|Pasos Vineyards Winemaker
|Winemaker Antonio Pasos was born in Monterey California and soon moved to the
Madera valley to work in the family vineyards. He developed a deep passion for the
grape, wine and wine making. Dreams of owning his own winery and producing his own
handcrafted wines where he could focus on the art of wine making followed. He
graduated from California State College Fresno and went to work for E&J Gallo, Fenestra
Winery and others. In early 2004 he moved to the Lodi Appellation to start his name sake
winery Pasos Vineyards. There, working with Mediterranean varietals that do well in the
San Joaquin Valley he has built the premier boutique winery of the Lodi Appellation.
Antonio buys and grows only the best grapes and uses new French, Hungarian and
American oak barrels for his small lot production. His motto is simply:
"Always put quality first."
