Caliza Winery


Caliza is a small, family-owned and operated vineyard and winery located in the coveted Willow Creek district of Paso Robles, California. Our focus is on crafting wines from varietals common to the Rhône Valley of France - Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Viognier, among others. But like many winemakers in Paso Robles, we like to throw a surprise or two in the mix. Our wines reflect what we feel are an excellent example of what the region has to offer – bold, yet elegant wines that drink well today and well into the future.

Caliza is Spanish for "limestone", which is an important component of Caliza's vineyard. The 20-acre vineyard is predominantly comprised of hillsides with south-facing slopes. This orientation is preferable due to the maximum sun exposure for the vines. The lower vineyard blocks are at 900 feet above sea level and range up to 1200 feet at the highest blocks. Being located within the Templeton Gap area, the vineyard faces significant swings in day and night temperatures with as much as 40 degree variations. This allows the fruit to hold onto its acidity as long as possible during the long, warm growing season.



Carl Bowker, a relative newcomer to the world of winemaking, has followed a long yet steady path towards his goal of producing special wines. Born and raised in Hawaii, Carl began his farming experience while tagging along with his father, an irrigation specialist to the local farms. This early introduction left a lasting impression and true appreciation for soils and the farming life. Little did he realize that this childhood curiosity would lead him to the special soils of Paso Robles, California.
