Derby Wine Estates - Paso Robles

Gold Plus! selection - Gold Medal Special

Ray Derby thought he would be long retired by now. After following his father into the family business of manufacturing automobile parts, Ray became a successful businessman for many years and lived happily in Eastern Los Angeles with his wife Pam. That all changed in 1991 when Ray decided to retire and moved to the quaint town of Paso Robles. It wasn’t long before Ray decided to embrace the local wine culture, learn the art of viticulture, and put his retirement plan on hold. Ray was fascinated with the world of wine, and in 1998 purchased his first vineyard property in San Simeon that he named Derbyshire Vineyard. In 2001, they purchased their second vineyard site named Laura’s Vineyard, on Paso Robles’ east side, and in 2006 acquired their third and final vineyard on Paso Robles’ west side which they named Derby Vineyard. The Derbys gained serious recognition for their premium fruit and began selling grapes to prestigious wineries as far north as Napa Valley and as far south as Temecula. Ray realized the potential of his vineyards, and in 2005 hired winemaker Tiffinee Vierra to craft the first wines for Derby Wine Estates. The tiny winery has grown slowly and today remains focused on crafting distinctive blends and vineyard-designate wines from their estate vineyards. Ray and Pam Derby are thrilled with their little winery’s instant success and look forward to increasing their offerings to build an even stronger presence on the Central Coast.
