The People


Patrick McNeil first brought the idea of Paydirt to Paso Robles in 2008. McPrice ‘Mac’ Myers was quickly identified as one of the most progressive winemakers in the area, and his respect for old world practices and new world wines made him the perfect fit for this very-California project.

Patrick has always enjoyed the creative side of the wine business. He is a brand-builder, a concept guy, and a major label geek. Paydirt, and the idea of risking it all for the greatest reward, describes his approach to winemaking, the wine business, and life in general.

Mcprice Myers is the humble, if not shy, winemaker-type whose talents are well documented by the wine cognoscenti-at-large. His wines are rich, focused, and highly expressive of the varietal and vineyard site.
