About the Winery:
Denner Vineyards is an estate on the far western border of the Paso Robles AVA. Founded by Ron Denner in 1999 after an exhaustive search throughout California. The 156-acre parcel presses up against the Santa Lucia Range, giving the site great diversity of elevation, aspect and soil. The estate is nestled into the Templeton Gap. Denner Vineyards currently uses 45 of the total 108 acres for their estate wine program. The remaining grapes are sold to ultra-premium producers in Paso Robles. Much of their fruit graces the wines of Villa Creek Cellars, Linne Calodo, and Justin Vineyards among others. Denner’s winemaking program is headed by Anthony Yount, a graduate of California Polytechnical University. He is amazingly talented and we are big fans of his wines.

Ratings & Reviews

93 Points - Vinous Media:
"Juicy peach, lemon oil and orange marmalade are supported with hints of flint and mineral notes. The palate is full-bodied, with flavors of nectarine, buttered brioche and honey. The rich, complex flavors are cut with a touch of tannin and bright acidity on the long fresh finish."

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"A touch cloudy in the glass, this bottling is tightly wound on the nose, offering aromas of lemon peel, chalk, riverstone and peach blossom. There is great tension to the zippy palate, where vibrant acidity delivers both a citrus tang and more rounded flavors of lychee and apple cider."
