Winery of the Month

March 2019

Sextant Wines

We are proud to be partnering with Sextant Wines during the month of March. Everyday at our Guest Wine Tasting Reception, we will be featuring tastes of their amazing varietals. Each Friday during this time, we will feature their winemaker or winery representative at our Guest Reception. At our restaurant, be sure to order a glass of one of their delicious wines to pair with our local farm to table cuisine. 

Proprietors Nancy and Craig Stoller have a deep-rooted history in the wine industry. Craig’s father, Glen founded Sunridge Nurseries and grew vines with origins from France, Portugal, and Spain. In 2002, Craig and Nancy planted a certified increase block in Templeton to produce cuttings for the nursery. Two years later they began to utilize the grapes rather than letting the fruit drop on the ground, which is customary for most nursery operations.

In the fall of 2007, Sextant opened the doors to their first tasting room in San Luis Obispo. Ever growing, in the winter of 2009, Sextant moved its tasting room to the historic town site of Old Edna located in the heart of the Edna Valley. In addition, Sextant secured its own production facility in Paso Robles. In the beginning of 2011, they had the opportunity to own a beautiful piece of property on the much-desired 46 West in Paso Robles. They decided this was where they would build their Estate Winery and Hospitality Center. The Stollers’ story from vines to wines has come full-circle as they have combined their passion for fine wine, gourmet cuisine, and love of the ocean in creating Sextant Wines.
