Wonderful wine selection in a comfortable setting with friendly and knowledgeable pourers. We were fortunate to meet the winemaker herself (and her tortoise). The winemaker is creative in her process, and the pourer was able to describe how that translated into the wines we tasted. I've been to many wineries (I'm from Napa), but found the Desparada wines stood out in a good way.

Excellent wine tasting hosted by very knowledgeable vintner Janey. Outstanding selection of Sauvignon Blancs and blended red wines. Great stop within Tin City in Paso Robles.

Tucked away in a corner of Tin City is this unique winery tasting room, absolutely loved the blended Bordeaux called Sackcloth and Ashes. Interesting décor with great service will certainly revisit next time we are in town.
TIP. Tastings are by appointment only on Thursday - Monday 9:45 am - 4 pm so call before you visit.

Went to a great tasting appointment in the heart of Tin City. Very personal tasting with with a knowledgeable professional telling the story of the wines and the winery. Purchased 3 different red wines and each was unique but all very good. We would highly recommend this winery and will return!

Hands down one of the better wineries in the Paso Robles area. It is in Tin City, and shares a parking lot with Aaron wines, and Wine Shine. The Sauvignon Blanc was a great wine and it is unfined/unfiltered which uninformed people think is a flaw, and suggest decanting. Fining and filtering removes the true characteristics of the wine. It is like ordering a banana split without the ice cream or the banana.
This winery is unique in that it uses concrete wine tanks.

This is one of the best wineries i have ever been to. Wine is my hobby and I have been to hundreds of wineries in the USA and Italy. Vailia From is making truly exciting wines. Jenny who was doing the tasting was such a treat and made us feel very welcome. You must call and make an appointment but that is due to the fact that they want to give truly personal service. The wines are so special due to the heart and soul that is being poured into the effort. Had a bottle of the Amphora Sauvignon Blanc last night and was overjoyed! Really old world in Paso Robles. This is a must see!

Great wines, funny labels. The standard unfiltered sauvignon blanc is fantastic, especially if you decant it - or leave it to the day after. The one in amphora was disappointing - they should ferment it on the skins, like in Georgia (Europe). But the scented candles.... in a winery? Really?
