Tobin James – Owner/Winemaker Email: [email protected] Tobin "Toby" James was born in San Francisco and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. He spent every summer of his youth working the family’s vineyard just across the border in Indiana. Toby knew from the time he was 18 years old that he wanted to be a winemaker. He was working in his brother's wine shop while attending the University of Cincinnati, when Gary Eberle walked in to promote the Estrella River label. Before Gary left, Toby had secured himself an invitation to apprentice at Estrella River Winery working crush. So shortly thereafter, in 1979, at the age of 21 and with five dollars in his pocket, Toby headed out west to Paso Robles and began working at Estrella. Soon he was managing the barrel room as Cellar Master and handling all the Southern California marketing for the label. Gary was so impressed with Toby's versatility that when he left to start his own Eberle Winery, he invited Toby to join him as his Assistant Winemaker.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
