“Destiny is not a matter of chance; it is a matter of choice; it is not a thing to be waited for; it is a thing to be achieved.”
William Jennings Bryan
Optio comes from the latin word for “choice”. At Optio Vineyards we feel that just as we make choices in life, so too, we make choices in the vineyard and in the winemaking process. Optio Vineyards is a micro-boutique wine label located in Paso Robles, California. Established in 2014, Optio Vineyards mission is to choose the best grapes from the best vineyards, in order to create the best wines in the region. Specializing in Spanish and Rhone blends, Optio Vineyards works meticulously with winemaker Aaron Jackson to craft the most balanced wines in Paso Robles. Our estate vineyard named LaMar Vineyard, sits on a hilltop at 1,100 foot elevation, nestled at the tail end of the Templeton Gap in the newly designated Geneseo AVA. We make very small lots of wine each year, which are available via mailing list , as well as at select restaurants in Paso Robles. Please feel free to join our mailing list without any obligations. Or, join our new Club Optio, to be guaranteed wines at each release. We release our wine in the Spring and the Fall of each year. Thanks for visiting.
