We have visited this Winery so many times over the past years I can't remember how many. It is always the same. Cordial greetings by helpful employees. Kathlene is the daughter of the owners and very knowledgeable of their products. We have always enjoyed our time there, sitting by the lake, walking the grounds and admiring the art work of Gary McKnight. My wife is partial to the White on White wine but I prefer the older, well aged Reds. We also buy their Olive Oils made from the trees that line the driveway. This a different winery, very casual and laid back, nothing stuffy and lots of flexibility. If you want to feel really good on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon this is the place t o visit.

We stopped by this winery for the first time. If you remember the TV shows Burke's Law and Land of the Giants you will especially appreciate stopping here and meeting the star of these shows, Gary Conway. Sustainably produced very good wine. A nice place to stop near some of the more corporate wineries.

This is a fabulous winery and tasting room. The unique volcanic soil yields great tasting wine and the place is operated by knowledgeable, friendly people. WELL worth an afternoon stop to taste wine that is out of this world!

This is the second year we visited this Winery. The owners are so down to earth and friendly. We had a delightful lunch. Last year we were able to tour his art gallery which is awesome. Rain this year prevented this. The grounds are beautiful.

Unfortunately since my last 5 star review of Carmody McKnight the vineyard seems to have lost its way. The wines were not good, they seem to have lost their taste buds or are in denial. We have cancelled our club membership which took some doing as rarely will they answer the phone or return emails. While it is a beautiful drive to their facility fortunately there are many other vineyards in the area. We will try them again next year and update if positive.

We LOVED this little winery. A super pourer at another place we visited (Mark) recommended the place to us. It's right next to Justin, but the wines are completely different. The word "hand-crafted" comes to mind. These wines are made with passion and care.

Our pourer (who was awesome and I apologize for forgetting his name) regaled us with stories about the winery and the wines. We loved the beer bread he served and enjoyed visiting with Gary when he came in from his swim in the pond. We'll definitely be back and make sure to bring a picnic lunch next time. The place is beautiful and the wines very special!

I would put this on any must-stop list for Paso Robles wineries. One of the best CA cabs we've ever had (a 2005) was from here. Most of their reds will cellar and develop very well over several years.

And don't miss out on some of their great oils and balsamics.

This is a small, low-key winery with beautiful, rustic grounds. One of the best wineries in CA, Napa included.

Family owned, low keyed, beautiful artwork painted by the owner and film actor, Gary Conway. Dramatic contrast to Justin up to road. Kelly and Kathleen, running the place on a quiet Monday, are warm and friendly. Watch your step for all the baby frogs hopping around😀

I had purchased the "Art of the Vineyard" online, written by vineyard Carmody-Mcknight owner Gary Conway. An unexpected trip ended up taking me to Santa Barbara and Paso Robles and I was lucky enough to be able to meet Gary in person and not only have him sign the book but he spent a considerable time with me and my "wine tasting" partner discussing his passion for the land and the wine...and enjoyed the stores that enhanced those written in the book. The scenery is wonderful...the servers and owner and his daughter Kathleen...gracious and fun to engage with...made for a wonderful afternoon...and the drive out from Paso Robles was sunny, mild and enjoyable on a January day!

If you want to taste great magical Bordeaux style wines u must go to Carmody-Mcknight. The owner Gary Conway is sooo passionate about his Terroir sits on three ancient volcanoes and if you want to be completely entranced by this former successful TV and movie star well ya gotta go to: Carmody-Mcknight. We are club members here and the entire staff will welcome you with open arms. The landscape is also incomparable. 5 stars from this guy and gal. Oh and I almost forgot about Tucker the vineyard Standard Poodle.. This place is Xanadu.. Gary is also an extremely gifted painter/artist his art is for sale on site and his wife is a former Miss America, Mariam McKnight.
