Robert Hall with his wife, Margaret, founded the winery in 1999 and grew it to become the fifth-largest in the Paso Robles region, winning numerous accolades including Golden State Winery of the Year by the California State Fair in 2010. Robert died two years ago and Margaret, who became sole owner after her husband’s death, sold the winery to O’Neil Vintners who she called “the perfect fit to take the winery to the next level.” Winemaking remains in the highly capable hands of Don Brady, one of whose personal wines we will pour today. Representing the winery will be Dan Alexander, regional sales manager.
