Quest aims to express the potential and excitement of Paso Robles. 


As makers and dreamers, Quest is never at rest. They are constantly in pursuit of the possibilities they have yet to create. Quest was born in the spirit and out of a love for American oak and Cabernet Franc. Cabernet Franc is one of the noble grapes of the world-famous Bordeaux region and yet was not widely planted in California, let alone Paso Robles. The fact is, Cabernet Franc is very particular when it comes to soil and temperature. 


After years of trial and error, Quest discovered the perfect terroir and microclimate in the Paso Robles AVA for the persnickety Cabernet Franc. Once their vines were established, Quest worked with their coopers to create the standard for luxury American oak barrels that would complement our vision for a world-class Cabernet Franc blend. Quest believes that creating an exceptional Cabernet Franc is much like creating an exquisite Pinot Noir; both varieties are soil, site, and temperature driven. The Cabernet Franc in this blend thrives in a distinct soil and requires a slightly cooler climate than Cabernet Sauvignon and the other grapes that dominate their local AVA. The journey from vision to bottle has been one of discovering the perfect elements to achieve their dream
