Salvestrin and Calcareous Wines!


Nestled in famous Napa Valley, the Salvestrin family has been growing grapes on their historic St. Helena vineyard since 1932. Three generations of the Salvestrin Family have meticulously and sustainably farmed this 26 acre vineyard for 81 harvests. Being sensitive to the environment and the surrounding community by following organic guidelines, they consistently create handcrafted wines that are fruit forward, elegant, balanced and memorably world class.


Father and daughter Lloyd Messer and Dana Brown realized their dream of finding a place to express their passion for wine in 2000, when they established Calcareous Vineyards on one of the highest limestone plateaus on Paso Robles’ west side. Both Lloyd and Dana, experienced wine distributors in their native Iowa, recognized that the west side of Paso Robles had potential to produce world class wines. Their acquisition of 342 acres atop solid calcareous rock reaching 1,800 feet above sea level confirmed their dedication to producing the highest quality, terroir driven wines possible.  It is a labor of love to cultivate fruit on this challenging land, but the reward is immediately apparent when tasting the wines.

Orin Swift Wines

The history of Orin Swift Cellars dates back to 1995 when on a lark, David Swift Phinney took a friend up on an offer and went to Florence, Italy to spend a semester “studying”. During that time, he was introduced to wine, how it was made, and got hooked. A few more years of university led to graduation and eventually a job at Robert Mondavi Winery in 1997 as a temporary harvest worker. Deciding that if he was going to work this hard, it would eventually have to be for himself, so in 1998 he founded Orin Swift Cellars; Orin is his father’s middle name and Swift is his mother’s maiden name. With two tons of zinfandel and not much else, he spent the next decade making wine for others as well as himself and grew the company into a multinational brand that now includes 300 acres of vineyards in the Southwest of France. This international ambition has led to projects in Spain, Italy, Corsica, Argentina and other locations around the globe.

Darms Lane and Corte Riva Wines!

Darms Lane is a family owned and operated winery committed to delivering small production, elegant wines from Napa Valley. It was established in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley in 1983 as a Chardonnay estate. In 2002 the 14 acres of original Chardonnay vines were replaced by the Bordeaux varietals of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. In 2005, the first estate grown Darms Lane Cabernet Sauvignon was produced. Today, Darms Lane produces around 500 cases of Cabernet Sauvignon, and 400 cases of Chardonnay every year.


Cortez and Rivera immigrated from the Philippines in 1978, where their friendship began in the little town of Calistoga, the heart of the Napa Valley. Their knowledge base of wine and vineyards started by working in a vineyard tending to the grapes. They collectively gained experience from Clos Pegase, and Pride Mountain Vineyards under the tutelage of winemaker Bob Foley. Fast forward several decades of intense learning and hard work...today you can enjoy the fruit of their labor from a remarkable 2007 vintage, a banner year for Corte Riva in Napa Valley.

Wet is ok....If it's pouring outside we can cozy up inside our tasting room!

No More Wine Tastings until 2015...

Still come by on Friday Nights and enjoy Happy Hour from 4-8pm on our heated patio overlooking the lake!
