This land is grand: This summer, ONX Estate Winery in Paso Robles acquired Kiler Creek Vineyard located in the Willow Creek AVA of Paso Robles. The 50-acre property is currently planted with five varieties including syrah, grenache, mourvedre, tempranillo, and viognier, and it will surely bolster the winery's already alluring lineup of eclectic and unruly wines (for more about ONX, go to onxwines.com.) ... Led by Katie Jackson and Julia Jackson of the Jackson Family, Cambria Winery has launched an estate-inspired wine series that includes Fog Tide Chardonnay, West Point Chardonnay, Element Pinot Noir, and Mesa Terrace Pinot Noir, all of which were created and named to pay homage to the land on which the grapes are grown. This series of geographically driven wines focuses specifically on different microsites throughout Cambria's estate vineyard in Santa Maria Valley in northern Santa Barbara County (for more information, go to cambriawines.com).
