Recommended length of visit: <1 hour
Owner description: What began in 2001 as a 7 barrel homage to winemaker/proprietor Russell P. From’s grandfather, has become a beacon to those seeking opulent, structured Syrah and Grenache. These are no nonsense, balls to the walls wines that are not for the faint of heart or the pinkie raising set. Russell sources fruit from 30 top-tier vineyards in 7+ distinct growing regions from Santa Ynez to Paso Robles. Vineyards of particular note include: Bien Nacido, Larner, Shadow Canyon, Vogelzang and White Hawk. According to Jeb Dunnuck in Wine Advocate “For those looking for super-concentrated, extroverted, exuberant, powerhouse wines from California's Central Coast need look no further than the Herman Story estate.”

Stopped by during the fall Wine Festival. It's hard to beat Herman Story for taste and a moderate price point! We had met Russell at a wine dinner in Las Vegas; he's great at taking some of the pretentiousness out of wine. Every wine was a top selection of our entire weekend's tastings.

Very nice tasting room with real friendly staff. Reason to start here? So you can base all other wineries you visit against them. The wines are pure and delicious with exceptional flavor and character. Just a fun place to kick off the day of wine tasting. Driving by, you would never think to stop in. Not much to look at from the outside and easily missed but definitely worth the time to find it. A big thumbs up here!

Delicious- really delicious wines. Great staff and Hank the German Short hair pointer ( he is a dog calendar celebrity). What a fun start to the day. Get the team to give you some recommendations for some other great vineyards to visit.
