Robert Hall is one of those wineries that not too many people talk about - unless you've tasted the wines. The winery was established in 2001 and named after its founder, who unfortunately passed away a few years ago. Don Brady was the winery's first winemaker, and he is still making great wines here.

Grapes were first planted at this location in the late 18th century. A century later, an Indiana settler named Andrew York arrived and York Mountain Winery was born. Robert Hall purchased the property in 1999, and increased the size to 135 acres. It took him two years to build his winery and plant the new vineyards.

Paso Robles wines now compete for attention in every category except price. Sunset Magazine even crowned it "The Best Wine Region in the West" in 2016. Rather high praise, considering the competition. But competition never fazed Robert Hall.

Today the winery is better than ever and still making wines as good as anyone anywhere. Our selection is proof positive of that, especially considering that skeptics didn't think Merlot would thrive in this area.

Don't tell that to Don Brady, as he is crafting some of the best Merlot in the state. Ours is loaded and lovely, laden with mouthwatering black and pink fruits, and punctuated with spice and caramel.

With 13% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Cabernet Franc, our selection carries plenty of punch and power and will reward the patient with years of satisfaction.
