From the Vineyard to the bottle, Proulx Wines is a family operation that has been carefully tended and nurtured by owners, Genoa and Kevin Riley, since the beginning.
The name, Proulx, is Kevinís maternal family name and its roots lie in Genoaís family vineyard, located in the heart of Paso Roblesí renowned West Side. The fifty-five year old vineyard has produced stellar wines for many years, and when the Rileys began crushing fruit for Proulx in 2004, it did not disappoint. After taking a chance and chasing their dream to make exceptional wine of their own, they hit the ground running, selling out of 200 cases of their first vintage in a matter of months.
The years following have brought continued success for Proulx Wines, and the Rileys attribute a large part of that success to the fact that they are able to source the best fruit from the choicest vineyards, in addition to their own. Kevinís experience consulting for many local wineries has cemented long-existing relationships with growers allowing him to hand-pick the fruit he knows will be right to create the trademark smoothness of each Proulx wine.
Today, Proulx Wines produces 1500 cases yearly with a tight focus on creating high-quality, approachable wines that are ready to drink at an early age. They are wines without pretense, equally suitable for casual evenings spent with those closest to you and special occasions that call for a smooth, refined wine. Most importantly, they are meant to be enjoyed amongst family and friends, and behind every bottle are the passion and dedication of the Riley family.
