Vina Robles is a pretty special winery– founded in the early 1990’s by Swiss businessman Hans Nef for the purpose of combining his Old World wine vision with the exciting possibilities that New World wine brings.
In building his winery, Vina Robles, he spared no expense, amassing six estate vineyards throughout Paso Robles that serve as the foundation for the red-wine dominant winery. It’s not just grape growing that is part of the winery’s vision. A big part of what they do is farming, growing and planting trees.
Paso Robles in the 1990’s might have seemed like a risky play- but as we’ve all seen time and time again, the winemakers who take the biggest risks usually reap the biggest rewards. Vina Robles is the perfect example.

Aromas of roasted black cherry, fig, caramel and milk chocolate make for a rich and gooey entry to the nose of this appellation blend. Lavish, creamy and smooth tannins frame the sip, where roasted plum, fig and raisin flavors are framed by a more rigid structure toward the finish.
