Denner Vineyards & Winery
Great facility, great location, great people, and of course, great wine. John first built the estate home, and now has designed and built the winery tasting room and private Comus Center. The Denner Winery is built to contour into an existing hillside with the vineyard. It is also one of a very few gravity-flow wineries in California. Gravity-flow helps to produce hand-made, artisanal wines that are stylized vinous portraits of the unique terroir from specific parts of Denner's hilly estate vineyard.
Located in the heart of Paso Robles, California.

The Denner Winery was completed in time for the 2005 harvest. Ron and John believe that great architecture blends with the environment. Denner Winery, therefore is designed to fit into the rolling hills and is complementary to the geography and culture of the Central coast
Practices & Techniques
Estate Vineyards / AVA
The 108 acres under vine are comprised of 19 different varieties in 26 unique blocks. Each block is farmed with painstaking attention to detail, allowing only for the best possible grapes to reach the winery. Aron Nevarez, our vineyard manager, is committed to environmentally friendly farming practices, using only sustainable inputs and minimal irrigation.
The original 96-acres were designed and planted by John Crossland of Beckstoffer fame. Later, Justin Smith of Saxum came on to consult with Aron Nevarez running the operation. Since 2005 Aron has had complete control of all vineyard operations, in addition to designing and planting the remaining 12 acres surrounding the winery.
Denner Vineyards currently uses 45 of the total 108 acres for our estate wine program. The remaining grapes are sold to ultra-premium producers here in Paso Robles. Much of our fruit graces the wines of Villa Creek Cellars, Linne Calodo, and Justin Vineyards among others.
