A brief history

Just off Highway 46 on Oakdale Road in Paso Robles, our LEED Gold Certified tasting room and sustainable landscape offers an outdoor oasis to try our award-winning blends, and single varietals crafted in limited quantities by our winemaker, Curtis Hascall. We are a pet-friendly facility.
Shale Oak was built by a highly-esteemed team dedicated to sustainability, eco-friendly principles, and environmental preservation.
Shale Oak’s owner, Al Good, is a holistic, entrepreneurial farmer. His knowledge of the wine industry, vineyard management, and wine spans over 30 years.
Born and raised in Virginia, Al began his career as an East Coast representative for a grower in the San Joaquin Valley, where he quickly became their number one salesperson. His next endeavors found him as a fruit broker in Salinas for a company he later bought. After a brief stint at growing and selling apples in the Northwest, he decided to turn his passions to the business of table grapes, where he currently has one of the largest export table grape companies in the nation.
Al has consistently built trustworthy companies turning out the highest quality products possible. He developed a holistic understanding of the agriculture business and is considered a steward of the land.
Al is passionate about farming sustainability practices. His goal was to plan, plant, and build a vineyard, winery, and tasting room with next to zero impact on the surrounding environment. The result is Shale Oak Winery, a LEED Gold, SIP certified winery he began in Paso Robles in 2008 dedicated to making the best wines along the central coast of California.
Al and his wife Suzette, along with their two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, are excited to be part of the Paso Robles wine community and can be seen on many weekends welcoming guests into the tasting room.
