Kula Vineyards is a small, family-owned vineyard and winery located in Templeton, California on California's famed Central Coast. We are located in the El Pomar District of the Paso Robles AVA.
We started as grape growers, selling our Syrah to some of Paso Robles' most well-known wineries. We became a winery so we could share our vision of small-production, single vineyard, single varietal wines that fully express the region and vineyard of their origin.
We live on the vineyard, which helps us maintain our connection with the grape vines. Every day they speak to us, letting us know what they need to grow and thrive. Later, when it comes time to harvest, we hand-pick and then hand-sort the grapes for all of our wines, using only the best fruit.
There's always lots going on at our vineyard, farm and tasting room. While last year was a challenging year for everyone, see some of the things that were special to us in 2020.
Kula means "Gold" in the Hawaiian language. From the golden hills that surround us to the Golden Retrievers welcoming you to the property, we are Kula Vineyards!
