Open: Year Round

Welcome to Oso Libre Ranch meaning "Free Bear" in Spanish, which represents our blended family names and the spirit of the early California pioneers.  In 1996, my wife Linda and I (Chris Behr) purchased 90 acres of raw land here in the acclaimed Adelaida region of Paso Robles.  Slowly we developed our land and turned it into a sustainable, modern working ranch that you are visiting today.  One of our sons, Jeff Freeland and his wife Elizabeth, along with their twin daughters, moved up here in 2007 to help start our family owned and operated business, Oso Libre Winery.  We opened in October 2009 after spending many years slowly learning how to grow vines and make wines.  The key ingredient to our successful Vines, Wines and Angus program is that we enjoy what we do and the lifestyle that comes with it!

We produce award winning, artisanal estate wines in limited quantities. Our sustainably farmed vineyards are deeply rooted in rugged calcareous (limestone) hills exposed to sunshine and ocean breezes consistently producing rich, complex fruit. Our harvest usually comes late in October or early November, which is at least six weeks longer than in warmer climates. This extended hang time for the grapes rewards us with premium and sophisticated fruit, resulting in exceptional wine. We invite you to experience our distinct estate vintages, blends and dessert wines.
