PasoPort/Per Caso Cellars/Pendray’s Distillery
PasoPort is a small family-owned winery dedicated to producing fine, fortified dessert wine. The winegrowing region of Paso Robles is an untapped and, in our opinion, ideal location for making this style of wine.
So, why exclusively produce just Port-style wines? Owner’s Steve and Lola Glossner share in the day-to-day operations of this small family owned winery. Steve has over a decade of experience producing wines from within the Paso Robles appellation. As a present day wine consultant, Steve is involved with a number of different winery owners producing a broad range of table wines. With his immersion in all these different programs, producing dessert wines for his own label provides Steve an important creative outlet while not competing with any of the wines he produces for his clients. Besides, making fortified dessert wines is a heck of a lot more fun!
In January, 2014 PasoPort acquired Per Caso Cellars. If you aren’t familiar with Per Caso, here’s a little bit of history; Steve, owner and winemaker for PasoPort, has been Per Caso’s winemaker since the beginning of the brand start up in 2007. Per Caso’s wine portfolio consists of several single varietal, blended red and white wines and a few estate reserve wines.
Per Caso offers a greater breadth of wine options for you to discover and enjoy; with the common denominator being Steve’s winemaking style expressed in each and every bottle.
The newest addition to the PasoPort family of brands,‘Pendray’s Distillery’, named after Lola’s maiden name and originating from Cornwall England, ‘Pendray’ which is Cornish, is a race of people with a rich Celtic heritage and an indomitable fighting spirit who inhabited the Southwest of England.
Having a distillery was always part of the business plan for PasoPort, in fact, we had a distillery in mind when we made the first port for PasoPort, it just took a little time to accomplish. In 2013, we purchased a 500 liter German pot still from Holstein. Now, in our fourth year of distilling, we are in full production of spirits for sipping, mixing and fortifying our port wines.
Our portfolio currently consists of Port Barrel Aged Brandy’s and Grappa’s along with a few seasonal fruit based Liqueurs. To see our current selection of spirits click on the below button “Check out our Spirits”.
