Zoom Hangouts

April 8, 2020

Come take a peek behind the curtain of Paso Robles Wine Country and “hangout” with some of Paso’s personalities. This casual Zoom meet-up has no agenda, no motive to sell you anything, nor a script. Paso is a tight-knit community, so naturally, panelists are not only colleagues, but friends specially selected for the show theme. Topics may include what’s happening in the cellar or vineyard, how they approach food pairings, the importance of organic farming, experimental vessels, and more. Disclaimer: Conversations may digress to the proverbial shooting of the …..

Paso Wine Zoom Hangouts will include three personalities joining in from the cellar, winery, home, or vineyard. Happening every Wednesday and Friday from 3 – 3:50 pm and hosted by Paso Wine’s own Christopher Taranto.

Come hangout and see what’s up in Paso.
