Windward Vineyard

"Exclusively Pinot Noir" is the hallmark of Windward Vineyard. Owners/operators Marc Goldberg and Maggie D'Ambrosia specialize in 100% Estate-grown and produced Burgundian-style, handcrafted Pinot Noir.

Named for the cool Pacific Ocean winds that breeze through the Templeton Gap in the Santa Lucia Mountain Chain, on the Westside of Paso Robles, Windward Vineyard Pinot Noir is testimony to the unique microclimate and terroir of the area.

Come in and visit us at 1380 Live Oak Rd in Paso Robles for a vertical tasting of 4 vintages of our Estate Pinot Noir. Enjoy a glass of your favorite outside in our peacful Lath House while overlooking the vineyard and sampling Artisan cheeses, locally produced salami & gourmet tapenades.


2010 Estate Monopole Pinot Noir
This was an especially cool vintage and we harvested about 1.5 Tons/Acre. The result is an expressive and extracted minerality that balances the delicate nature of the Pinot Noir fruit in a beautiful dance on the palate that Windward Vineyard has provided over the past 21 years. Very open and drinkable for so young a wine, it also promises to age gently over an extended period of time. From the delicate wild strawberry nose to the sophisticated and elongated finish it is a vintage that proudly displays its Burgundian influence and uniqueness for a “New World” Pinot Noir.
