“Since 1972 we have been taking great care and pride in the quality of our fruit and ultimately the wines we are producing.”
- Daniel Sinton
A fifth generation rancher and second generation vintner, Daniel grew up learning to be a steward of the Avenales Ranch and Shell Creek Vineyards that have been in his family since 1875. The family of Avenales Ranch strongly believes that a great glass of wine is created in the vineyard and then stewarded in the winemaking process.
Where the Wine is Made:
The only winery in the Paso Robles Highlands District, Avenales Ranch, is a small winery that uses 100% estate fruit from our historic Shell Creek Vineyards. Planted in 1972, one of the first vineyards in San Luis Obispo County, they have a rich history in viticulture and producing high quality grapes and wines. Organically and sustainably farmed fruit from 50+ year old vines is the backbone of their wine program and are excited to offer Old Vine Petite Sirah, Old Vine Chenin Blanc, Silver Buckle Cabernet and a Rose’ of Valdiguie.
