A history of hard work
– Robert Hall winery began with the vision of one man and has since become one of the most widely recognized and beloved wineries in Paso Robles wine country. Founder Robert Hall was a self-made businessman originally from St. Paul, Minnesota, who started and grew a broad range of businesses throughout his life. Hall says he always had a life-long passion for wine and the winery lifestyle. His success in business afforded him the ability to venture out west in search of the perfect landscape, and the perfect partner to help him realize his winemaking dream. Enter winemaker: Don Brady.
Working hand in hand with Hall, Brady’s skill and devotion to Paso Robles was instrumental to elevating the valley’s status as a premier winemaking region, and even helped establish the region as a distinct AVA in 1983. Since then, Robert Hall wines have earned countless awards and global recognition.
Indeed, the winery and the success of the region, are due to the dedication, vision, and hard work of men like Hall and Brady, which no doubt inspired the slogan for Robert Hall wines, “The Good Life. Well-Earned.” Hall and Brady continue to craft wines worthy of toasting to that motto.
