Dick and Pam Niner purchased Heart Hill with the intention to plant vines and build a winery and tasting room. Of the 58 plant-able acres on the property, 20 were planted in the spring of 2007. Varietals include Grenache blanc, along with some of the varieties they have at Bootjack Ranch, including Syrah, Malbec, Petite Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Plans are in the works to build a state-of-the-art winery, and an inviting tasting room including a demonstration kitchen for visiting chefs, a private wine club lounge and patio facilities. An exact completion date is difficult to predict, but a grand opening is tentatively planned for harvest, 2009.

The Niner family first purchased Bootjack Ranch in 1999. It is currently comprised of 125 planted acres. Varietals include Sauvignon Blanc, Barbera, Sangiovese, Syrah, Merlot, Petite Sirah, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Additionally, there are smaller blocks of blenders Malbec, Carmenère, and Petit Verdot.

In addition to winegrapes, Smoot and Niner vineyard manager Jerry Grant have planted a grove of about 50 olive trees. They plan to add another two acres (about 200 more trees) next year. Just as grapes thrive in the Mediterranean-like climate, so do olive trees. The trees add a beautiful element to the landscape, and Dick and Pam intend to eventually press the olives to make their own Niner olive oil.

parents signed up for Niner's wine club and got to try their Sangiovese...very impressive. after reading about the winery on line and through the information provided through the wine club, my husband and i did a drive by of their new construction site at their property called heart hill on the west side...even more impressive. website says winery will be open fall 2009 and we are looking forward to it!

FYI - couldn't select a rating for amenities, comfort and cleanliness as they are not open yet...however i would expect it will be really nice.

I ordered a few bottles of Niner Wine Estates wine on-line after being encouraged to do so by a friend and was pleasantly surprised at how enjoyable their wines are. I'm really looking forward to the grand opening of their tasting room and will definitely check it out the next time I am in Paso Robles.
