De Paola Vineyards began in 1998 as a small 2 and half-acre family vineyard of fine Zinfandel grapes nestled in a fertile valley amidst the rolling foothills of Arroyo Grande. Across the country road a small 4 acre family vineyard of Zinfandel and Petite Sirah was also being planted by the Lukens family. With a shared passion for drinking wine and hard work, the goal of growing the finest grapes was the natural result. Cool Pacific breezes and a temperate climate create the perfect growth environment for our estate Zinfandel and Petite Sirah grapes. Today De Paola Vineyard yields a modest 600 cases of some of the finest, and rarest, Zinfandel and Petite Sirah found on the Central Coast.
