A few years ago I did a story on Sculpterra Winery in Paso Robles. I made a slideshow to showcase its beautiful grounds, winery, sculpture, and tasting room. Gorgeous.
When we went to the Wine Festival in Paso Robles in 2009, Sculpterra Winery was one of the new (for us) wineries that we got to meet. I’d known about them for a while, and loved the few pictures I’d seen of their winery. As it turned out, I also enjoyed their wines! Their grounds and tasting room are beautiful, as you can see from the slideshow.
The then student, now winemaker of Sculpterra, Paul Frankel, sat for an interview and told us about the story of his family’s history here in the interview I did with him.
So why am I bringing this up now? Originally, part of my original pre-Deep Sleep plans for my vacation in Paso Robles had been to visit Sculpterra and “catch up” with Paul. I felt that since I wasn’t able to visit, I still wanted to showcase Sculpterra as one of the more beautiful properties in Paso Robles. The plans were to do the same type of photography that I’ve done at DAOU and VSJ. By the way, that chunky, short-haired person talking with Paul is me back then. Now I have long hair. Still chunky. Whatever. But I just started working with a great local personal trainer, so my chunkiness will be a thing of the past.
But I digress.
There are two other showcase properties that I was able to visit while there: DAOU and Villa San Juliette. Along with Sculpterra, they are among the jaw-dropping properties in Paso, not to be missed.
So stay tuned for the upcoming profiles of DAOU and Villa San Juliette. And enjoy the stunning photos!!
