Chumeia Vineyards

Chumeia Vineyards

Chumeia's winery is located along scenic Highway 46 East in Paso Robles. Ancient Greeks had a word for alchemy; Chumeia (koo-may-a) is that word. Historic alchemists believed that by applying four basic elements: heat, air, earth and water as well as philisophical beliefs, they could transform basic elements into gold.

Lee Nesbitt, Chumeia's Winemaker, believes that not only is winemaking an alchemic process, but the grapevine has its own transformation of basic elements to gold (the grapes). Holding true to form, Chumeia's philosophy is to source exceptional fruit from specific locations. This philosophy allows the dynamics of the vineyard to be expressed by blending specific lots, thus achieving varietal correctness and complexity.

Chumeia Vineyards: Barbera Partridge-Leigh Vineyards, 2006
We are very pleased with the Barbera that we receive from the Partridge-Leigh Vineyard. Taming the acid on this varietal can be a challenge. For this reason, many winemakers use the Barbera grape as a blender.

This cab is loaded with fruit (strawberries, plum, cherry and blackberry) all of which is laced together with aromas of anise, vanilla, cedar and a myriad of spices. The tannins are layered into the palate and balanced by the focused tannins that all end with a great finish of all the above.

"This wine will make your tongue slap you silly! The 2007 is loaded up front with sweet pear and apple tones then swings in all the lush tropical aromas of pineapple and mango. All of these flavors thrive in layers of sweet French and American oak and then a solid finish! One of my favorites! Enjoy! " Lee Nesbitt, Winemaker

Chumeia Vineyards: Zinfandel Dante Dusi, 2005
This wine contains complex flavors that reveal themselves over time. When first opened and sipped, it is of sweet raspberry. But as you let it breathe, oaky and cherry notes come from this smooth wine.

Chumeia Vineyards: Zinfandel California, 2006
Our first release of our new California Zinfandel has already turned into a tasting room favorite since its release in May 2008. This Zin is the bruiser of the bunch. Big over ripe fruits, and big alcohol to balance it all off.
