The Region: Paso Robles is located approximately halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco in the northern part of San Luis Obispo County. Twenty five miles inland, its warm climate is due to the Santa Lucia Mountains that block most of the cooling Pacific influence during the day. The Templeton Gap is a saddle in the range that channels the moderating, late evening breezes across the region.
The appellation of Paso Robles is geologically diverse. Numerous different soil types and elevation changes together with diverse valleys and canyons make for varied micro climates and sites which allow for high quality production of a diversity of varietals, notably reds. The Central Coast has been the fastest growing wine producing region in California and wine grapes have become San Luis Obispo County’s most lucrative agricultural crop.
The Vineyards: Vina Robles sources its grapes from three estate vineyards. Vina Robles has the advantage of being
able to select its fruit from the best blocks of these vineyards, which are managed by Viticultural Management Inc., our dedicated viticultural services company. Chardonnay comes from the renowned cool climate Edna Valley in Southern San Luis Obispo County. Cutting edge technology, together with years of agricultural experience, are employed to produce fruit to our exact
requirements. Vina Robles practices Integrated Pest Management. Our vines are computer tracked via bar codes so data can be tracked and analyzed. Irrigation is
monitored using state of the art technology, including soil pressure sensors. We believe that the continuing and detailed collection of data will be of great benefit. A variety of rootstocks and clones were selected to best fit our growing conditions. The Vina Robles label only requires a small amount of the vineyards’ current production. Despite our use of technology to manage these vineyards, some things are still done by hand. Fruit used for the program is picked by hand, and pruning which varies enormously according to the needs of each variety and its location in the vineyards, is done manually. Yields generally average a little over three tons per acre.
Combined European and American viticultural experience and sensitive experimentation such as radically reduced vine spacing, are yielding exciting results, and as the vines begin to mature, the quality of the fruit continues to improve. In the spirit of experimentation small plantings of Tannat, Tempranillo and Touriga Nacional have taken place.
