Family owned & operated winery with local heritage and roots in the vineyard industry dating back to 1925. Known for our award winning Cabernet Sauvignon and Silken blend!
In 1925, the Parrish’s grandfather, Earl Henderson, moved to Atascadero – where he had PO Box One – and in 1927 planted and managed over 740 acres of wine grapes. But with the era of the Prohibition and Great Depression, Earl was unable to take the next step in owning his own winery – but this dream was not forgone for the family.
Fast forward to David Parrish, who started in the wine world in the 1970s developing new trellising techniques in Napa, working alongside greats like Robert Mondavi. With the vision of continuing the family legacy on the central coast, David planted 40 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon on his Creston ranch in 1995. In 2004, David fulfilled his grandfather’s dream by making his first vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon; in 2011 opened the tasting room in Downtown Paso Robles; and in 2013 and 2014 planted 80 acres in the Templeton Vineyard and 30 acres in the Adelaida Vineyard. The Adelaida winery and tasting room will open summer 2017. Truly committed to a family-run winery, David is joined in the business by his wife and co-owner, Lynn, son-in-law and Assistant Winemaker/Vineyard Manager, Ethan Ray, and daughter and General Manager, Cecily Parrish Ray.
