We have been passionate about wines for many years. Having had the opportunity to travel and visit hundreds of boutique wineries around the world, our dream was to one day be the people standing behind the counter pouring our own wines instead of those doing the tasting.
That dream became a reality in 2000, when we purchased a 25 acre parcel in the rolling hills of Paso Robles, a major wine-growing region in Central California, which has been labeled, "the next Napa Valley." Situated a mere 25 miles from the Pacific Ocean, the area is influenced by tremendous fluctuations in the weather, where summer days regularly hit in the 100s and evenings dip down into the 40s, placing a great deal of stress on the vines, not to mention on those of us lucky enough to live here. The swing in temperature only intensifies the flavor of the grapes creating the perfect environment for big earthy reds. As such, our first ten acres have been planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Syrah, and Petite Sirah. We planted these grapes in four equal blocks, in high-density rows of 6x8 feet.
We simply want to produce limited quantities of the highest quality grapes available, to be handcrafted into our premium wines. Our dream of creating memorable wines is now a reality. We look forward to sharing these wines and memories with you.
DRINK THE DREAM.
Our Yelp review (“… Gelfand is a DO NOT MISS if you are winetasting in Paso…”)
Blog review from the Borderless Culture Life & Style “… If you are the lucky few who can get your hands on his wine, savor them because bottles are few and they run out fast.”
Review from Mark Storer (teacher, certified sommelier, and writer Wines and Vines Magazine, Wine Country This Week, and similar publications) – “…No, the fact is I still have five different bottles of Len and Jan’s wines and I’m excited by them. But, it’s just not enough. I suppose I could up my ante and get two cases per year, but even that wouldn’t satisfy me. I love these wines. I cannot think of better ones. I know my Central Coast pretty well and I’ve had just about everyone’s wines…”
