Our Story

Vigo Cellars is a family-owned, artisan winery dedicated to the crafting of American Rhone wines.  Dan and Kim Rodrigues launched Vigo Cellars in 2008 with a single vineyard Syrah from the Avila Valley in the San Luis Obispo Coast wine region, later expanding the portfolio to include a Grenache Blanc, Viognier, and Grenache.

With a focus on the crafting of small lots, Vigo Cellars utilizes new world winemaking techniques as well as time honored, old-world methods to express each vineyard’s terroir, while highlighting the varietal’s characteristics.

Named “Vigo” as a tribute to the Rodrigues family heritage, the brand embodies the spirit of adventure.  With a journey that began in the Galicia region of northwest Spain, and included travels to Argentina, the Hawaiian Islands and San Francisco, California, the Rodrigues family settled in the San Joaquin Valley in the late-1930’s, farming vineyards and almonds.  Three generations later, we are continuing this quest with Vigo Cellars – artisan crafted wines from select vineyards in the Paso Robles, San Luis Obispo Coastal and Santa Barbara County wine growing regions.

Seek adventure, follow your dreams and enjoy a fabulous glass of Vigo Cellars wine with family and friends!  

Cheers,
Dan, Kim, Lauren & Megan Rodrigues
