Tobin James Cellars

Tobin James Cellars has been family owned and operated since the winery's first vintage in 1987.  Owners/Winemakers Tobin James with Lance and Claire Silver are completely passionate about making wine.  For over 30 years Tobin James Cellars has consistently produced outstanding quality wines. Tobin James wines are not submitted for scores due to the fact that the wines are already in such high demand. In 2010 Tobin James (Toby) was honored as the Wine Industry Person of the Year by the Paso Robles Wine Country Alliance.  Toby's passion for wine began with a job at his brother's wine shop in Cincinnati, Ohio, where Toby grew up.  There he met the owner of what was then the Estrella River Winery, moved to Paso Robles and began an internship there.  Over 32 years later, the apprentice turned winemaker, winery owner and wine region ambassador owns one of the most successful well-known popular wineries and tasting rooms on California's Central Coast.  As Toby travels around the country representing his label, his zeal for great wines and his great sense of community reverberate.  It's all about sharing--Toby's passion for his wines and Paso Robles Wine Country.  Whether it’s Winemaker Dinners, Bottle Signings, Tastings or chance encounters, People walk away inspired by his passion.
