Alma Sol Winery - PLUS!

Two critical elements needed to craft exceptional wines, soul & sun

Alma Sol Winery is a micro-boutique winery owned and operated by the husband and wife team of John Shaw and Lisa Cuevas Shaw. Nestled in the beautiful Paso Robles appellation of California’s Central Coast, Alma Sol sources premium fruit from top vineyard sites and focuses on crafting tiny lots of exceptional Bordeaux-style wines, both single varietals and special blends. John and Lisa Shaw met while working together in academic publishing at the same family-owned, international publishing company, SAGE. They began making trips to Lisa’s family’s vineyard in Paso Robles and found the region to be quite appealing. The Shaws became friends with many of Paso Robles’ winemakers and winery owners, and over time, learned much about the area and the industry. It wasn’t long before that lifestyle was really calling to them and the idea of Alma Sol Winery came about.

In 2011, John and Lisa officially established Alma Sol Winery, which brings together two critical elements needed to craft exceptional wines – soul and sun. While much of Paso Robles is known for its Rhône-style varietals, the Shaws decided to focus on Bordeaux wines and prove that great Cabernet Sauvignons and exquisite Cabernet blends could be made in this region. With the help of consulting winemakers, John and Lisa made their first commercial vintage and it was awarded an impressive 90 Points by Wine Enthusiast magazine. Not a bad start!

Today, John and Lisa continue to run the entire Alma Sol operation and spend much of their time selecting premium fruit sources outside of Lisa’s family vineyard, Cuevas Vineyard. While there is a special focus on Paso Robles, the Shaws have also found top vineyard sites in Napa Valley and Santa Maria from which to source from as well. The goal at Alma Sol is to continue growing, while sharing their small-lot, award winning wines with friends, family, and the local community. We hope you enjoy this special wine, from a great up-and-coming producer.
