Barrel Select Wines

By Assistant Winemaker, Anthony Gallegos May is an exciting time for us at Le Vigne Winery as we have just bottled our Barrel Select Viognier and Chardonnay! A lot of work goes on behind the scenes with these wines from the moment the grapes are picked to the moment they go into the bottle. Our…

When wine is discussed the topics that come up are where are the vineyards, who is the winemaker, what is the microclimate, or what is the meaning of the picture on the bottle. We never really take about the cellar and what it takes to get the grapes from harvest to the bottle, and your…

Learn What Your Name Means Day

What’s in a name? that which we call a roseBy any other name would smell as sweet. From Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare I quite enjoy fun and obscure holidays. While my favorite is Pi Day, March also brings another interesting one: March 5th, Learn What Your Name Means Day. There is often a…

Harvest Review and Nouveau

Here at Le Vigne, we are getting bundled up and cozy for the winter and the wines and vines are no exception. With the completion of harvest, the vines are settling into dormancy after a bountiful 2021 vintage. The wines from this vintage are each finished with primary fermentation. Most are getting through malolactic fermentation…

Family Holiday Traditions

Howdy folks, I was asked to write a small note about my family holiday traditions that I enjoyed growing up with. But before I begin, I want to thank everyone who made it out to our Le Vigne Winery Thanksgiving dinner this past Saturday. It was such a happy and enjoyable event. Good people, great…

Fall in Love with our Tasting Room Staff

Fall has adorned the Central Coast and as I drive around town, I can’t help but see the leaves changing. It is a beautiful time of year. While there is a chill in the air both at night and in the morning, the sun shines brightly during the day. It is a perfect time of…

“Mangia & Bevi by Le Vigne” Eat and Drink!

Sorpresa! Surprise! This summer, we are opening a new tasting room in Los Angeles. We are please do announce that the Filippini Family are executing their latest vision: Mangia & Bevi by Le Vigne – a place to eat, drink, and have a good time, without the long (but undeniably beautiful) drive to Paso Robles. Just south of LA’s Arts District, they have chosen a beautiful red brick building with one large tasting room and two private tasting rooms amongst…

The Most Complex of Simple Questions

In the tasting room, one of the most common questions asked to the attendants is “Which wine is your favorite?” If you are the questioner, you many notice that the recipient of this question pauses, looks up in a sort of “thinking” gesture and possibly lets out a quick “hmmmm”.

Cheese and Charcuterie Gone Board

Being the resident curd nerd at Le Vigne Winery, my duty is to bring the cheese! Following the latest cheese and charcuterie trends (yes, that is a thing), I wanted to create a board that was of individual portions, colorful and delicious.

These are a few of the ways caterers, food stylists and cheese mongers are adapting in the cheese market during the current pandemic, to serve at events like weddings, birthdays and showers, to name a few.
