Thanks to a growing number of sophisticated wine enthusiasts in the Valley, the Paso Robles Wine Country Alliance has targeted Scottsdale and the greater Phoenix metro area to kick-off its 2011 Grand Tasting Tour. Part and parcel of a fiercely expanding local culinary scene in the Valley, the group of Paso Robles, Calif, winemakers will showcase their wines through a series of winemaker dinners, a marquee Grand Tasting event, and special tasting opportunities at area retailers. This ‘Paso Robles Wine Week’ is set for February 7-11, when over 40 winemakers, winery owners, and tourism representatives converge on the Valley to express the flavor and personality of the Paso Robles wine region.
The most attended event will take place on Wednesday, February 9, with a marquee Grand Tasting at El Chorro Lodge from 6 – 8 p.m. This is a rare opportunity to meet and mingle with all of the traveling winemakers under one roof – the likes of winemaking legends Robert Hall, Gary Eberle, and Vic Roberts of the acclaimed Victor Hugo Winery, as well as many more, are all scheduled to attend. El Chorro Lodge will showcase their culinary delights alongside unlimited tastes of over 120 wines. Tickets are $55 per person and include unlimited tastings and an array of gourmet appetizers that include pork sliders, a bruschetta bar, and imported meats.
