Paso Wine Hour

Join us for the Paso Wine Hour where we hang out with a few of Paso Robles Wine Country’s personalities. This casual online show brings together Paso’s tight-knit wine community, so naturally, panelists are not just colleagues, but friends specially selected for the show theme. Topics may include what’s happening in the cellar or vineyard or any number of subjects that apply to wine, or not. We strive to discuss something interesting while having fun. Wines are shared and opinions made.

The Paso Wine Hour includes three personalities joining in from the cellar, winery, home, or vineyard. Happening every Thursday from 3 – 4 p.m. and hosted by Paso Wine’s own Christopher Taranto. This casual meet-up has no agenda, no motive to sell you anything, nor a script. Just a few of Paso wine country’s personalities having a talk and giving the viewers a peek behind the personality of the region.

Thursday, March 4 @ 3 p.m. – San Luis Obispo County Wine – A World-Class History

The first and most comprehensive and collective wine history of the entire county of San Luis Obispo (Paso to SLO) book is just being released. Featuring great stories from the early days of cultivation in the 1700s to the present day, Libbie Agran, with the help of Heather Muran, authored and compiled this impressive book that captures the history of winegrowing and making in San Luis Obispo County. Janell Dusi of J Dusi Wines and Tom Myers of Castoro Cellars join in the conversation as we will delve into some of the history of our wine region and whose time spent individually and through family have helped shape Paso Robles Wine Country today.

Thursday, March 11 @ 3 p.m. – Paso’s Heritage Varietal: Zinfandel

Much of Paso’s history is rooted in Zinfandel with much of the first vines planted by Italian immigrants in the early 1900s. Wine is a defining beverage to the Italian culture and Zinfandel was much like their native Primitivo. As Paso’s trajectory as a wine region continued to rise, much of the world came to associate the region with Zinfandel, especially because many producers in the late 80s and early 90s specialized in Zinfandel. Today we talk everything Zin with three producers who have come to be known as specialists in the world of Zinfandel at different times over Paso’s rise in popularity.

Thursday, March 18 @ 3 p.m. – Down To Earth Month

Sustainability in Practice is a program that certifies wineries and vineyards as being sustainable. Certification addresses the 3 P’s of Sustainability which includes People, Planet, Prosperity. This ensures that both natural and human resources are protected. Standards are pretty strict, which require a measurable, holistic set of practices addressing habitat, water, energy, soil, recycling, air quality, packaging, pest management, social equity, and business management. Today we speak to Beth Vukmanic Lopez, the Program Directo for Sip Certified, along with a couple of wineries (TBD) who are shining examples of SIP Certification.
