Meet the Winemaker: Victor Hugo Roberts

  • Pamplemousse Reading

We are very excited to have Vic join us to pour his beautiful wines and sign bottles for you!  This will be a memorable night of beautiful wines!

Victor Hugo Vineyards and Winery is one of Paso Robles' most exciting and innovative wineries. Victor Hugo Roberts is the owner/ winemaker of the small family operated vineyard and winery. The family legend has it that he was named after a great uncle and a great grandfather, with no reference to any literary connection!

The winery, started in 1985 in Paso Robles by Vic and his wife Leslie, is located in a picturesque, recently renovated 100 year old barn. Currently they have  78 acres planted to Chardonnay, Zinfandel, Syrah, Petite Sirah, Viognier and 5 Bordeaux reds - Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec, and Petit Verdot.

The Victor Hugo winery estate vineyard is located in the Templeton Gap with warm days, breezy afternoons, and cool nighttime temperatures. Planted on the rugged, shale hillsides of the property the vineyard receives meticulous care including vertical shoot positioning, shoot thinning, cluster thinning, and leaf pulling. The vines are grafted on four different root stocks (phyllexora and nematode resistant) specifically selected for drought tolerance, which allows the use of mild deficit irrigation to concentrate flavors and further improve quality.

Production is limited to retain outstanding quality and detail in all aspects of the process. Our vineyard and winery is committed to sustainable farming practices in all aspects of our vineyard and winery. Victor Hugo is a small family owned and operated winery specializing in small hand crafted lots of wine with intense colors and flavors. The winery is dedicated to producing elegant, rich wines exhibiting excellent longevity.

Run For the Roses!

  • Pamplemousse Reading

Ah, rosé. The nectar of summer. There are so many things we love about it, starting with the gorgeous pale pink color and the way a bottle of rosé inspires the best, laid-back, happy summer vibes. A bottle of rosé can instantly transport you to another place, and we really think it can elevate any experience. The perfect rosé is young, crisp, dry, and pairs well with all foods at all times.  Come celebrate the season, drink pink!
