Checking out Halter Ranch Winery in Paso Robles...



In June, we had the delightful opportunity
to share a few days of fun, frolic, and wine tasting
with good friends...from left to right...
Lee and Diane
Donna and Jim
Su and Gary
and of course...the big guy!!


Great food...great fun...great wine!!!

Our most interesting tour was of the Halter Ranch Winery.
Yeah...well...color was great...really bright...
but somehow Black and White called out to me this time around!!!


The view from the tasting room...


The view as we began our tour...


The Halter Ranch logo...and observation walk for the 
wine making process!


I think you need an engineering degree to work these controls...


There's a lot of wine in these settling tanks!


...and then on to the oak barrels...




Halter Ranch has an extensive underground cave system...
perfect for aging wine...


...and imagining Rod Serling taking us into...


the Twilight Zone!

Do you hear him???

  13. Such a great group of photos! I'd hate to be the person in charge of keeping all that shiny equipment shiny. If I had to choose my favorite photo of group. I'd have to call it tie between the last two.
