Jada Vineyard in Paso Robles Promotes Nate Hall to Winemaker


January 16th – Paso Robles, CA – The Central Coast’s Jada Vineyard, located in the Willow Creek District of Paso Robles and now in its 24th year, has promoted Nate Hall to Winemaker.

Hall joined the Jada Vineyard team in 2017. A native of Sonoma County, he pursued a BS in Ecology & Systematic Biology with an emphasis in Marine Biology, graduating from Cal Poly in 2006. Hall conducted graduate research on marine fisheries and taught at Cal Poly for several years.

Intrigued by the Paso Robles wine scene, Hall took a harvest job at Sextant in 2013.  From there, Hall assumed the role of Assistant Winemaker at Kukkula from 2015 to 2017. Later in 2017, Hall was offered the Assistant Winemaker position at Jada Vineyard. Since then, Hall has also led Jada’s pursuit of their organic certification with CCOF, which the estate vineyard received in 2023, and was instrumental in the winery’s sustainable certification under the California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance (CSWA) program.

 “It’s a privilege to work with such a dynamic, beautiful site. Over the last six years, I’ve grown really attached to this land. I’m proud of the wines we’ve made and am excited to keep learning from and interpreting this site,” says Hall.

Focusing their efforts on growing and producing Rhone- and Bordeaux-inspired varietal wines of terroir, Jada Vineyard is consistently recognized as one of Willow Creek’s emblematic producers, with estate offerings having placed in wine critic Jeb Dunnuck’s Top 100 wines in 2021, 2022 and 2023, among other numerous accolades.

 “I’ve always been impressed with Nate’s measured and thoughtful approach to winemaking. He has a keen understanding of this singular site and I’m looking forward to tasting the wines that he and his team produce from our fruit,” says Anthony Riboli, 4th Generation Winemaker for Riboli Family Wines.

Located just 17 miles from the nearby Pacific Ocean, Jada Vineyard was established in 1999 when fields of golden barley were planted over to grapevines by the Messinas, second-generation Italian immigrants from Brooklyn, NY who traveled to Paso Robles as one of the pioneering families of the Westside. Today, the Riboli Family, from Piedmont, Italy, continues this pioneering tradition and ambition to produce only the best organically farmed, estate wines.
