Robert Hall Winery is situated in the Paso Robles appellation, located about 20 miles inland of the Pacific Ocean and in the center of the Central Coast wine region. Realizing that the climate and diverse soils provided optimal growing conditions for warm region grape varietals, Robert Hall founded the winery in 1999 with his wife Margaret. Hot days end with coastal breezes that flow over the Santa Lucia Mountain Range to cool the vineyards in the evenings, delivering near perfect growing conditions for his grapes. Hall grew his winery to become the fifth largest in the region, winning numerous accolades including Golden State Winery of the Year in 2010 at the California State Fair, the most highly awarded winery at the competition, and going on the become Central Coast Winery of the Year and Paso Robles Winery of the year in 2016 and 2017, respectively.

The Robert Hall Chardonnay features pear, apple, and peach aromas with a suggestion of vanilla spice. Rich from barrel fermentation and aging, this wine shows peach and pear flavors with hints of butterscotch. The wine is soft, medium-bodied with balancing acidity and toasty oak that lengthens the finish.

planting grapes in Sonoma in the ’80s and his vineyards are unexpected and diverse. The diversity offers the winemakers of Matrix the gift to hand-select grapes from the estate vineyards – block by block and sometimes even row by row. The breadth of the Matrix estate fruit—from the foggy beds of the Russian River Valley, to the mountainous edges of Dry Creek Valley—gives their winemaker an incredible selection of grapes. With a focus on labor-intensive, hands on farming practices, they produce low-yield vineyards that result in grapes marked by astounding concentrations of flavors— thus creating wines that are powerful yet elegant.

Winemaker Diane Wilson has been a force to be reckoned with in the wine industry winning hundreds of medals and awards for her fantastic wines at Wilson Winery, deLorimier Winery, and now Matrix Winery. Her talented daughter, Victoria, recently joined the family business to help her mother produce her award-winning wines with her own brand of youthful energy. The mother and daughter winemaking team ensures that Matrix will be a meld of tradition and innovation.

Matrix Winery Zinfandel features dark plush aromas of vine-ripened blackberry merge with hints of spicy black pepper, cardamom and orange peel. Opulent deep flavors envelop the palate with ripe boysenberry, dark plum and blackberry. Laced among the luscious fruit are threads of toasty oak, creamy coffee and vanilla with a touch of eucalyptus in the long, broad finish.
