Alta Colina Winery & Vineyard
Welcome from the Tillman family! Alta Colina is all about organically-farmed Rhone wines and the Trailer Pond is among the best ways to enjoy this magical property.
Bob Tillman spent 25 years as an engineer by day, home winemaker by night. Armed with the dream of growing world-class grapes he made his passion for winemaking official with the purchase of the 130-acre property in west Paso Robles in 2003. That property is now Alta Colina Vineyard & Winery and the home of the Trailer Pond. This hard-working, family-owned-and-operated Winery is a reflection of Bob’s love of natural beauty and the craft of winegrowing.
Since planting the first vine on the property almost 20 years ago, Alta Colina Vineyard & Winery has become known for stellar wines, a small but mighty team, and wonderful experiences from Tasting Room Flights to Summit Vineyard Tastings to camping stays at the Trailer Pond. What started as a blank slate, Alta Colina now consists of a 31-acre estate Vineyard, estate Winery facility, Vineyard barn, vintage trailer campground, and more. The Alta Colina family’s dedication to producing exceptional Rhone wines and offering guests a top notch experience has made Alta Colina a Paso Wine Country favorite.
The Trailer Pond
The Trailer Pond began with a combined vision to offer guests a unique and unforgettable camping experience in a vintage trailer in the middle of a beautiful, organically grown vineyard. The Trailer Pond allows our family owned small businesses a chance to share their piece of the American dream while providing guests a one of a kind wine+camping experience.
Alta Colina’s gorgeous views of the surrounding rolling hills, relaxing pond, and exceptional wines made it the perfect location. Bob and Maggie’s fun loving demeanor and hard work ethic, paired with their excitement to offer visitors the chance to stay onsite at a working vineyard made them the perfect partners.
Melissa Swanson is Camp Coordinator for The Trailer Pond as well as Director of Hospitality at Alta Colina Winery. In the beginning of January 2022, she celebrated 6 years of creating memories and sharing Alta Colina wines along side the Tillman Family.
The Trailer Pond was built with a lot of love and we are so excited to have you join our adventure! On behalf of Alta Colina Winery we are so happy to have you camp with us and hope you enjoy your stay!
