    Halter Ranch is a vineyard and winery located in Paso Robles on California’s Central Coast. It is protected from the ocean by the Santa Lucia Mountain Range. Halter Ranch has a rich history combined with a commitment to quality, science-driven sustainable methods, and environmental stewardship.

    Hansjörg Wyss purchased the original property in 2000, renovated the 19th-century Victorian farmhouse and enlarged the vineyard. The estate spans over 2000-acres, with 281-acres of SIP (Sustainability in Practice) Certified wine grapes, 15-acres of walnuts, and 10-acres of olives.

    Halter Ranch produces sustainably certified 100% estate-grown Rhône and Bordeaux-style wines. Primary wines produced are a Grenache Blanc, Grenache-based Rosé, CDP (a Rhône style GSM), Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and the flagship Estate Reserve, Ancestor.
