WISE WORDS from our Co-Founder/M.S, Chuck Furuya
WHY PASO ROBLES?
"I have been a HUGE fan of the Paso Robles winegrowing region for quite some time. I also love the small town feel of the area. The appellation is now booming, not only with newly planted vineyards, but a whole, new generation of wine professionals hungry for more knowledge & learning. Being roughly half way between San Francisco & Los Angeles, this makes it an ideal gathering place for all of the wine professionals, winemakers, grape growers & wine lovers in between.
A short time ago, I was asked if I could come to Paso to teach classes for wine tasting room attendants & restaurant staff. I replied, yes, absolutely, but can we do more?
From that, we put together a 3 day event featuring panels of winemakers from around the New World. Because each seminar is 2 ½ hours long, I am hoping there will be much questions & much discussion, all in an effort to learn & to create collaboration). This will happen only if we have a great, open audience. I therefore believe the audience is just as important as the panelists. SHARING, CAMARADERIE, COLLABORATION is our goal.
