A brief history

Welcome to the Barton Family Estate! The Estate is home to Barton Family Wines, Grey Wolf Cellars, Grain + Vine Craft Distillery and Barton's Kitchen. Since 1994, the Estate has been family owned and operated.

We are a boutique, farmhouse chic winery nestled under ancient live oak trees with views of our surrounding estate vineyard. Our award-winning wines are a testament to the Paso Robles region. There is something for everyone to enjoy from crisp whites to fun orange wine and an array of unique reds.

Barton's Kitchen is a farm-to-table style restaurant that uses local, seasonal produce. Grain + Vine offers craft cocktails and tasting flights of our five spirits including Vodka, Gin, Rum, Bourbon and Rye. With each reservation, we can accommodate wine, spirits and food all at one table.

We look forward to meeting you and hope that we can help you create memories to last a lifetime. Cheers!

Meet The Team

  • Brad Ely

    Brad was born and raised on the Central Coast. He first developed an interest in winemaking while working in fine dining. After graduating from Cal Poly with a degree in Business and Entrepreneurship, he decided to forgo the suit and tie for jeans and work boots and accepted a harvest internship at Saucelito Canyon in San Luis Obispo.

    After 2 years of full-time cellar work, his thirst for knowledge and experience led him all over the world, with positions at
    Owen Roe, in the Yakima Valley of Washington; Two Hands Wines, in the Barossa Valley of South Australia; Vin Pro, in Central Otago, New Zealand; and Domaine la Barroche, Upon returning to California, he served as the cellar master at Tablas Creek in Paso Robles for three years.

    A wild hair led him to explore the wines of Monterey County working for Folktale Winery and Vineyards, before coming back home for good as the winemaker for Barton Family Wines and Grey Wolf Cellars. Brad has a deep passion for winemaking, focusing on wines of freshness and balance, that truly show a sense of place.

    When not at the winery, Brad can be found surfing our local beaches, camping and racing motorcycles.
