Winery of the Month – August 2015

Hearthstone Vineyard & Winery

We are proud to be partnering with Hearthstone Vineyard & Winery during the month of August as our Winery of the Month. Everyday during the month at our Guest Wine Tasting Reception, we will be featuring tastes of their amazing varietals. Each Friday during the month, we will feature their winemaker or winery representative at our Guest Reception. At our restaurant, be sure to order a glass of one of their delicious wines to pair with our local cuisine. Or join us for our Backyard Winemaker Dinner on Friday, August 28th at 6pm featuring Hearthstone wines paired with a five-course handcrafted menu.

Hearthstone Vineyard & Winery was established in 1999 when Hoy Buell, a Cal Poly graduate and horticulturist for 32 years, combined his planting and growing expertise with his love for fine wines. It was then that he first planted a parcel in the heart of majestic Adelaida, developing what is now Hearthstone Vineyard. The first vintage from Hearthstone débuted in 2003.

Sharing a passion for wine and their love of the Adelaida vineyard land, Hearthstone’s owner, Hoy Buell and winemaker Paul Ayers teamed up in 2007 with the common vision of designing and producing exceptional wines, and offering creative blends. Paul Ayers also enjoys the diversity and is able to control the nuances of many lots of wine each year, sometimes 15 or more separate small batches. By only working in small batches Paul is able to retain the subtle variation of flavors that each clone possess; resulting is in layered, complex, premium wines. Visit their tasting room which is open Thursday through Monday from 11am to 5pm in the Templeton Gap region of Paso Robles Wine Country.
