Our History

After living in Paso Robles for a decade, Coy and Sarah Barnes turned their passion for wine, entertaining, and the rural countryside into a thriving little tour company called “The Wine Wrangler”. The Wine Wrangler was created on August 3, 2004 as Paso Robles’ first, authentic wine tour company.

Within a year the couple wanted to create an opportunity for everyone to enjoy the Paso Robles wine tour tasting experience throughout the year, in the comfort of their own homes. They created the first and only wine club featuring Paso Robles wines and took their family business to whole new level.

Coy Barnes, oenophile and educator, has appeared in numerous publications including, USA Today, Travel and Leisure, as well as Guest Speaker for Cal Poly, Crush and Roll, and the annual Wine Tourism Conference. He makes wine and grows his own zinfandel, cabernet sauvignon, and syrah on the family’s property in Paso Robles. When he’s not escorting visitors through the wine country, he’ll be rustling up wines from some of his favorite Paso Robles wineries and sharing them with the world through the Paso Robles Wine Club.

Our greatest pleasure is to help people from out of the area discover the diversity and finesse of Paso Robles' wines.
