Located between San Francisco and Los Angeles, Paso Robles is famous for its rolling hillsides to the east and web of rivers and canyons to the west.
The region's mineral-rich history began over five million years ago. A series of glaciers and an ancient ocean left an abundance of fossilized sea creatures, limestone soil, and incredible geological diversity.
Today, the site's famous microclimate features cool, foggy mornings blown in by Pacific breezes followed by a warm sun throughout the day. This famously high diurnal range creates a perfect home for our grapes, creating wines with a rare balance of ripeness and freshness.
For Tapestry, the art of the blend is everything. We weave together fruit from select vineyards in both the eastern and western halves of Paso Robles, which include several of the districts shown here. This lets us create a wine of balance, complexity, and artistry: a true embodiment of Paso Robles.
A native of Orange County, CA, Megan attended California Polytechnic University in San Luis Obispo to study food science. Surrounded by several picturesque wineries and vineyards while attending school, she took a part-time job in the tasting room at a local winery, which began her fascination with wine.
After graduating in 2015 with a B.S. in Food Science, Megan spent the next several years making wine across Napa Valley and Paso Robles. Joining Beaulieu Vineyard in 2017, today she is proud to be Assistant Winemaker at this iconic Napa Valley property.
Megan's latest venture is as Winemaker of Tapestry in Paso Robles. There, she practices a well-honed balancing act: using the most modern technology to craft a timeless expression of place.
My fascination with California wine continues to grow every day. I enjoy sharing that passion & knowledge by blending a modern approach with the timeless traditions of Paso Robles winemaking.” — Megan Twitchell
