Our wines are a timeless marriage of history and innovation, and there’s no better way to explore them than by visiting one of our unique tasting room experiences. Soak in panoramic ocean views at our San Simeon tasting room, or discover the true potential of sustainable agriculture at our Paso Robles estate vineyard.
Club members and friends of the winery are invited to join us in celebrating award-winning wines, breathtaking locations, and worthy causes. From behind-the-scenes tours through the world’s premier wine regions to intimate evenings at our own vineyard property—each of our events is an unforgettable experience that celebrates excellence in winemaking.
The eastern Paso Robles meso-climate of Saunders Vineyard is the perfect environment for growing Syrah, Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Malbec, Merlot and Tempranillo grapes. Winemaker, Soren Christensen, carefully crafts these wines with a focus on quality and sustainability.
Gain exclusive access to the best that Hearst Ranch Winery has to offer. In addition to priority access to our ocean-front member's exclusive patio in San Simeon, all of our club membership tiers include a host of extra benefits — from exclusive wine offerings and discounts, to special club member parties and complimentary tastings at both tasting room locations.
Founded in 2010 by friends, Jim Saunders and Steve Hearst, Hearst Ranch Winery is a premium producer of wines from their estate Paso Robles vineyard. The Saunders and Hearst families are stewards of the land, passionate about the quality of wines crafted, and committed to sharing their rich legacy with the next generation.
Exceptional wine deserves an exceptional view. La Hacienda historical adobe and Saunders Vineyard Villa are steps away from Hearst Ranch Winery with gorgeous vistas of rolling hills dotted with oak trees, neatly ordered vineyards, and the natural beauty of the Salinas River.
