Culton Wines


Terry Culton has been making acclaimed wines for over 20 years.  His early story is one of many great Mentors... beginning with Ken Volk at Wild Horse. Ken is one of the true Mavericks of the Central Coast, starting Wild Horse when there were only a handful of wineries in the area. Ken's generosity, skill and passion for wine helped launch the ship....the Muse of Pinot Noir set Terry off on his Odyssey along the west coast.


Terry traveled on the “Pinot Trail” working in the Anderson Valley (Edmeades) and Oregon’s Willamette Valley (Willamette Valley Vineyards) before moving to Hollister to work with the iconic Josh Jensen at Calera. Josh is a visionary of Pinot Noir. He pioneered the varietal in the United States and has created some of the most inspired and exciting wines from those plantings.

Drawn by the Siren Song of Old-Vine Pinot Noir at Adelaida Cellars, Terry left Calera and returned to the Central Coast to work with HMR (Hoffman Mountain Ranch) fruit. For 10 years, he honed his unique style of vineyard driven, well-balanced wines. In the search for greater creative freedom, it was time to launch Culton Wines.

All Culton wines are hand-made in small lots from Ultra-Premium central coast grapes. Unfiltered and Unfined, the results are elegant and food-friendly manifestations of the terroir. 



We have decided to close our Avila beach Tasting room and relocate to Tin City in Paso Robles.

We have a new location that we are in the midst of designing and are excited to be moving to in the new Year! 








The Wandering Cult is our mobile tasting room that hits the road at anytime of the year. Find us, pull us over and the wine tasting is on us... Identify us by the logo on the back of the trailer - 'The Wandering Cult'!  

You can track us on instagram or facebook for dates of when The Wandering Cult hits the road!



Culton Wine will be hosting two spring pickup parties this year for members of The Cult. One will be at the new tasting room in Tin City and the other at Glencoe Retreat in Venice Beach.  Terry will be pouring some of the new vintages directly out of the barrel for all to enjoy. The official dates will be updated in the early spring.  If you are interested in coming, please email Denny at for details.


The wandering cult is hitting the road

In two weeks, the weekend of February 24th, The Wandering Cult will be hitting the road to a destination unknown for a long weekend.  Be sure to watch for the hint as to which direction it will be traveling and if you spot it, pull it over for a free tasting of Culton Wine.
