The Essence of Paso Robles

Robert Hall Winery is situated in the Paso Robles appellation. Paso Robles is located 20 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean, literally halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco. We are in the center of the Central Coast wine region which spans from Monterey County in the north to Santa Barbara County in the south. The climate and diverse Hall Ranch vineyard soils provide optimal growing conditions for warm region varietals, especially our late season reds. 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 that allow ourreds to reach optimal maturity, yielding full bodied-- intense color red wines with incredible phenolic structure.

About J. Rickards Vineyards & Winery

We are a family-run operation of both wine grape farming and wine production, located at the northern end of the Alexander Valley in Sonoma County. Owned and operated by Jim and Eliza Rickards, the Vineyards have been planted over the past four decades, augmenting the original 1908 Zinfandel vines. We are proudly celebrating the 20th Anniversary of our Darn Fine Brown Barn, built in 1997 by our good friend Ron Marley. It has since evolved from housing tractors to become our rustic tasting room overlooking the valley. Come on up for a visit and a walk through the Old Vine Zinfandel block or our innovative Wine Cave.

ABOUT ODONATA WINES
Odonata Wines is a small family winery owned and operated by Denis Hoey. Denis is also the winemaker.

 Denis, a native of Sacramento, grew up in a family that appreciated wines and exposed him to a wide range of quality wines that helped develop his palate. In 2004 he graduated from the University of California, Santa Cruz with a degree in Business Management and soon after met Jeff Emery, owner and winemaker at Santa Cruz Mountain Vineyard. Their relationship quickly turned into an Old World apprenticeship for Denis, and he became the production manager for SCMV before starting Odonata Wines in Santa Cruz 2005.
    
He learned many of his cellar practices at Bison Organic Brewery in Berkeley working with a much more perishable product. This taught him the importance of giving careful attention to spoilage organisms. His continuing education involves following current trends in winemaking research from the major universities. He has traveled to Italy and France on several occasions to gain a broader perspective about European winemaking techniques and varietal fidelity. He maintains a sharp palate for quality and the nuances of wines by tasting, tasting, and more tasting. He continues to challenge himself to make better wine by learning from what others are doing well--or not so well!

Steele Winery - Making Our Wines
At Steele Wines we have a minimalist winemaking style in that we use standard, non-GMO yeasts, natural fermentations, no extra additives or enzymes. We use a gentle pumpover during fermentations, inert gas to move the finished wines, and use gravity flow rather than pumping as much as possible. The use of gentle pumping and gravity flow decreases the chance of bruising the wine during cellar movement and is important to keeping fresh aromas and flavors in our wines. From hand-picked grapes to gentle processing and our own bottling facility we know how our grapes are cared for from vineyard to bottle. We believe a lighter hand in the winemaking will highlight the aromas and the flavors of the quality fruit we source.

We source fruit from as far away as Santa Barbara County to Washington State, to as close as next door, to give our customers a quality product they can enjoy every day without paying ‘quality prices’. After the grapes are harvested they are kept in their individual vineyard lots until blending time, which is just before bottling so that integrity of each vineyard shows through in the wines. The fruit we source for the Steele label is the same as Shooting Star. The Shooting Star wines are more appellation blends and off- the - wall varietals that are fermented in stainless or aged in oak for a shorter period of time to ensure bright, fruit forward wines that are meant to be enjoyed while young. The Steele label wines are single vineyard designates or specific vineyard blends that age in oak for a longer period of time and are meant to drink soon or will hold up for 8-10 years of proper cellaring or longer.
