Glasses Are Lined Up & Ready for Tasting
Glasses Are Lined Up & Ready for Tasting

The grand tasting was held at Windfall Farms in Paso Robles, a 724-acre property, horse farm and event venue. The grand tasting was in one of the barns andset up so each of the 16 Paso CAB (Cabernet and Bordeaux) Collective memberwineries were stationed in separate stalls pouring their best wines. Many of them had their winemaker on hand to discuss the vintages and answer questions. This may sound crazy coming from us but there was so much wine, and so little time, it was impossible to stop by each winery. Of the ones we were able to get to, we noted our favorites.
