Halter Ranch Winery, Tasting Room and Wine Caves - Paso Robles Architecture Winery Photographer

J.W. Design & Construction works exclusively with Studio 101 West Photography to photograph all their projects. Probably one of our favorite projects to date is Halter Ranch Winery, located in the heart of the Paso Robles' Westside Adelaida District. This 900 acre ranch boasts 280 acres of vineyards in California’s Central Coast Wine Country. The best part for us is that we get to "artfully" capture the entire process for J.W Design & Construction. It is very important for them to have record of the construction phases as well as the final product. They use our photography for their website, marketing material, proposals for new work, and submissions for awards. It is no wonder they are one of the biggest and sought after builders on the Central Coast. They understand the value of having their quality work captured with quality photography. This valuable process and the superior quality of their work keeps them in the forefront of the construction industry.

The first thing you see when entering Halter Ranch is the original farm house built in 1885. It was restored and expanded in 2000 by J.W. Design & Construction.

Building the roof, both exterior and interior was a true work of art by true craftsmen.

Every stone used in the walls was harvested on site and meticulously shaped and placed by hand.

I love the artistic attention to detail the architect kept even on the out buildings and barns.

An aerial drone shot was the best way to show all the new buildings in one photo.

This drone photo shows the new tasting room with the 6 year old winery in the background. Made from the same materials you can see the drastic difference that a few years has made.
