ONX represents Paso's spirit of experimentation, renegade attitude with high winemaking aptitude that results in big flavors & finesse.
"Their high scores speak for themselves. ONX brings a symphony of flavors from their unique blends that make them stand out from the crowd. Their commitment to sustainability and soil-geeky nature make them a delight to drink with - and no one is more geeky in Paso then Jeff!" - Naushad Huda
We're excited to have Jeff Strekas from ONX Wines come visit us and share his passion for wine. After abandoning his initial stint as a biochemist, he found his true love in winemaking. His well rounded journey includes placements at Merryvale Vineyards in St Helena, Franciscan Estate in Rutherford, Mollydooker in McLaren Vale, Australia, and Round Pond Estate in Rutherford.
Given that he lists his heroes as Statler and Waldorf (from the Muppet Show), Dr. Bruce Banner (aka the Incredible Hulk), and Captain Quint (from Jaws), it is no surprise that Jeff found his way to Paso Robles, instead of rooting himself in a more traditional wine region, and has been part of the ONX Team for over 10 years.
The onyx calcite hiding within the soil of ONX Estate Vineyards, as with their grapes, reflects uniquely elegant character once plucked from the rough and polished. That character is further improved by our constant pursuit of balance in our vineyard. As a certified California Sustainable Vineyard, they are committed to a sustainable relationship with nature and believe in leaving things better than we found them.
These principles has resulted in truly exceptional wines. Rocks and dirt. Vines and grapes. Effort and art.
