The Essence of Paso Robles
Robert Hall Winery is situated in the Paso Robles appellation. Paso Robles is located 20 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean, literally halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco. We are in the center of the Central Coast wine region which spans from Monterey County in the north to Santa Barbara County in the south. The climate and diverse Hall Ranch vineyard soils provide optimal growing conditions for warm region varietals, especially our late season reds. Hot days end with
coastal breezes that flow over the Santa Lucia Mountain Range to cool the vineyards in the evenings, delivering near perfect growing conditions that allow our reds to reach optimal maturity, yielding full bodied-- intense color red wines with incredible phenolic structure.
