Robert came to the area from Malibu and Jo-Ann from the Pacific Palisades, California. They enjoy and live on their 40-acre property with their Dog Ralphie and Son Garrett(Who is up North attending California State University studying Business Management Accounting/Finance!)

Due to the advantageous climate and soil of their 40 acre property, Robert believes his "Willow Creek" Westside Paso Robles vineyard is in the perfect location! As a result of warm summer days and cooler nights, their hillside & hilltop vineyards receive the coastal sea breeze as it filters through the canyons which benefits both the red and white varietal grapes. The rocky limestone soil produces lower yields, and very concentrated flavors.

Topping off these ideal growing conditions, Robert supervises all of the production in the Estate Vineyards, Winery & is the Owner/Winemaker,
"My focus is on quality," Robert says.
"Making and producing Estate wines from your own vineyard property...Now that's what it's all about!"

Established in 1991...The winery currently produces around 2,500 cases annually. Robert and Jo-Ann prefer to remain small so they can retain closeness with their Wine Club Members & visitors.

The trip to Dunning Vineyards is worth it just for the scenery alone. Located just a few turns off Hwy 46 West or Vineyard Drive...
