Meaning "of the hills", Torrin Vineyard is aptly located in the hills of the Santa Lucias west of Paso Robles in an area commonly referred to as the Templeton Gap.

With ten acres planted on rugged hillsides of high lime calcareous shale and siliceous shale we are located in one of California's wine growing sweet spots. The vineyard is planted to multiple clones of Syrah and Grenache with small blocks of Mourvedre, Tannat, Alicante Bouschet and Cabernet Sauvignon. Read less
