Heavy Rainfall in Paso—a Prelude to an Abundant Growing Season

The spring season has brought an influx of rainfall to Paso Robles wine country, nearly surpassing the seasonal rainfall average—a fantastic start to the 2024 growing season. 

An atmospheric river rainstorm in late January and early February is an event to be celebrated by the Paso Robles wine community. Similar to the start of the 2023 season heralded as one of the finest of the past decade, 2024 is showing similarly promising signs.

The diverse landscape of Paso Robles, with its range of elevations, valleys, and soil compositions soaked up the rains,  priming the vineyards.With these conditions, we anticipate a stunning third vintage from our Deseo Estate in the Estrella District, where Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Tempranillo, and Syrah.

With heavy rainfall also comes the potential risk of erosion and vine damage. However, meticulous preparation has been taken by our Vineyard Management  team to ensure vine integrity. Working with Mother Nature to capitalize on her bounty and minimize her threats is the secrte to growing thr best possible wines in this region.

This upcoming vintage promises exceptional quality across Serial's portfolio, highlighting the distinctive characteristics of each varietal and terroir. From the lush and bright Serial Viognier sourced from Willow Creek District, to the rich and bold Serial Cabernet Sauvignon grown in Santa Margarita Ranch, Serial Wines continue to capture the essence of Paso Robles. 

The outlook for the 2024 growing season is promising at Serial’s Deseo Estate and throughout the Paso Robles region. We invite you to join us at the Serial Wines Tasting Lounge in downtown Paso to experience the fruits of earlier vintages and gain insight into the exciting 2024 vintage ahead.
