  • Panaro Brothers Winery
    The Panaro family, now in its fifth generation of winemaking, draws on a rich Italian-American history as they transform grapes into single-varietal and blended wines using traditional methods. The grapes come from ​vineyards in Paso Robles, Los Alamos, Santa Ynez, and elsewhere along California’s central coast, and they impart deep flavors into wines such as the oak-aged dolcetto or the mildly sweet grenache blanc. Visitors can sample these varietals and others in the Panaro's urban tasting room.

  • Cantara Cellars
    Mike and Chris Brown's story of Cantara Cellars starts as many success stories do: with a humble beginning. Back in 2002, the husband and wife team started off with just 250 pounds of chardonnay grapes that had been hand-picked from Mike's parents' vineyard in Lodi, which eventually transformed into their first 18 gallons of wine. And like most creative endeavors, the winemaking was a labor of love, something the couple doted upon, developed, and refined over the coming years. In 2007, once they had accumulated a huge amount of knowledge—and inventory of wine—the tasting room opened to the public, where visitors could relax, snack on small plates, and enjoy vinos by the ounce, full glass, or bottle. These days, Cantara works with more than 50 tons of harvested grapes each fall, and crafts more than 10 varietals throughout the year.
