Clos Solene is one of the most exciting young wineries in Paso Robles. Guillaume and Solene Fabre run this tiny property while working at L’Aventure and Halter Ranch respectively. Guillaume Fabre, a native of Languedoc, learned to make wine working alongside his father, but the lure of the American dream was too strong, and in 2004 Fabre moved to Paso Robles. Guillaume Favre crafts his Clos Solene wines at L’Aventure, where he is also the winemaker. These sleek, artisanal wines are well worth seeking out, even if pricing is high by Paso Robles standards.
