The vision of three motivated people helped make Calcareous Vineyard a reality. Lloyd Messer sold his wine and beer distributing business in Sioux City, Iowa, to search for the ideal growing region for his vineyard sites. He recognized Paso Robles, California, as an emerging premium wine producing area. Daughter Dana Brown sold her Iowa wine distributing business to partner with Lloyd and shape the dream with her passion and classic style. We hope you will join us as we embark on an adventure into the wonderful world of wine. Calcareous Vineyard possesses all of the ingredients necessary to reach our goal of producing one of the highest quality wines in the state. We have the land, weather, sunshine, vines, and winemaker, creating the optimal conditions for the development of the best possible wines. Most importantly, it is our pleasure to offer you what the ancient Greeks called "the gift of the gods". – Description from dvoristanac

  • So what’s not to like? 2010 Barolo is in the hype machine right now and as much as i would like to say that they hype machine is in overdrive, which it perennially is, this is one time where much might be warranted. that’s not to say that 2010 is a universally fabulous vintage. It simply is not with more than a handful of wines showing under-rip... Read More

  • Calcareous Syrah Paso Robles 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Deep purple with aromas of plums, black cherries, and boysenberry, with a touch of vanilla oak. The palate is dense and opulent, almost creamy. Tannins are quite firm but are balanced by the immensely concentrated fruit. Other flavors detected include cocoa, allspice, and smoked meat. Read More

  •   My wife had some carry over vacation from last year that she needed to use up so we decided to head back to Paso Robles for a couple of days.Scanning our tasting notes from 2008 there was a predominance of zinfandel and syrah in the tasting rooms.  Fast forward to 2013 and we are tasting almost exclusively Rhone blends (reds and whites).  We d...

  • Calcareous Paso Robles Tres Violet 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Uber ripe, thick and rich, with a very perfumed nose of macerated blackberries and baked figs plus tea and incense. The weight is balanced by just enough acid. The balance of this wine despite everything should make this wine enjoyable to traditional Rhone fans and New World lovers alike. Read More

  • Calcareous Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles Twisted Sisters 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Ladies and Gentlemen meet an inexpensive, Paso Robles cab that has both (that's right both) that lushious fruit and great body you love AND structure and acidity to add depth and liveliness. This is achieved by combining mostly Paso fruit with a good helping of York Mountain fruit. And what a combo it makes. Black cherry and currants as well ... Read More

  • Cascina Roccalini Barbaresco DOCG

    Snoothrank:

    From south- to southwest facing vineyard, in calcareous soil. Spends 12 months in Slovenian grandi botti. Plum and blackcurrant aromas, violets, minerally. Rich, but elegant. Complex. Very long finish. Its probably a shame to drink it this young, as it should be an even more stunning wine some 10 years from now, but it is more than approacha... Read More
