April 29th is the 150th Arbor Day, and Vina Robles Vineyards & Winery is celebrating and inviting wine lovers nationwide to do the same.
Join the Paso Robles estate in combating deforestation globally simply by opening a bottle of The Arborist. This innovative Syrah-based blend is a consistent critic favorite and Wine Enthusiast Editors’ Choice, yet retails for just $20. The blackberry and bramble scented cuvée is an homage to creative blends from Paso Robles and presents bright, fruit-forward flavors accented by spice and a luscious, silken texture on the palate.
The Arborist is dedicated to Vina Robles’ founder Hans Nef and named for the arborist who saved the life of the iconic 300+ year-old oak tree featured on the label. Mr. Nef’s admiration and respect for the native flora of California’s Central Coast led to saving the legacy oak in 2014, which has made a full recovery and stands high among the vines today.
Together with One Tree Planted and the Arbor Day Foundation, the multi-generational winery has planted over 21,000 trees as part of its ongoing commitment to sustainability in Paso Robles and beyond. Since 2014, Vina Robles has planted a tree with a portion of the proceeds of every bottle sold of The Arborist Red Blend – a commitment the family-owned winery plans to continue in perpetuity.
Vina Robles and the Nef family are excited to announce the appointment of wine industry veteran Kurt Ammann as CEO of the family-owned winery.
“Vina Robles has a long history in the Paso Robles community, and I am humbled to have been selected to lead the 100% estate vineyard and winery operation into the next 25 years,” shares Ammann. “It’s both an honor and exciting to be a part of a team that is completely committed to sustainability and socially responsible business practices. I’m looking forward to continuing the upward trajectory of Vina Robles as a nationally and internationally recognized benchmark in Paso Robles.”
Ammann joined the Vina Robles team in February, 2022, bringing with him a rich history in the California wine and agriculture industry.
Vina Robles is known for producing a full spectrum of wines from everyday bottles to collectible, single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignons. Ammann believes Vina Robles wines are distinct in that they combine incredible value on the dollar while simultaneously expressing their range of terroir.
“Over 25 years of farming in Paso Robles, the team has honed in on the specific sites on each of our vineyards that let the magic of ‘place’ shine through,” says Ammann. “Being 100% estate, we are able to control the entire process from planting to the final product in your glass, resulting in wines of superior quality and consistency while keeping the prices very reasonable.”
