The historic house on the property used for Wine Club Events and hosting VIP guests
The charming bridge you go through to get to the Winery & Tasting Room set on the back of the property quite far back from the road.
The Wine making facilities and winery offices designed by Architect John Mitchell.
The Wine Club member’s lounge with amazing views of the wine making facilities. I love the lofty feel of this with the amazing bright light and homey atmosphere.
Touring the wine making facility with winemaker Justin Sass and General Manager Skylar Stuck
This is one of the coolest most modern wine making facilities I’ve ever toured. This is located on the second floor of the building so a gravity flow system is used loading the grapes from above to below ensuring the seeds don’t get crushed exposing tannins.
Views from the first floor of the wine making room into the wine club lounge (above on the 2nd floor)
Touring the barrel room. This is one of the cleanest barrel rooms I’ve seen. Notice there aren’t any red wine stains on the ground which is what you typically find.
A cool tasting area within the cellar.
The picturesque patio located behind the tasting room. This setting is so lovely and inviting I can see how you would finish a tasting and want to hang out here for hours. Apparently it’s quite a hot spot on the weekends so either make a reservation or come early so you can grab a table and relax.

The tasting room at Halter Ranch with spectacular vineyard views in the back drop
The line up of wines we enjoyed during the visit. Halter Ranch makes a huge selection of wines, currently 14 different varietals. As most Paso Robles Wineries do Halter Ranch focuses on Rhone Varietals and some additional non Rhone varietals including Cabernet Sauvignon and Rose. It was really hard to pick a favorite since I tried so many and they each had various elements I liked about them each.
The beautiful colored and delicious tasting Rose I enjoyed.
Thanks to the Halter Ranch team including winemaker Kevin Sass and General Manager Skylar Stuck for the guided tour and tasting during my recent visit.
