Randy Record - Owner
An accomplished fourth generation farmer and savvy businessman, Randy Record brings his southern California roots to the Central Coast in his newest venture, Record Family Wines located in the Estrella District AVA of Paso Robles. Growing up in San Jacinto California, and working with his father on a dairy farm started by his grandfather in the 1920s, Randy knew he would carry-on the family farming tradition. Randy earned his degree in Agriculture Management at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and developed a passion for the Central Coast and the lush land of Paso Robles. After Cal Poly he returned to San Jacinto and started his own endeavor, RGR Farming Company, which focused on row crops. The Central Coast was well within his sights, as Randy knew someday he would put down roots in Paso Robles.
After raising his daughters, Tricia and Mindy, he along with his wife Anne saw them take a strong interest into the wine business. As a farmer always looking for a new opportunity, Randy purchased the 110-acre property in 2007 as a way to connect his daughters to their family farming heritage and their love of the wine business. Randy, a mentor to Tricia and Mindy, is actively involved in growing the brand and building the business for his grandkids while carrying on the tradition of family farming.
Paso de Record is predominately planted to Cabernet Sauvignon and Rhône varieties. Randy brings his experience of farming and sustainable practices to Paso de Record while producing grapes for several top tier Paso Robles winemakers. The family keeps selected estate fruit for the Record Family Wines label, which was founded in 2009.
