Growing up in the lower east side of Manhattan Island, Warren Frankel never imagined that he would one day be a grape grower, raising a family and building a medical practice in the oak covered rolling hills of Paso Robles, California. It was after 25 years of schooling and medical studies that Warren began to sense the yearnings for feeling the dirt beneath his feet and to harvest a crop off the land. Following his residency at U.C.L.A., and the opening of his medical practice in the San Fernando Valley in Southern California he began to take his take his desire for a simpler and more self-reliant lifestyle seriously. In 1979, Dr. Frankel moved his family and medical practice to a beautiful 90 acre ranch located in the Linne Valley of Paso Robles.

The Frankel family first planted 20 acres of pistachios' on the ranch, followed by 20 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. After the initial success with the Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard, Dr. Frankel expanded his plantings in 1997, planting an additional 80 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon, 10 acres of Zinfandel and 10 acres of Merlot. Cabernet Franc, Mouvedre, Petite Sirah and Viognier are the most recent additions to the vineyard.

The Frankel estate grapes are cultivated to promote intense, varietal flavors that can then be sculpted in the cellar into a final artistic statement. Meticulous winemaking practices coax the true varietal essences of the fruit forward, allowing for wines that are full-bodied, rich, and expressive. The Sculpterra portfolio of premium wines is priced from $12 - $35 and includes Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Petite Sirah, Syrah and Zinfandel. A Merlot and a Bordeaux blend will be added to the collection in the future. Sculpterra Winery has combined wine and art with a wonderful line-up of wines, a beautiful setting and an original sculpture garden.

The Tasting Room and Sculpture Garden offers the visitor an exceptional wine tasting experience. The Sculpture garden features larger-than-life sculptures by sculptor John Jagger. Sculpted from granite and bronze, the sculptures will inspire - as will the wines.
