A brief history

Cayucos Cellars is truly the quintessential small family winery. Owned and operated solely by our small family of five, we have no employees or minions to rely upon but ourselves. Each of us may be found in the tasting room from time to time, pouring wine, interacting with those from far and wide, and always enjoying a good chat.

​All of the wines produced by Cayucos Cellars are fermented using only the inherent abilities of wild yeast, and are aged for three to six years in neutral oak barrels before bottling. With a production of between five hundred and eight hundred cases of premium wine annually, we are able to indulge an incredible attention to detail in each and every bottle. Our winery, located in an old dairy barn in the coastal hills above Cayucos, hides on a working ranch, thus we felt it prudent to place the tasting room in town to prevent anyone being flattened by a tractor.

The wind whips and whistles through the swaying lodgepole pine trees scattered along the rugged landscape, coals still smolder red in the fire pit ready for another log, ash scatters and sparks fly. Rich coffee pulled from the saddle pack perks up my weary senses, giving a warmth to my body and mind before the first sip touches my lips. Hands stained by tart raspberries collected meticulously out of the wild unruly brambles that grow along the fresh cool spring. The earthy bright scent lingers in the cool Pacific Northwest air. Fresh elk backstrap pounded and ready to grill, my mouth waters in anticipation as the Szechwan peppercorns crack and scatter over the meat. I look about for the sack of matsutake foraged in the early morning mist, their spicy aromatic odor tingling my nose as I open the bag and set about achieving the meal I have labored toward since my eyes squinted open at the break of day.
