About Us -
San Marcos Creek Vineyard & Winery ….
A dream, a desire, a passion … The Morelli family thought about in 2008 that is was time to venture into something new and a new location. The big dream was vineyards, winery and orchards ! This was something Roberto dreamed about since he was a child, and something that Kimberly and the kids where eager to do and enjoy. In 2013, they all packed up and moved to San Luis Obispo County and started a new journey. After Roberto retired in 2014, they set in search of vineyard and winery they would enjoy working with and trying a new job. In 2015, the Morelli Family purchased San Marcos Creek Vineyard.
The person that works at bringing dream come through ! Attentive to details and tons of drive and passion! When Kimberly learns about dreams Roberto or kids have, she actively works at making sure they move towards reality. Kimberly has many roles at the family business from managing livestock on the farm to dealing with vendors, promotions, new ideas and overall operations of winery to managing the family business and keep it running smoothly ! She is a dynamo !
With the love of science, chemistry and old world ways of doing certain tasks, Roberto decided to pursue the role of Winemaker along with many other duties. With his wide range of skills and attention to details, you will find Roberto either working in the vineyard, winery or office constantly learning new things and producing new items. It’s exciting to watch him in action and working !
