Newlin Hastings is the founder of Hastings Enterprises, a commercial real estate company that merged with Pacifica Commercial Realty in 2008. Founded in 1989 and based in Paso Robles, Hastings Enterprises helped to shape the character of Paso Robles through its industrial brokerage services and retail and public development projects including the Granary, the historic Train Depot, the Food 4 Less Center and, most recently, the Gateway Center at First and Spring Streets. With a sincere interest in community, sports, redevelopment of historic structures, economic development and the nurturing of new and innovative commercial real estate projects, Newlin remains vitally involved in the Paso Robles community and the greater Central Coast region. Hastings Enterprises and Pacifica have represented many of the finest wineries in the Central Coast.
Newlin has been custom-farming seven varietals of premium wine grapes, creating close relationships with the wineries and winemakers. He has sold his grapes to Justin, Anglim, Thacher, Peachy Canyon, Tobin James, Chamisal and Asuncion Ridge wineries. He planted his vineyard in the Adelaida District, in the west side of the Paso Robles AVA, in 1997.
