Winemaker Evening: Ryan Pease of Paix Sur Terre

March 26 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

- $50.00 – $95.00

Join us for an evening with Ryan Pease of Paix Sur Terre

Paix Sur Terre, French for “Peace on Earth,” was the dream for Ryan and his wife, Nicole. They envisioned creating a portfolio of truly mineral-driven Mourvèdres along with small lots of Grenache and Syrah, so they founded Paix Sur Terre in 2010 to produce the wines they love—single-vineyard Mourvédre, Rhône blends, and Mediterranean-style white wines. With fruit sourced from some of the best vineyards in Paso Robles, Paix Sur Terre has developed a reputation for truly creative wines that stand out from the crowd, producing unique varietals not found anywhere else in Paso. As Paix Sur Terre has grown, more people have come to love not only the wines, but the family behind the wines. Now is your time to meet Ryan, taste the wines, and learn about the journey he and Nicole have been on to bring such creative wines to the world.

At Paix Sur Terre, grapes are sourced from nine stunning vineyards on the west side of Paso Robles and are considered some of the greatest sites in the area. The fruit is always picked keeping freshness in mind to express a balance of mouthwatering, savory, and mineral qualities. Ryan uses minimal oak, lots of whole cluster, and does everything possible to make site-specific wines.

 “Come for the wine, stay for the winemaker, leave with a bottle!”

Ryan Pease started out in the wine industry while attending college at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. Looking for a part time job, he came across a posting for tasting room help at Linne Calodo in Paso Robles. At that point in his life, Ryan could often be found with a glass of wine by his side; it may have been obvious to some that wine would be his future. While on a break from school at Cal Poly, Ryan took a fated trip to France, and it was there that he set his mind on making wine. One night, he said, “I was sitting on the banks of the Rhône River in the same spot Van Gogh painted ‘A Starry Night’ watching the fireworks of the Bastille Day celebration.” He was sipping from a bottle of Domaine Tempier, and it was one of those moments you never forget. It all clicked for him, then and there.

Ryan went on to finish his finance degree at Cal Poly and spent an additional year getting his Wine and Viticulture minor. After a couple harvests working with well-known Paso Robles wineries like Linne Calodo and Epoch and growing his love for winemaking all the while, Ryan decided to start Paix Sur Terre. During this time, Ryan was promoted to winemaker at Grey Wolf Cellars, revitalized their wine program, and took it to heights that had not been achieved there previously. Afterwards, Ryan accepted the winemaking role at Brecon Estate before leaving to focus 100% on Paix Sur Terre.

 “Come for the wine, stay for the winemaker, leave with a bottle!”

The Winemaker evening takes place in a very special and unique Santa Barbara home with a view like no other. This modern home, with its large arched glass walls, features an unusual panoramic northern view looking across the bay; from Ventura in the east, along the mountains past the 154 San Marcos pass, to Gaviota in the west. Truly a sight!
