Alta Colina

Every Alta Colina wine is estate grown and produced by Bob and Maggie Tillman. That means they personally grow every grape and vinify every bottle. You will be drinking a pure expression of their vineyard’s soil, weather, varietal clones, rootstocks, and site. Winemaking practices are aimed at delivering that pure fruit expression directly to you with minimum intervention. They grow 4 white Rhone Varieties: Viognier, Roussanne (2 clones), Marsanne, and Grenache Blanc. They also grow 4 varieties of red grapes, again all Rhones: Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre, and Petit Sirah. The situation at Alta Colina is a bit more complex as they have 4 clones of Syrah and 2 of Grenache. All clones are vinified separately and (potentially) blended together after up to a year of aging. They sell a portion of our grapes to Paso Robles’ best wineries. The remainder is utilized in the Alta Colina program. The winery's hope is that the personal dedication and investment is apparent as you taste all of the Alta Colina wines.
