8/10-Michael Jordan talks with Donald Thiessen & Alberto Minardi

Donald Thiessen - Owner/Winemaker - Stacked Stone Cellars
Stacked Stone Cellars began in 1998 when owner, Donald Thiessen, united his love of fine craftsmanship with a love of wine. Stacked Stone Cellars produces small quantities of hand crafted wine. Donald named his "liquid assets" after the elaborate stacked stone landscaping adorning the winery grounds and estate vineyard.

The estate vineyard produces low yields of highly concentrated, jammy, and intense Zinfandel fruit. The vines are sustainably dry farmed and head pruned on the west side Paso Robles, where the soils are rich in minerals and nutrients. The soil is calcareous and siliceous composed of shale, mudstone, siltstone and limestone providing the optimum terroir for Zinfandel. The estate fruit is gently harvested to produce our flagship and award wining wine the "Zin Stone".

We work closely with other sustainable grape growers in Paso Robles, that provide the highest quality grapes available, to produce our award wining Rhone and Bordeaux blends, as well as a Rhone style Rose, and Madera region style Port.
Enjoy the cool ambiance of our tasting room while you learn about our specific vineyard to bottle approach. As you taste our delectable wines, you can look around at the barrels that are gently ripening our next
vintages, enjoy our vintage posters and art, and of course, meet Donald himself. Plan on enjoying our beautiful picnic area under the ancient oaks with a bottle of Stacked Stone Cellars wine and a picnic! During the summer months we rock the canyon with live music so check out the events section for up-coming concerts.

Our tasting room is open Friday and Saturday from 11-5, Sunday from 12-5, and during the week by appointment @ 805-238-7872. We welcome children and pets, so bring the whole family! See you here!
