Recent sightings of vampires off California's winding Highway 58 have sparked rumors that Paso Robles' newest winery, Vampire Vineyards, is merely a ploy to mask the nocturnal activities of a group of ancient vampires. Investigations into the winery indicate that the CEO of the winery is actually an attorney with a history of representing unconventional clients, including rock stars, the down and out, and... vampires!
In fact, some say that the abrupt move of the winery from its base in Transylvania to Creston, California only confirms the obvious - that vampires do exist and they're hiding out in Creston, CA. While most of the locals don't know what to believe, there's no doubting one thing: The newest selection of Vampire wines is simply amazing!
The 2005 vintage Vampire Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon and the 2005 vintage Vampire Merlot are destined to join the league of the immortal for their exquisite fresh fruit forward style married with French and American Oak barrels. Vampire Vineyards' newly bottled 2006 vintage Pinot Noir is a full-bodied killer that exhibits a fresh fruit forward style.
The Vampire Vineyard's 2005 vintage chardonnay and the 2006 vintage white zinfandel are both dangerously crisp and delicious. Rumors are beginning that Vampire Vineyards have plans for an upcoming Dracula Syrah, a Dracula Zinfandel, and a red blend that will be bottled under the Chateau du Vampire label. After one drink of these magical wines, you will never search for others. You have been warned!
