Herman Story Wines + Desparada Wines

Proprietor and winemaker Russell P. From began Herman Story Wines in 2001 with 7 barrels stashed in his employer’s cellar. What started as a modest homage to his rancher grandfather has become a beacon to those seeking opulent, structured Syrah and Grenache. To maintain balance while giving flavor full stage, Russell works with 30 top-tier vineyards in over 7 distinct growing regions between Santa Barbara and Paso Robles. Vineyards of particular note include: Bien Nacido, Larner, Shadow Canyon, Chelle Mountain, and White Hawk.
More Information

"Desparada is the culmination of 19 years of traveling and working for and in wine. I've seen every side of the industry, from winemaking to harvesting, to importing, cold calling for sales, to managing brokerages, to working on restaurant floors, and managing a mobile bottling line. There's something in wine that kept me. I'm a traveler by nature, and Desparada is what carries me."
- Vailia From, Winemaker & Owner
