The Home Vineyard is located due east of the winery in the rolling hills just above the Estrella Plain. These hillside soils are made up of decomposed granite and transition into loamy clays at lower elevation. The vineyard is planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Zinfandel, Grenache Blanc, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, Orange Muscat and our “Durrell” Syrah. This 140-acre planting is our largest and most mature, and serves as our foundation, producing the core of our wines. The Hall Ranch Guest Cottage is located amidst the vines on the Home Vineyard.
The Terrace Vineyard is found on the rolling terrace situated above the southern bank of the Estrella River. Here the vines are rooted in porous sandy loam soils lain down by the Estrella moving in its course. The vineyard is planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah Noir, Grenache Noir, Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc, Grenache, Cinsaut, Malbec, Mourvèdre, Counoise, Piquepol Blanc, Roussanne, Orange Muscat, and our Port varieties – Souzão, Alvarelhão, Touriga and Tinta Cão. This diverse 65-acre planting serves to broaden our palate by producing flavors that add the nuances essential to crafting wines of distinction.
The Bench Vineyard wraps around the Robert Hall Winery and Hospitality Center, on the bench overlooking Huerhuero Creek. The soil here is an alluvial, stony, decomposed granite soil deposited by the Huerhuero as it cut its way through the area to drain into the Estrella River. This well drained soil is the home to clone 8 Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah Noir vines that are inherently low yielding due to the rigors of the site. This 12-acre vineyard consistently produces some of our most intense and concentrated Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah.
Robert Hall Winemaker Don Brady’s family vineyard shares the rolling young river terrace south of the Estrella just east of our Terrace Vineyard. This vineyard’s soils are comprised of sandy clay loam alluvial terrace soils. This 18-acre vineyard is planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, which serve to complement our other plantings of these varietals, and to Petite Sirah that further broadens the palate of varieties we have to work with.
