Read Our Story

Pianetta Winery and Vineyard is located 15 miles north of Paso Robles, tucked into the hills of Indian Valley, where the vines enjoy daily sunshine and easy afternoon breezes. Planted in 1997 by John Pianetta, our estate was originally home to 65 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah vines. Now home to Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, and Petite Verdot. Our estate fruit is hand-harvested from terraced slopes to ensure quality in the field and on the crush pad. All Pianetta wines are well-balanced with a solid fruit base, aged in dominant tight grained oak barrels, and focus on the best fruit the vineyards produce.

Our daily operations are managed by a professional staff driven by a deep passion for wine. We offer tours and private tasting sessions, as well as frequent events and parties. Contact us to learn more about all our offerings.


Owner / Winemaker

After serving two tours as a Navy pilot in the Vietnam War, John flew for commercial and corporate airlines for over 25 years. His farming roots never left him, however, and in 1995 he settled on the land in San Miguel that would soon become Pianetta Winery and Vineyards.

After graduating from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, Caitlin took on sales and marketing for Pianetta Winery. In 2006, she spearheaded the opening of the tasting room in downtown Paso Robles to promote direct sales and grow Pianetta's beloved wine club. Now, she is head of wine-making and vineyard management at Pianetta Winery and Vineyards.
