be specifically sited for each varietal.
This gives founding vintner, Michael Gill, the opportunity to cultivate luxurious wines unmatched in quality. Inspired by the historicism and beauty of illustrious French hunting lodges, the tasting room inspires images of time gone by. Nestled in the midst of surrounding vineyards and centuries-old oaks, it evokes a classicism and indulgence often unfound in Paso Robles.
Producing up to 1,000 cases when in full production, Michael Gill Cellars strives to stay at a smaller scale to keep as much consistency, control, and excellence in the wine as possible.
From the limestone-rich soils to the hot days and cool nights, Michael Gill Cellars has the perfect growing conditions to elegantly ripen such Rhone-style varietals as Syrah, Viognier, and Counoise. As a family vineyard, the vines receive the utmost care from founder Michael Gill, as well as other members of the family, to ensure both proper care and quality from the vine to the bottle.
