  • About
    Alta Colina is all about the Vineyard. Owner Bob Tillman is a believer that great wine is grown, not made. With that ethos in mind, starting from the ground up was top priority and we now offer incredible wines and unique experiences to learn about our wines and estate Vineyard.

    In 2003, owner/winemaker Bob Tillman first walked the 130 acre property that would become Alta Colina Vineyard. After 35 years as an engineer by day, home winemaker by night, Alta Colina is his vision from ground to glass.

    Since our founding, Alta Colina has become known as both one of Paso Robles’ most beautiful Vineyards and one of the Central Coast’s most acclaimed Rhône producers. Bob, along with his daughter Maggie and the rest of our team, are committed to translating our incredible property into every bottle we make.

    Visit our tasting room or make a reservation to taste privately in the cellar or on Alta Colina Vineyard. We aim to provide an incredible experience for every guest and can't wait to share our incredible estate property with you.
