Wine Tasting
Toast to 'the good life - well earned' at Robert Hall winery
 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 win- eries 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 busi- nesses 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 pre-
mier winemak-
ing region, and
even helped es-
tablish 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.
