Ep 94: The Art of the Blend

February 16, 2024

Where Wine Takes You – Episode Highlights 

Much like art, wine is a very personal experience. In this week’s episode, we’re swinging by The Blending Lab Winery, a spot nestled right in the heart of downtown Paso Robles. These folks have been at it since 2014, showing people that drinking wine should be fun for everyone regardless of their knowledge and preferences. Michael Keller along with partner and co-owner Magdalena Wojcik are here to share their passion for Paso Robles and the art of blending wine.

Joining us is Cole Stilson of Stilson Cellars, a family affair that’s been making waves since 2019. With their tasting room also in downtown Paso Robles and their vineyards over in the Geneseo District, they are all about bringing you the best Paso Robles wines. Cole, co-founder and winemaker extraordinaire, is spilling the beans on what makes their wines – and Paso Robles blends – so special and so unique.

You can find both of these wineries, along with 40 others, at BlendFest on the Coast Feb. 22-25 – the only California wine event dedicated to blends!

Our Travel Paso Spotlight this week shines on the Central Coast Wine Competition, which promotes the quality and diversity of wineries while recognizing the fastest-growing wine region in California. 

But hey, don’t put those glasses down just yet! In our next episode, Adam Montiel and the gang are gearing up to jet off to France this summer with Paso Wine. Yeah, you heard that right! Stick around to find out how you can snag a seat on this epic adventure with Cork & Cruise, only on Where Wine Takes You. Until then, grab a glass, kick back, and let’s see where wine takes us next. Cheers!
