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.

Tasting Notes:
The 2019 Theresa is a wine of great purity, showcasing lemon curd, flint, honeydew melon, and kiwi aromas. The palate is full of butterscotch, toasted brioche, yuzu and mint flavors that evolve into a round, yet incredibly precise finish. Pair it with white fish or freshly shucked oysters.

93 Points - Vinous:
"Hazy, green-tinged straw. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes fresh fig, tangerine, pear nectar, jasmine and smoky minerals. Concentrated and juicy in style, offering an array of orchard and citrus fruit flavors that smoothly blend depth and delicacy. Displays impressive finishing energy and length, leaving hints of fennel and candied orange zest behind.
One of the area’s iconic wineries, Denner sources all their fruit from their own 130-acre vineyard, which was first planted in 1999 and sits in the heart of the prime Willow Creek District. The wines here, made by Anthony Yount, have steadily becoming more refined over the last decade. I count them among the very best in California. The 2019 collection showcases depth as well as vivacity. I was especially impressed by the well-integrated tannins of these wines. That trait makes the wines deceptively approachable (if there is such a thing) while providing ample structure for aging. Yount has a talent for blending, and it shows clearly here. These are some of the most impressive wines from Paso Robles that I tried this year." -Josh Raynolds (Nov 2021)
