About Halter Ranch Vineyard

Historic Halter Ranch is a vineyard and winery located in the heart of the Paso Robles Adelaida District. Tradition and innovation mix at Halter Ranch to produce Bordeaux and Rhône wines of the highest quality.

Halter Ranch recently expanded to include a new winery facility and tasting room. Multi-level, the winery utilizes gravity flow in all aspects of the winemaking process. Gravity flow allows the winemaker to handle the fruit in the gentlest way possible, without pumping, from the de-stemmer at the top level, into the tanks, and ultimately into the barrel.

Our focus is on 100 percent estate grown fruit and sustainable farming. The estate vineyard sits amidst the beautiful 2000-acre ranch. The vineyard was established by the previous owner in 1996 and has since been expanded to its present 281 acres. The vines occupy the steepest, most south-facing slopes on the property, which reach an elevation of 1,800 feet and provide excellent water drainage and sun exposure. These slopes are also rich in limestone, a feature of many of the world’s finest vineyards.

Three special tours which showcase the stunning Halter Ranch property are available by reservation. The Winery and Cave Tour, Barrel Tasting Tour and the award-winning three-hour Excursion Tour which circumnavigates the property and includes a private tasting.

Guests can also visit the beautiful new Halter Ranch Tasting Room which was opened in February 2016 and is located adjacent to the winery. The building sits between blocks of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Grenache. Floor to ceiling windows in the central tasting room provide panoramic views of the property.

Take a tour or just sit back and relax in the tasting room and enjoy wine by the glass or bottle. A selection of deli items, nonalcoholic beverages and merchandise are also available for purchase. As of January 1, wine tasting fee is $20 per person, waived with two bottle purchase. Groups of 10 – 14: $20/pp non-refundable upon reservation, reservations required 24 hours in advance. Groups of 15 – 25: $25/pp non-refundable upon reservation, reservations required 24 hours in advance.

Hands down BEST wine experience in Paso. The Halter Ranch Excursion Tour is a MUST!! It's a lovely outing driving in the Defender learning about the history of the ranch and getting an intimate glimpse into the winemaking process from vine to bottle. There are a few tastings sprinkled throughout the tour with a formal tasting at the end! Be sure to opt for the cheese plate!
