In the spirit of the great wine producers of the southern Rhone and the bodegas of Rioja and Priorat, blending is what Villa Creek does best. The area's finest Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre and Roussanne vineyards are just a stone's throw from the west Paso Robles winery where these blends are lovingly produced by winemaker Cris Cherry and his wife JoAnn.
The grapes of the area's most progressive vineyards, Bassetti, Denner, James Berry, Luna Matta and Rolph, currently grace the wines of Villa Creek Cellars. Per acre contracts insure that the fruit comes off the same blocks each vintage. The Cherry's own 60 acre Maha Estate on the west side of Paso Robles boasts elevations of 1500-1800 feet, calcareous soils, south facing slopes and ample water. In the spring of 2012, the Cherry's finished planting their first 3.5 acres of Grenache. In the spring of 2013 they completed planting 10 additional acres of Grenache, Mourvèdre, Carignan, Petite Sirah, and Clairette. The estate is farmed Biodynamically.
