Paso Robles, California
Paul and Patty are both California natives who moved to the Central Coast to attend Cal Poly in the late seventies. Paul graduated with a degree in agriculture and Pat graduated from the child development program. Prior to running Still Waters Vineyards, Paul and Pat immersed themselves in several careers while managing to stay connected to their love of the land, whether planting large vegetable gardens or leading local 4-H groups. As amateur beer makers and with budding interest in wine making, the Hoovers began experimenting with their own small vineyard and eventually invested in a larger vineyard in 2003 which is now Still Waters Vineyards. Paul and Patty are constantly thinking of new ways to improve the winemaking and vineyard practices as well as the whole customer experience in the Tasting Room. Still Waters Vineyards is 65 acres growing 14 different varieties and is proud to be 100% solar powered and deeply invested in farming sustainability.
Paul served on the board for the Paso Robles Wine County Alliance from 2008-2013 and currently serves on the board for the San Luis Obispo County Agriculture Preserve Committee.Return to Producers Listing »
