The 45+ members of the Paso Robles Chapter of the Rhone Rangers invite you to join them for a day in Paso Robles Wine Country with some of America’s leading producers of Rhone varietals as we explore what makes Paso Robles so ideal for these great grapes and wines. This fun-filled and information-rich day will include:

  • "Rhone Essentials" Seminar - Taste a top example of each of the principal categories of Paso Robles Rhone wines as you hear from winemakers and principals who have chosen the Rhone Ranger route in Paso Robles, and who are forging the area's reputation as California's "Rhone Zone". The seminar panel will be moderated by Matt Kettmann, Contributing Editor for Wine Enthusiast Magazine. The wines and panelists representing the major categories on the panel will be announced in late December.
  • Vintners' Lunch - Seminar participants will be joined by Rhone Rangers principals and winemakers for a gourmet banquet lunch from local Chef Maegen Loring{C}{C}{C}{C}{C} with members' Rhone wines passing freely around the tables and extended opportunity for interaction with the producers.
  • Grand Tasting & Silent Auction - Taste nearly 150 wines from the complete membership of the Paso Robles Rhone Rangers, including top single Rhone varietals and the best in Rhone blends.  During the Grand Tasting, bid on lots donated by Rhone Rangers member wineries and help support the Rhone Rangers scholarship fund!

The day's events will take place at Broken Earth Winery, on Highway 46 just east of Paso Robles.  Participation in the seminar and lunch will be limited to the first 220 tickets sold.  The seminar and lunch has sold out at least six weeks before the event each of the past four years.  The grand tasting will be limited to 400 attendees.

Tickets for the seminar and lunch are $85, and seminar/lunch attendees receive free entry into the Grand Tasting.  Tickets for the Grand Tasting are just $35, and free to qualified trade and media (advance registration is required).
