Grand Hotel Fall Wine Weekend

This year, Grand Hotel celebrates its annual Fall Wine Weekend with JUSTIN Vineyards & Winery. Check out their story below!

Located in Paso Robles, California, JUSTIN Vineyards & Winery was founded in 1981 by Justin Baldwin and is known for crafting world class wines using Bordeaux grape varieties. Widely recognized for their iconic ISOSCELES Bordeaux blend, the wine that arguably put Paso Robles luxury winemaking on the map, JUSTIN is also known for Cabernet Sauvignon.  The property at JUSTIN features a tasting room, luxury suite accommodations and a restaurant – making it the only winery on the Central Coast to offer all three options. In addition to its stellar hospitality offerings, JUSTIN consistently receives top honors and awards around the world as a leader in luxury Bordeaux variety winemaking. One of JUSTIN’s greatest accolades came in 2000 when the Wine Spectator ranked the 1997 ISOSCELES the 6th-best wine in the world in their annual ranking of the top 100 wines. JUSTIN wines are available through discerning fine wine retailers and restaurants throughout the United States, or directly from the winery via JUSTIN’s tasting room, on-line store or to members of the exclusive JUSTIN Wine Society wine club.

For those who will be joining us, you can look forward to special tasting sessions and receptions hosted by JUSTIN. We look forward to seeing you!
