Owner description: Whalebone is a family owned and operated winery on the Vineyard Drive wine trail in Paso Robles, California. We specialize primarily in red wines, especially Cabernet Sauvignon. Our vineyard is 100% dry land farmed west side Cabernet Sauvignon - this is what we are most known for, along with our Cabernet blends. We produce BOB Wine, a Cab blend that has developed a cult following since Bob first created it as a home winemaker in the '90s. You can also find Paso Robles Zinfandel, as well as Paso Robles Rhone blends in our Tasting Barn.Whalebone also offers artisan Paso Robles olive oil and vinegar tastings, and we always have cheeses, salami, and local sheep milk ice cream for hungry tasters.

We stopped in on Super Bowl Sunday and were the only people there. The owner’s son served us and did a great job talking about the wines and the history of the Vinyard. It is a quaint and friendly place. The wine was really good and we bought a bottle. Highly recommend it!

I absolutely love Whalebone Winery, have been coming here for years and have brought many friends. I love the wine - they have great blends like the famed Bob wine but I also really love their Cabs. This is a family-owned winery, sometimes you see three generations all working in the tasting room! They're genuinely nice people! The prices are very fair. The views from the tasting room are just spectacular. I really recommend this winery. They also sell olive oils and balsamic vinegar (which you can taste), they are great as well!

We randomly found this winery on our Paso vacation. The views from the winery are terrific, and we enjoyed the wine. It has a small tasting room, but we received personal service, they sold meat (which we grilled at home and was delicious), and the olive oils for tasting and sale are fantastic. Overall, Walebone was a good time had by all.

My wife and I were traveling around Paso Robles from Boston and took a ride up Vineyard Drive and stumbled on this winery. The atmosphere was fun and the pourers were family members and were very welcoming. The wines were good, especially the Rancho Deluxe. We're old school Boston and weren't looking for any wine and cheese parties or pretentious BS. We just wanted to have a fun wine tasting and we found the perfect place. Beautiful views from the hilltop as well and I loved the old family photos hanging on the wall.
