  • About
    AronHill Vineyards resides atop a steep limestone ridge in the heart of the Templeton Gap west of Paso Robles. Here, trailblazing grape grower Judy Aron cultivates eight acres of dry-farmed Primitivo and Cabernet Sauvignon, producing award winning small-lot wines of natural purity and structure.

    Judy and her daughter Kathryn personally welcome you to their tasting room, which they consider an extension of their home. In addition to sampling limited releases, you can also enjoy a bite on the patio of the AronHill Bistro, all while savoring the sweeping hilltop views.
  • Vineyard Details
    • In the heart of the Templeton Gap AVA, our calcareous soils are comprised of limestone, rocky shale and clay. The steep southwest-facing block of Cabernet Sauvignon arcs downward into a flatland block of Primitivo. A separate block of Primitivo brackets the Cab Sauv along a narrow swath of land beneath a NW facing slope.
