Our story in a few more words

Optio comes from the Latin word for "choice". At Optio Vineyards, we believe that just as we make choices in life, so too, we make choices in the vineyard and in the wine-making process.

Optio Vineyards is a micro-boutique winery located in Paso Robles, CA. Established in 2014, our mission is to select the best grapes, from the best vineyards, to create the best wines in the region.

Optio Vineyards works meticulously with our vineyard manager and winemaker to craft the most balanced wines in Paso Robles. Our estate LaMar Vineyard sits on a hilltop at 1100 foot elevation nestled in the tail end of the Templeton gap within the Geneseo District appellation.

We produce a limited amount of wine each year. Low yields, high quality.

What our community says

Kayla | Tannic and Lovely Tastemaker

"Troy 👨🏻‍🦱, Michelle 👩🏻 and their son LT 👶🏻 (too young yet to drink wine, but incredibly cute and polite) opened Optio in 2014 bringing their dream to reality. Troy, a general surgeon 👨🏻‍⚕️  in Los Angeles fell in love with wine at a steakhouse when his colleague wouldn't allow him to drink a vodka tonic🍸  with his steak 🥩  and insisted he try it with a cabernet sauvignon 🍷. 😂  He never looked back and decided he wanted to create wine of his own. Made in Paso Robles, Optio wine is full bodied with big bold flavors and reminds me of family gatherings and deep bowls of spaghetti and meatballs 🍝.  "
