We share the amazing story of owner and winemaker David Parrish, which goes back decades to the early days of what is now the world-famous Napa Valley. Attending UC Davis, Mr. Parrish caught the attention of Robert Mondavi and soon Parrish developed and installed trellising for his vineyards and Bob Steinhauer of Beringer Winery. Mr. Parrish worked for two decades designing and installing vineyard trellising throughout many infamous wine regions and has several patents for trellis design. In 1995, Parrish moved back to the Central Coast to grow Cabernet Sauvignon close to where his grandfather planted 500+ acres of grapes pre-Prohibition. Today, the family manages 150 acres on three estate vineyards in Paso Robles, specializing in Bordeaux varieties, creating estate-inspired, Napa-style Cabs in Paso’s calcareous limestone soils that are available at Parrish Family Vineyard on Adelaida Road. The best wines all start with smart farming in the vineyard that produces expertly grown grapes.
