This winery complex is situated in the popular wine country of Paso Robles, California with the main complex sited on the highest elevation of the vineyard and the main orientation of the wine tasting spaces facing almost all directions of this and adjacent vineyards.  The visitors can enjoy the sunset while tasting and testing wine products in the middle of this vineyard. 

This winery/vineyard is also located not far from the original San Miguel Mission Church.  The Mission San Miguel Arc-angel Church was established on July 25, 1797 and remains in use as a parish Church today and still maintains the original layout of building.  The mission Church was registered on the National Register of Historic Places in 1971 and was named to a National Historic Landmark in 2006.

The brick arches and rough finish stucco of the Church inspire the arches of windows with brick and stucco building materials.  In addition, gable and hip roof forms are from Spanish architecture of the area. 

This complex is one of the original winery complexes and since then there have been more winery complexes built next, around and adjacent to this vineyard complex.
