About Tackitt Family Vineyards
In the 1970s, Leon Tackitt’s grandfather brought 29 Gewürztraminer vines back from Germany and planted them on his Paso Robles property.
With retirement from a 28-year career in the U.S. Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD), coming into view, Leon and his wife Cindy dreamed of making their own wine from the modest family vineyard. In the fall of 2007, Cindy and Leon decided to take what his grandfather had planted to the next level, and Tackitt Family Vineyards began.
In 2009, cloning his grandfather’s vines, Leon planted an acre of Gewurztraminer on the west side of the property, as well as an acre of Petite Sirah on the east side. You can see both of these vineyards during your visit, and pay homage the original Gewurztraminer vines that started it all!
Leon and Cindy have dedicated the last 14 years to building a family-friendly winery, specializing in handcrafted, premium wines. You’re invited to come out snd talk with the winemaker, enjoy our boutique wines, throw a ball for our winery dogs, Harley and Lincoln, and relax in our country setting. We look forward to meeting you and sharing our love of wine with you!
