Whalebone Vineyard - One of the Best Wineries in Paso Robles

It’s Not Luck. It’s the Soil.

Whalebone Vineyard is the Robert and Janalyn Simpson family business located in Adelaide California, in the Santa Lucia Mountain Range west of Paso Robles. Established in 1989, on our 128 acres we raise Angus cattle, grow Cabernet Sauvignon grapes in our renowned Whalebone Vineyard, and produce and sell wine in our Whalebone Tasting Barn. Our world class terroir, consisting of a perfect coastal climate, limestone and calcareous soils laden with fossilized seashells, and rocky south facing hillsides, lends itself to producing great wine. Actual whalebones were unearthed when planting our vines – thus our name. You’ll love our Cabernet Sauvignons, our Cab blend and cult favorite BOB WINE, Zinfandel, and Rosé and Red Rhone blends.
