We all know there are some great Cabenets and Bordeauxs grown in California, but the rest of the world needs a little education on the powerhouses being produced right in our own backyard.
That is the primary reason behind the newly formed Paso Robles CAB Collective formed this spring. And it's holding it's inaugural showcase event this weekend.
There are winemaker dinners, barrel tastings, media panels and the big Saturday afternoon gala at Windfall Farms. The grand tasting is at Windfall Farms from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. Tickets are $95 or $30 for designated drivers, and can be purchased by clicking here.
The CAB collective was created with the belief that Bordeaux varieties grown in the Paso Robles appellation and the subsequent quality of the wines produced is under-represented in the marketplace and across the wine industry. Current members include: ADELAIDA Cellars, B&E Vineyard, Chateau Margene, DAOU Vineyards & Winery, Eberle Winery, HammerSky Vineyards, J. Lohr Vineyards & Wines, Jada Vineyard, JUSTIN Vineyards & Winery, L'Aventure, Parrish Family Vineyards, Record Family Wines, Robert Hall Winery, Sextant Wines, Venteux Vineyards and Vina Robles.
