Notes from the Importer: SLO-born Darren Delmore learned to make wine at the Hirsch Vineyard, Whitethorn, Goldeneye, and Two Hands. He started a family in 2012, became the National Sales Manager at Tablas Creek Vineyard too, and every year made a barrel of cool climate Syrah in the garage. In 2017, Darren poured a tax return into 2,000 pounds of Pinot Noir and a bin of Syrah from Cambria to birth Delmore wines. These bottles are rare, wild fermented, unfiltered expressions of Pinot Noir and Syrah from sea sprayed Central Coast terroirs. A member of RAW WINE and published author of the Confessions of a Vagabond Cellarhand trilogy, Darren makes less than 800 cases a season in Tin City Paso Robles.
