  1. Humble Beginnings - Hoffman Mountain Ranch


    Dr. Stanley Hoffman planted the first Pinot Noir in the craggy hillside terrain of what is now the HMR Vineyard in Paso Robles' Adelaida District. Dr. Hofffman planted some of the regions first Cabernet Sauvignon vines and continued in 1973 to plant Chardonnay in the HMR Vineyard.

  2. Hilltop Ranch


    In the early-70's, Don Van Steenwyk hungered to return to his farm boy roots and with his wife, Elizabeth, purchased the idyllic Hilltop Ranch in Paso Robles. After years in Southern California, Don and Elizabeth found a location that filled their souls. They loved the clean air, the peacefulness, and the natural beauty of the area. Appropriately named, Hilltop Ranch is the highest point in the region at 2,320 feet above sea level and the 500 acres are filled with walnuts and almonds.

    Initially, the Van Steenwyks bought Hilltop Ranch as a family getaway. They had no intention of making wine. But in 1973, Hilltop’s neighbors, the Hoffman’s of Hoffman Mountain Ranch (HMR), began to receive accolades for their wines. Around that time, the farm bureau suggested the Van Steenwyks consider another crop for their land—and a vision was born!
