My Favorite Neighbor is an honest wine. An obsessive wine. It’s a set of people and circumstances that can’t be replicated. It’s a shared vision, distinctly defined. Like all good wines, it starts in the vineyard. Rich clay soil that is strikingly similar to those of Napa and Bordeaux stretches around us in the Westside Hills of Paso Robles. A beacon to top talent, it has attracted a group of farmers and viticulturists whose meticulousness and knowledge is unmatched. The type of people you want on your team. We hand selected the best vineyard sites, the ones whose potential couldn’t be ignored, and work closely with the growers who own them. Through these collaborations each one, as well as their crews, has become My Favorite Neighbor.
These are people who share not only our goal of making world class Cabernet, but the intensity with which we feel it, and take extreme pride in growing the grapes that make it possible. They work hard without burning out, driven by the integrity of their purpose rather than fortune or fame. They simply want to be the greatest at what they do. Each set of calloused hands belongs to somebody who knows every vine and feels the vineyard’s soul. This is a group whose dedication far surpasses what is normal.
Farming at this level, with old school values and cutting edge technology, is how we are able to make a wine that stands up to the most notable cult Cabernets in the world. There are no additives or magic tricks. No manipulations, shortcuts or compromises, ever. My Favorite Neighbor was inspired by doing what’s right. We’re grateful to be on the Westside of Paso where the soil, team and vision all converge to make this project a reality. Welcome to the neighborhood.
