Détente mainly sources fruit from Colburn Vineyard, an immaculate family owned vineyard in the Adelaida District on the west-side of Paso Robles. Our Rhône varietals such as Syrah, Grenache, and Graciano are sourced from Colburn’s rolling terrain. An utterly perfect climate for Rhônes with slopes between 10-20%, an elevation of 940ft, and vineyard comprising Nacimento-Los Osos and Linne Colado complex soils. These moderately deep and well drained soils were weathered from calcareous sandstone and shale. Half of the vineyard has a north south orientation and the newer plantings of Syrah, Graciano, and Pedro Ximénez are east west facing. Tom Colburn, a UC Berkeley graduate, had a professional baseball career in Italy playing for La Fiorentina Baseball Club. While living near the Chianti region, Tom began to develop an appreciation for wine. Due to an unfortunate injury, Tom’s baseball career came to an end. Venturing back home to Calistoga Tom would later earn a degree in Viticulture Management under the supervision of famed Viticulturist Richard Thomas.
