Wine Tasting
There is something for everyone at Pear Valley Estate Wine
 Pear Valley’s first vines were planted in 1999 on a 20-acre vineyard located on the westside of Paso Robles. The property was originally a pear orchard and was the inspiration for the Pear Valley name.
The venture grew to include additional acreage including the Union Road vineyard where the winery and tasting room are locat- ed. The winery crafts unique wines exclusively made using grapes from the estate, now comprising almost 100 sustainably farmed acres grow- ing 28 different grape varietals. With two estate vineyards located on the westside and one on the eastside, the winery is able to take advantage of the diverse growing conditions to produce a wide range of wines.
