1987 was an important year for a winemaker named Tobin (Toby) James. Six tons of grapes that a winery could not process needed “a home.” Tobin, an assistant winemaker at the time, asked the owner of the winery if he could have the grapes and make the wine for himself. The owner replied, "Sure kid, knock yourself out." A year and a half later, gold medals began pouring in for Toby's first Zinfandel, the 1987 "Blue Moon." After making his wines at another local winery for a few years, and tasting and selling them out of a wine shop in town, Toby scraped together a down payment on a scruffy but historic piece of land out on Hwy 46. He built Tobin James Cellars on the site of a stagecoach stop, opening the small winery and tasting room in 1994. Not wanting to build the typical tasting room, Toby fashioned it as an old West saloon, because that’s where he felt at home. Nothing has really changed much; wine lovers are still treated like they are coming home when they step up to the grand 1860’s Brunswick mahogany bar. Lance and Claire Silver met Toby in 1996 to talk about Paso Robles. Even though there were only about 18 wineries, they just knew that Paso was a special place for making wines. By the end of the meeting, Toby, Lance and Claire decided to become equal business partners. For over 20 years it has been a fantastic relationship, with each partner contributing to making greater and greater wines. Stop by and enjoy their hospitality and spectacular wines.
