We caught up with Amy Butler of Ranchero Cellars at the first-ever Paso Robles Garagiste Festival. This festival is geared towards those small production wine gigs that maybe don’t have a tasting room or just don’t get the recognition that they deserve. They’re the ones in the garages and warehouses making small-lot wines that will knock your socks off! And they’re all gathered here, at the Garagiste Festival.
Ranchero Cellars and Amy Butler
Amy Butler is the mind behind Ranchero Cellars…she’s been making wine for a long time, even though she’s a young, cutting edge artist in the Paso Robles wine region. Amy likes things like rusty spurs, old tractors and many things Americana…she celebrates the natural style of making wine from interesting varieties, using minimal techniques during the process, and puts out wines that show off what the land can create; great wines from solid fruit.

Jeff, that is not our wine but it is our friend Amy’s wine. She does amazing things. My wife and I do not make wine, we drink it and talk about it. Cheers to you!
