The first panel discussion will focus on the distinction and allure of Paso Robles and the personal experiences that brought each winemaker to the region. As they share their stories, participants will enjoy a wine from each panelist’s portfolio they feel best represents their winemaking style in relation to Paso Robles.
The second panel will highlight the wines of a world-class stage. Each winemaker will speak to the exponential growth and recognition of Paso Robles as premier winemaking and growing region, while attendees enjoy the best wine in each of their respective portfolios.
Each winemaker will also be pouring a selection of wines that have received notoriety while engaging in one-on-one breakout sessions to conclude the event.
