While we’ve appreciated this year’s rains, there was an adverse effect to the heavy storms. In February, the large oak that greeted guests on their way up to the hilltop came down during the storm with heavy rain and winds. 

Thankful that no one was injured, we called out an arborist who let us know the tree was around 400 years old.

We’re grateful that the rest of our oak trees are standing tall and strong. Not only are the oaks a beautiful symbol for Paso Robles, but they provide shelter and support for the vineyard’s ecosystem.
