Esteemed wine critic Robert M. Parker, Jr., believes the Paso Robles area of the Central Coast shows some of the greatest potential in all of California. In fact a Paso Robles Syrah Blend wine was ranked the No#1 wine of the world in 2010 by Wine Spectator. Paso Robles, sometimes called " Napa South", is known for its favorable microclimates and limestone rich soils. This, combined with warm days and cool nights, fosters the best out of the grapes resulting in exceptional depth of flavors and a long finish to the wine. Our Four Sisters Ranch is a family affair named after our four daughters, Sacheen, Elan, Toccara, and Sierra, who each contribute uniquely to our success. As medical doctors Michael and Serena are excited about the cardiovascular health benefits of our wine.

We visited Pear Valley Vineyards
The genesis of the wine story for Pear Valley began in the late 60's when owner Tom Maas was stationed on an army base in Germany...in the midst of a vineyard. Here he learned to love both wine and the vineyard.
At Pear Valley all of our wine is made from 100% estate grown fruit.
Our three Paso Robles Vineyards known as Pear Valley, Mission Almond and Union Road are planted in premium fruit of French, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese descent. Our philosophy is to grow the best fruit possible and then interfere as little as possible.
Our goal is to create unique vintages that reflect vibrant fruit nourished by ancient soils under ideal climate conditions while leaving little impact on the environment.
Our current offering includes Chardonnay (one that was aged in oak and another in stainless steel), Sauvignon Blanc, Muscat, Orange Muscat, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Zinfandel and our signature blend named "Distraction".
As the newer plantings in the vineyard mature, additional wines will be added to the line-up.
