Terry Hoage Vineyards is a 100% organically farmed estate in Westside Paso Robles, focusing exclusively on the production of Rhone varietals. Winemakers Terry and Jennifer Hoage gained their winemaking knowledge from Justin Smith of Saxum Vineyards, who made wines for Terry Hoage Vineyards in 2002 and 2003, and oversaw the winemaking process in 2004. The next year, Terry and Jennifer created their 2005 vintage, continuing in their minimalist philosophy of winemaking.
Using 100% French oak, the Hoages craft their wines without racking, fining or filtering. The only time the wines are moved is during the bottling process. Their unique approach to winemaking has Robert Parker saying: “This is the kind of wine the Central Coast should be producing more.”
