Justin Winery expands with new buildings at business park 

Approved plans for two new storage facilities for Justin Vineyards & Winery.

New facilities add to company’s local footprint 

Justin Vineyard & Winery is currently constructing new large facilities at 2265 Wisteria Lane, Paso Robles, in the Golden Hills Business Park. The projects can be seen on the north side of Highway 46 East.

This site currently measures around 20 acres and the new construction will measure around 12 acres on this lot. The Justin Winery Building No. 4 & 5 Project was approved for construction in 2021. It will consist of two buildings: No. 4 will measure around 113,960 feet and function as barrel storage, along with shipping and receiving areas and a merch yard, while No. 5 will measure around 125,700 feet and serve as space for bottling, case goods, and office space.

The Paso Robles Planning Commission held a public hearing on in March 2021 and the Paso Robles City Council held one in April 2021 with a final determination to approve the project; the different findings that led to this approval included that the new buildings would contribute to the city’s quality, be found in a suitable location, and not pose a detriment to the surrounding community.

Late mayor Steve Martin, along with councilmembers John Hamon, Steve Gregory, Maria Garcia and Fred Strong all voted unanimously in favor of approval.

Part of the approval included the removal of a 33-inch blue oak tree on the property, along with the replanting of 11 15-gallon and two one-gallon oak trees. Chip Tamagni, a certified arborist with A&T Arborists, now called 4GT, concluded in a report that “the tree has sustained past failures, pests, and structural deficiencies…being in a stressed condition with no signs of growth during the last growing season,” as summarized in Resolution 21-040 by the Paso Robles City Council.
