Wine Ambassador (Tasting Room)
Derby Wine Estates
Derby Wine Estates; 525 Riverside Ave, Paso Robles, CA 93446
Three Vineyards. One Simple Mission. Make Great Wines…Without Pretense.
With three different geographically located vineyards spanning the diverse Paso Robles terroir, Derby Wine Estates produces small lot, hand crafted wines. With their first purchase of Derbyshire Vineyard in San Simeon, Ray and Pam Derby shifted their plans of retirement into plans of entering the wine world. Derby Vineyard in the Templeton Gap and Laura’s Vineyard on the 46E were soon to follow. After experiencing nearly a decade as grape growers, the potential strengths of each property became apparent, and in 2008, Ray and Pam launched Derby Wine Estates. Careful selection and attention to detail is now exemplified in every wine, in the rejuvenation of the Paso Robles tasting room, and in each employee who represents the company. Derby Wines Estates truly encompasses the rich history that is Paso Robles. We are open seven days a week, from 11am to 5pm.
