The Wineries of Downtown Paso Robles have been producing numerous varietals for almost a decade now. Some are new to "the block," some have remained steadfast and downtown for many years. The fact of the matter is that right now, in this day in time, downtown Paso Robles is so fortunate to have a fabulous hand full of talented wine makers and beautiful tasting rooms.

Derby Wine Estates has just recently restored the old Farmers Alliance Building in Paso Robles, a diamond of architecture hidden beneath centuries of dust and neglect. This beautiful representation of Paso Robles' rich history in agriculture and production has become a beacon of energetic revival and created a deeper sense of heritage to the tiny Paso Robles Downtown area. Ray Derby, of Derby Wine Estates recently told The Tribune "My motto is preserving the past, to use in the present, to enrich the future." This enrichment will prove tangible at the 2014 "Sip and Swing" Downtown Wine Festival.

Tickets can be purchased at https://sipandswing.eventbrite.com or at Derby Wine Estates, located at 525 Riverside Avenue, Paso Robles, CA 93446. For more information call Derby Wine Estates at (805)238-6300.
