The Paso Robles CAB Collective- April 26 and 27

CAB Collective

The Paso Robles CAB
(Cabernet and Bordeaux) Collective (PRCC)
, a grass-roots
collaboration of Paso Robles appellation wineries who produce superior quality,
age-worthy Cabernet and Bordeaux varietals, will show their finest selections
to consumers, trade, and media worldwide during the inaugural CABs of
Distinction events April 26-27, 2013.

The slate of events includes winemaker
dinners and a Saturday afternoon gala at the prestigious Windfall Farms, an
elegant setting with panoramic views, and a seductive backdrop for Cabernet and
Bordeaux aficionados.

Created with the belief
that Bordeaux varieties grown in the Paso Robles appellation, and the
subsequent quality of the wines produced, are under-represented in the
marketplace and across the wine industry, the PRCC seeks to improve awareness
among consumers and retailers worldwide regarding the distinctive attributes of
Paso Robles Cabernet as well as other Bordeaux varietals.

Current members
include: ADELAIDA Cellars, B&E Vineyard, Chateau Margene, DAOU Vineyards
& Winery
, Eberle Winery, HammerSky Vineyards, J. Lohr Vineyards &
, Jada Vineyard, JUSTIN Vineyards & Winery, L’Aventure, Parrish Family
, Record Family Wines, Robert Hall Winery, Sextant Wines, Venteux
and Vina Robles.
