Family instructors:

Howie Steinbeck, founder of Steinbeck Vineyards and fourth generation Paso Robles native, has farmed this land since childhood and has a wealth of practical knowledge and wisdom. He loves to show you what he's built with his hands and heart.

 

Cindy Steinbeck has learned wine growing from her father, so she leads modules 1 & 2 from a farmer's perspective. She also has a passion for history, learning, teaching and the future of the family business.  The Vine comes to life in module 3 as she shares what the vine has spoken to her in light of Jesus' words in John 15, "I am the vine."

 

Allen Steinbeck, leads tours from his own perspective as a son of the soil too. Allen moved home in August 2013 to help farm. His career as a pastor gives him a unique perspective as does his many years farming with his father Howie as a youngster.
