Eberle Winery

Story

Driving Force Behind the Wine Industry in Paso Robles

Gary Eberle is one of the pioneers of the wine industry in Paso Robles. He was part of a small group of early winemakers that lead the charge to get Paso Robles certified as an appellation, while at the same time establishing his own winery. Gary was fascinated by Syrah, which was not yet planted in California. Based on the seedlings of California State University, Davis owned that had been grown in Chapoutier, Gary began planting clonal lines of Syrah in the field of 20 acres. The wine released in 1978 was the very first 100% Syrah in the United States. Wineries from all around became aware and gradually his new attempt, as a premium wine-producing area of the Rhone-based blend, Paso Robles has established its position today.
"For me, making wine is about elegance. I pay attention to detail. As I like to say, my science background gets me through harvest, but it's my artistic side that helps me in blending and creating beautiful wines." - Ben Mayo, which is also the winemaker. We regard wines as a work in progress never-ending winemaking.
