The Highlands District is to the far east of the greater Paso Robles AVA. The topography is typified as old Plioceneā€“Pleistocene erosional surface across the Simmler, Monterey and Paso Robles formations below the La Panza Range. The elevations range 1,160 - 2,086 feet and represent some of the highest points in the greater AVA.

Soils are comprised of deep, sometimes cemented alluvial soils; old leached alkaline soils common, with younger sandy soils along active streams.
