An oasis in Paso Robles Wine Country...

Kukkula Winery

kukkula (kook-koo-luh), “the hill, or high place”, in Finnish (my first language)

The dream started probably around the time we built our first home in Topanga, California. That was 1990. Around then I became somewhat infatuated with wine. I was already interested in farming, and the 2 1/2 acres we purchased provided the opportunity to dip my toes in the water. Little did I realize where it would lead!

After several years of basement winemaking and farming an acre and a half of vines, I convinced Paula to come with me to explore Paso. That was the fall of 2003. On that first trip, we discovered the Adelaida community and were instantly taken by its rugged beauty.

Days later, I was back to tour an 80 acre walnut orchard on Chimney Rock Road. Standing on the top of the steep hills overlooking Adelaida, I realized my heart was pounding out of my chest! I knew instantly where this would lead.

So, in December of 2004 we moved to the Central Coast and started to build the dream. Today, our home sits on the very spot I first stood. We farm almost fifty acres of vines, eight acres of olive trees, and 32 acres of walnuts. As of the 2013 vintage, all of our wines are from estate grown fruit and produced on site.
