LOS OLIVOS, CA, March 10, 2017 – Daniel Gehrs, of Daniel Gehrs Wines, has announced his retirement after more than 40 wonderful years of making wine and working in the wine industry.

What began as a casual interest in college developed into an award‐winning and stellar career as a California winemaker. From a small mountaintop vineyard in Saratoga, Daniel Gehrs worked his way around the industry until settling in Los Olivos in the 1990s. He helped develop the Santa Ynez Valley into one of the top wine destinations in the world, which now receives over 1 million visitors annually. Truly the legacy of Daniel Gehrs in the winemaking world will always be a part of the winemaking style in the Santa Ynez Valley.

For the past 27 years, Gehrs has been a leader in the Santa Ynez Valley wine industry, first with Zaca Mesa Winery, then with his own label, Daniel Gehrs Wines. Many locals and visitors from all over the world have become familiar with the beautiful yellow and white cottage at 2939 Grand Ave in Los Olivos where the Gehrs have poured wine for more than 16 years. “We have met and made friends with so many people from locals to people from all over the world who have just walked in our doors,” Robin said.

Daniel and Robin Gehrs thank everyone who has been part of their dream – their family, friends, employees, and of course, their devoted and loyal customers. “We have had the absolute joy of being a part of the community and doing what we love, and our hope is whoever buys the tasting room enjoys everything as much as we did,” Daniel added.
