Saxum Vineyards is a boutique winery overseen by winemakers Heather and Justin Smith in the Temple Gap area of Paso Robles, California. The winery focuses on red wines using the Rhone varietal stalwarts Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvedre. Production is kept to the minimal output of under 3000 cases per year, with low yields divided between the Broken Stones, Heart Stone, James Berry, Booker, Rocket Block, and Bone Rock vineyards.

The wines are handmade, organic, and sustainable, free of added chemicals or vineyard pesticides.  Read less
