  • About
    Ray and Pam Derby retired to the Central Coast in the early 1990’s, and began to grow and sell grapes from their 3 Estate Vineyards in San Luis Obispo County. After a few years as a grape grower, Ray saw the potential of having fruit in 3 different AVA’s and set out to build an Estate brand that showcased the diversity of terroir on the Central Coast...SO DERBY WINE ESTATES WAS BORN.

    The Derby's then bought the historic Almond Growers Building in Paso Robles in 2010. 4 years later we celebrated the grand opening of Derby Wine Estates’ Production Facility and Tasting Room in this iconic landmark. Each year we take about 30 acres of fruit from the vineyards to produce our Estate wines, and sell the rest (over 400 acres) to other local wineries. Today, we are open for wine tasting every day from 11am-5pm, and offer tours of the building by Reservation.
