Fans of great Cabs and Bordeaux style wines need to make plans to visit Paso Robles the weekend of May 2nd. The Paso Robles CAB Collective (a consortium of Paso Robles growers) will be sponsoring one of the Premier Cabernet and Bordeaux Tastings to be found of the Pacific Coast. The event, with the name CABs of Distinction Grand Tasting, will provide a special opportunity to taste some of the best CABs and Bordeaux style wines available during 2015.
This event, open to wine lovers favoring Cabs and Bordeaux varietals, will feature more than 75 unique offerings from the Paso Robles area. The venue, River Oaks Hot Springs, provides a beautiful setting for the tastings. Participants will be able to enjoy both the beautiful Paso Robles countryside and the really special wines featured at the event.
The Tastings, priced with General Admission at an extremely reasonable $60.00 per person, allows unlimited tastings of some very popular (and sometimes) very rare Cabs. In addition, tapa style small plates featuring some of Paso Robles best artisanal producers will be available for afternoon snacking. These local offerings will feature some unique foods, with many of the plates designed specifically for the CAB event.
Cost for the Saturday VIP afternoon activities is $90.00 and allows early entry to the venue. Early entry allows for more time to meet and chat with the winemakers and sample their different wines. This is a great time to hear directly from the winemaker how each of their wines has been developed and what they think the future of Paso Robles wines will be. The VIP Admission is open at 1 PM.
General Admission opens at 2 PM and runs until event closing. Both the General Admission and the VIP allow full access to the wine and food offerings.
Providers of the food at the CABs of Distinction Event come from Monterey Chocolate Company, Therabee, Vivant Fine Cheese and other local specialty houses.
