//Herman Story Wines

Russell P. From began Herman Story Wines in 2001 with 7 barrels stashed in his employer’s cellar. What started as a modest homage to his rancher grandfather has become a beacon to those seeking opulent, structured Syrah and Grenache. To maintain balance while giving flavor full stage, Russell works with 30 top-tier vineyards in 7+ distinct growing regions between Santa Barbara and Paso Robles. Vineyards of particular note include: Bien Nacido, Chelle Mountain, John Sebastiano, Larner, Presqui’le and White Hawk. From’s dedication has held the attention of discriminating consumers and reviewers alike, earning him a coveted position in Wine Spectator’s Top 100 List in 2014 for his On the Road Grenache and and average 90+ score on CellarTracker across all wines and vintages.

//Desparada Wines

Desparda began when Vailia Esh arrived in Paso Robles. Esh was living in a 1977 Royal International trailer on a vineyard with not much more than a crazy dog and a few changes of clothes. Before landing Esh was managing a small wine import and distribution company as well as overseeing the production of a few wines that we sold. The work had grown routine and Esh needed new air. Under the pretense of getting closer to fruit sources, Esh packed her truck and left the city. A few days later she had her toes embedded in alluvial soil. Standing there, the soft horizon opening in the distance, Esh was overwhelmed with adventure. Just a stranger in a strange land, full of wonder and anticipation, and itchy to begin.
