Russell P. From the winemaker with a whole lot of heart is the mastermind behind Herman Story.
Over the last decade Russell has created some of the most sought after wines from the Paso region. Sure...accolades from Robert Parker and Wine Spectator are nice, however that is not why Russell gets up each morning. He is a classic winemaker at heart.
Most of the time we don't stop in tasting rooms when exploring wine regions as we love being outside around the vines. However the Herman Story tasting room is not to be missed.
One - you get to enjoy the newest Herman Story releases.
Two - once in a while they stumble across a bottle of past vintages.
Three - the hospitality by everyone there is outstanding.
Four - they have an awesome wine dog what plays catch.
Five - of course Russell has a winemaking girlfriend that makes stellar wine...and yes you can try those as well.
My suggestion would be to venture out for the day and make this wine tasting experience your last.....enjoy!
