The winery is a 40 acre estate winery was founded in 1996 and grows Barbera, Zinfandel, Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Primitivo, Petite Sirah and Malbec. Doce robles is translated to “twelve oaks” in Spanish, because the property has 12 mature beautiful oak trees. Jimmy and his wife Maribeth are the owners and winemakers. Their goal is to produce great quality wines at affordable prices. The winery produces 4,000-6,000 cases annually.
The winery is the first winery on the west side of town in the Templeton Gap and has a tasting room and outdoor patio to enjoy their wines right on the property. This winery was the 37th winery established in the region out of now over 300+ wineries. The grape vines Jimmy is using are now over 25 years old, which Jimmy planted himself.
Doce Robles Winery Review
Our group of 4 visited Doce Robles in 2022, and our visit was fantastic! We got to taste their wines and the staff helped us learn about each wine and the history behind the wines and the winery itself. We also got to meet the winemaker Jimmy. This winery has a very blue collar feel to it. It has a very laid back and relaxed atmosphere that makes you feel welcome.
The facility itself is pretty small and right next door to Jimmy’s private home. It has a small outdoor patio with an excellent view towards the Templeton Gap (west facing). The patio furniture was older and not very comfortable. But the whole area is very pretty and relaxing. They also have 3 dogs which are very friendly.
In the tasting, we were able to drink wines that were all 6-7 years old, which is rather uncommon. That is also what we purchased for our case of wine. Typically a winery will have you sample wines that are newer, so that was nice to drink older wines and not have to wait or lay the bottles down for a few years.

Insider Tip: If you purchase a case of wine, the price is only $10 per bottle, which is an amazing price for the quality of wines Doce Robles is producing. Their shipping cost was quite high though, so we ended up checking a case on the flight home instead of having them mail the wine.
Overall, we gave this winery 5 stars due to the relaxed unassuming atmosphere, the quality of the wines and the price of the wine. We would definitely visit this winery again in the future! We will also be purchasing more wine from them once we finish the bottles we brought home with us…that may not take very long. 🙂
