  • Description


    I live on a 10 acre property in the Paso Robles, California, American Viticulture Area. There are over 200 wineries within an hours drive. Some wineries are only minutes away from my place. Downtown Paso Robles is a quaint town, built surrounding a park, where there are many nice restaurants, shops, and wine tasting rooms. The coastal towns of Cambria, Cayucos, Avila Beach, and the famous Hearst Castle, are less than an hour away by car.
    My 10 acre property consists of a nice residence, a large modern barn, and a two acre hobby vineyard planted with Malbec and Zinfandel vines. I have owned and maintained this property for 7 years. Keeping this property in good condition requires constant care. I've tried to minimize maintenance by replacing lawns with rock or artificial turf - saving water and labor. The vineyard requires much attention, such as weed control, pest control, irrigating and repair of irrigation components. Also, applying and removing bird netting, and of course, the harvesting of the grapes in the Fall.

    Because 2 acres of grapes is not a sufficient amount to generate a profit, I operate as a hobby. I receive a percentage of wine back from the wine makers when it is bottled. I cannot legally sell the wine. I use it for personal consumption, gifts, and/or donations to charity.

    About me. I am a single man and I live here with my timid cat, Tiki. I am a Private Pilot and Aircraft owner. If you have an interest in aviation, we could perhaps go flying. I occasionally host dinner parties with neighbors, and sometimes we play music. I play the resonator guitar and Lap steel guitar.

    This is a rural lifestyle. Away from the hustle and bustle of city life. This is wine country. Growing grapes and making wine dominate the area. Having the coast nearby is a different world altogether. This is some of the best that California has to offer. I say "some" because California is much more. California has it all. This area offers many activities such as biking, hiking, beachcombing, surfing, wine tasting, dining out, or just relaxing and watching the sunset.

    I have two bedrooms available which have a private access door to the outside. I also have a second residence 15 minutes away which could also serve as accommodations. Rooms are nice and clean with private bath.

    I will keep a well stocked refrigerator for my workaway guests. We may prepare main meals together, dine out occasionally, or attend a local neighborhood dinner party. I'll make sure the workaway guests have a chance to experience some of our local cuisine.
