For decades quarter horses, cattle and cowboys roamed the grassy hills of the historic Kentucky Ranch. Today we are full of casual charm, reminiscent of California past and present. Since 2004 Thacher Winery with the grasshopper label, has been hand crafting wines from superb vineyards found on the Westside of Paso Robles and in Southern Monterey County. Our boutique production of Rhone blends and Zinfandels demonstrate local subtleties and true westside terroir.
The award winning winery and tasting room are situated next to a 90 year old barn with spectacular and ever changing vistas of vineyards, hay fields and oak trees. The estate Zinfandel and Petite Syrah vineyard was planted in spring of 2007. Thacher Winery and vineyards celebrate everything we love about Paso Robles and are sure you will too.
With such small production and distribution the best place to find us is in the tasting room and through the wine club. We’d love to share our wines with you and show you around. Artisanal cheeses and gourmet nibbles are also available to enjoy with some Thacher wine and make for a great picnic here at the ranch. Take a walk to the vineyard or share some of your lunch with the goats. We love it here and are sure you will too. Come taste with us, we are pouring!
