A brief history
Steinbeck Vineyards & Winery is a boutique family owned and operated winery in the heart of California's Central Coast, Paso Robles. Our family has been farming here for seven-generations, since 1884. Our ancestors were pioneers in many aspects of farming in Paso Robles, including wine grapes and wine in the year 1900. Our family continues that fine, pioneering tradition through our elegant wines.
Established in 1982, Steinbeck Vineyards is the culmination of Howie Steinbeck's vision for his family's property. With three generations of Paso Robles' farming experience behind him, Howie partnered with Gary Eberle and planted one parcel of Cabernet Sauvignon and one of Chardonnay along the driveway to the family ranch house. Since that first planting in the 1980s, the vineyard has expanded to fill the 500 acre property.
