We were in the Paso Robles area, visiting several wineries that had been recommended. Halter Ranch had not been one of them, but we stopped in anyway and I'm so glad we did. The tasting room was not crowded and we had Ray as our host. He was very knowledgeable about all the wines and is a chef to boot so gave us some tips on what food to serve with each wine. We liked every single wine we tasted, both white and red, which is extremely unusual for us. We were so impressed that we even joined their wine club! We had come from Tablas Creek which I would skip next time in lieu of Halter Ranch. They are very eco-conscious to boot and store and use their own water and the winery is a built around a gravitational system. Just a great place all around!

Definitely a beautiful winery. The tasting room was very nice, and the staff was fun and friendly, Sarah, T, and "Snarky" were great!!!!!! They have quite a variety of varietals, from sparkling through Bordeaux-style blends. They even make an amazing Port-styled wine!! And if you arrive early enough, you can even get a tour of their caves, where they age the wine!!

We went here on the advice of a waiter and he was spot on! Beautiful grounds, the drive was amazing and we would like to explore more of Paso's west side.

The rose was really good and our waiter gave us the secret word for Halter Ranch's secret, their dessert wine Vin de Paille.

Go find out for yourselves!

On our way to another winery to pick up our shipment. We enjoyed Halter Ranch at the departed California Wine and Cheese shop in Monrovia. Rhone Blends-every one on the $10 tasting menu is wonderful.

Bought 2013 Rose: Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre (GSM) with a spash of Picpoul Blanc. GSMers will think they died and went to GSM heaven.

Bonus pour of 2011 Ancestor Estate Reserve $50 retail. Wine, cheese, crackers and their own olive oil for sale. Yes we bought crackers and oil too....
