Peachy Canyon Winery
Open daily 10am-5:30pm
The Peachy Canyon "Old School House" tasting room, located in the heart of Paso Robles' wine country on Highway 46 West, remains a landmark attraction. Formerly the site of the Old Bethel School House (circa 1886), the property offers a quaint tasting area and fine gift shop, an old-fashioned gazebo, and a park-like visitors' picnic area bordered by rolling vineyards and native oak trees.
Peachy Canyon is a family owned and operated winery in beautiful Paso Robles on California’s Central Coast, dedicated to making excellent wines sustainably. Founded by Doug and Nancy Beckett in 1988, Peachy Canyon has long been praised as a producer of award winning California wines that exemplify respect for terroir and dedicated winemaking.
In addition to sourcing top quality fruit from a number of growers in the area, the Becketts manage 100 acres of their own vineyards, which are pruned, maintained, harvested and sorted by hand. This labor-intensive process results in high quality control, leading to outstanding wines which reflect the terroir of Paso Robles’ microclimates.
At Peachy Canyon, the vineyard team grows cover crops in between their vine rows to help prevent erosion during the winter months. They also compost all of the byproducts from the winery and reintroduce them to their soils every other year. Throughout the growing season, each vineyard block is strategically watered to maximize the quality of the fruit while minimizing water waste and runoff. Rather than spray pesticides, they introduce beneficial insects to the vineyard, such as ladybugs, lacewings and praying mantis, which feast upon enemy pests.
A visit to the beautiful, newly renovated Peachy Canyon tasting room on Highway 46 West will treat you to a number of elite Bordeaux-style blends alongside award winning red Zinfandels and other unique and storied varietals, including: Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Malbec, Viognier and Petite Sirah, among others. Visit Peachy Canyon and grab a glass of the Chardonnay to settle beneath the idyllic gazebo, or pack a picnic and sit amongst the undulating vineyards and canopy of ancient oaks. Join Peachy Canyon Winery for Summertime Saturdays through October with live music and a food truck on site form 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Peachy Canyon is a winery not to be missed!
