The Craig Stoller Collection is comprised of three unique wine brands, Sextant, Windemere, and Paris Valley Road, primarily estate grown and carefully sourced from some of the Central Coast’s best vineyards. Together, the Craig Stoller Collection represents the terroir and breathtaking beauty of the Central Coast.
Sextant Wines are dedicated to expanding horizons by pairing the Central Coast’s unmatchable terroir with old world varietal selections, with tasting rooms located in both Paso Robles and the Edna Valley.
Paris Valley Road showcases the rich, delicate flavors and intensely aromatic wines dedicated to showcasing the winegrowing potential that California’s Central Coast has to offer.
Historic Estate Vineyard in the Heart of Old Edna Windemere is estate grown pinot noir, chardonnay, and sparkling wine made in the traditional méthode champenoise from our MacGregor Vineyard, the oldest vineyard of the Edna Valley.
Our roots, both literal and figurative, are in Sunridge Nurseries, founded in 1977 by Glen Stoller and dedicated to growing the finest table and wine grape stock imported from France, Portugal, and Spain. It was Sunridge Nurseries that brought proprietor Craig Stoller, third generation vine grower, to Paso Robles.
Looking to explore the Central Coast’s vine growing potential, the Stoller family partnered with Dana Merrill of Mesa Vineyard to plant the Chalk Knoll Vineyard in San Ardo, California in 1995. Located just 35 miles from the Pacific Ocean, Chalk Knoll is located on a stretch of dirt road that meanders along the scenic foothills of the southern Monterey Coast.
With the original goal of producing more cuttings for the nursery, Craig planted a single vineyard test plot of ENTAV selections in 2001. That was to be the very first block of our estate vineyard, which produced our very first vintage of Sextant Wines. Today the RBZ Vineyard is planted to over two dozen varietals across 97 acres, focusing on Bordeaux, Rhône & Zinfandel varietals.
Craig and Nancy purchased Windemere Wines from proprietress Cathy MacGregor in 2006, whose father originally planted the vineyard in 1974 to Pinot Noir on its own rootstock and later, Chardonnay. Since then, we’ve maintained our focus on this established and storied vineyard and making notable Burgundian wines, each a true testament to the land from which it came.
After opening the doors to our first tasting room in the town of San Luis Obispo in 2007, we relocated to the picturesque and historic Old Edna, a townsite established in 1908 in the heart of the Edna Valley, where we continue taste both Sextant and Windemere wines from the historic general store, still featuring its original floors, walls, and front door.
As we continued to grow on the Central Coast, we opened a state-of-the-art winery and production facility in westside Paso Robles. Entering through an archway made of limestone sourced from the property itself, we invite you to experience our Estate Winery and Hospitality Center via a small or group tasting, as a member in our VIP room, or with a guided tour.
