The Personal Touch at Eberle
When you walk into Eberle’s tasting room, you’ll find yourself noticing the little things that make the area inviting. The merchandise, such as Cayucos Hot Sauce, displayed on the shelves, the view from the balcony overlooking the estate vineyard, and a large picture behind the wine bar of Gary Eberle, the winery’s owner, in his Penn State football gear. He played for the team in the 1960s.
And don’t forget to say hi to the Standard Poodles you will see at the winery. You might encounter Barbera, the new puppy, exploring with Sangiovese, their 3-year-old poodle. Both love to meet guests and play whenever they get a chance.
Winter at the Vineyard
As the weather gets colder, things at the vineyard are ramping up. The vines are trimmed to get ready for spring growth, new releases are offered in the tasting room, and wine competitions are entered.

Make a Trip to Eberle Special
There are many ways to enjoy a visit to Eberle. You can sip Eberle’s wines while sitting on the deck overlooking the vineyard with a back drop of the Santa Lucia Mountains. Afterwards, you can play bocce ball or cornhole. Some weekends, there are also food trucks selling tacos. Other times, you’ll find Gary and Marcy at the wood fired pizza oven requesting donations for the Children’s Museum and offering pizza by the slice. Other times of the year, they do the same thing by offering barbeque tri-tip, duck sausage and ribs to their guests. Last year, the donations from their cooking resulted in $3300 for the Paso Robles Children’s Museum.
