Treana Winery, Paso Robles

We had a wonderful bottle of Paso Robles wine last night that I just HAVE to tell you about!

When I was in Paso Robles at the beginning of May, I stopped by a wine shop (actually the local Von's) and bought a few bottles of local wine to try.

This was one of them - 2007 Treana Central Coast White. It is a blend of Viognier (53%) and Marsanne (47%). Wow! It was outstanding!

Treana also makes a red blend, predominately cabernet but blended with Syrah. I haven't tasted that one for a couple of years, but it also has been terrific.

From their website:

The name Treana symbolizes a trinity of natural elements – the sun, the soil, and the ocean – elements that make Paso Robles, and the rest of the Central Coast, an exceptional area for wine grapes.

Treana wines reflect local geography and climate: rolling hills, calcareous soils, sunny summer days tempered by cool afternoon ocean breezes and as much as forty-degree temperatures swings between day and night. The grapes respond accordingly, with good sugar levels and balanced acids.


Treana is owned and operated by the Hope Family. They have grown grapes in the Paso Robles area since 1978 and began making their own wines in 1990.

Treana (Premium blends, white and red) has other sibling brands: Liberty School (Cabernet, Chardonnay and Syrah), Austin Hope (Syrah, Grenache and Roussanne), and Candor (Merlot and Zin).

One of these days when I am in Paso, I intend to go to the winery to taste ALL of their wines. I know I like the Treana blends, so I would expect the others to be good too.


By the way, The Paso Robles Wine Country Alliance is a great resource for wineries in that area, with profiles of each one.

I also love this wine. We can get it in Washington at our Costco. It is a perfect Summer drink.

I love Treana wine. I remember when they had the tasting room on Arbor Road years ago(now where Summerwood is), but we haven't been to the downtown location. We had the Central Coast White when we stayed at our favorite Paso B&B last March and it was great. We picked up more at the Paso Albertson's which has a really good wine selection.

Rebecca,
I LOVE shopping for wine at Albertson's.

I went to Von's on this last trip because it was on my way to Hwy 46 East, and I didn't want to drive all the way to Albertson's.
