Vines on the Marycrest
Central Coast AVA
Modest in size with so much passion and character
Vines on the Marycrest is a family-owned boutique winery and vineyard perched in northwestern Paso Robles on California’s famed Central Coast. Owners Victor and Jennifer Abascal established their tiny winery in 2005 with a focus on crafting Zinfandel and Rhone-style blends, capturing the vigorous spirit of the Paso Robles appellation.
The couple runs the winery operation completely on their own and annually produces somewhere between 1,400 and 1,500 cases, making Vines on the Marycrest one of the smallest wineries in the region.
An engineer by trade, Victor Abascal was first bit by the wine bug in 2000 when he decided to experiment with home winemaking in his free time. The experience was so exhilarating that he started growing grapes in southern California, just outside of Los Angeles, to teach himself the do’s and don’ts of farming and winemaking. This location where he planted the grapes, the Marycrest Manor in Culver City, is where the name Vines on the Marycrest would stem from.
When he and Jennifer stumbled upon Paso Robles a few years later, they immediately fell in love with the possibilities and found a 26-acre piece of land with their name on it.
Today Vines on the Marycrest has established itself as an award-winning winery, modest in size and with so much passion and character, that the story and family immediately capture your heart. Enjoy!
