Our Winery
Calcareous VineyardCalcareous Vineyard

The vision of three motivated people helped make Calcareous Vineyard a reality. Lloyd Messer sold his wine and beer distributing business in Sioux City, Iowa, to search for the ideal growing region for his vineyard sites. He recognized Paso Robles, California, as an emerging premium wine producing area. Daughter Dana Brown sold her Iowa wine distributing business to partner with Lloyd and shape the dream with her passion and classic style. Erika Messer, Dana’s younger sister, seized the opportunity to be involved in the winery from the ground up with a hands-on approach.

We hope you will join us as we embark on an adventure into the wonderful world of wine. Calcareous Vineyard possesses all of the ingredients necessary to reach our goal of producing one of the highest quality wines in the state. We have the land, weather, sunshine, vines, and winemaker, creating the optimal conditions for the development of the best possible wines. Most importantly, it is our pleasure to offer you what the ancient Greeks called "the gift of the gods".
