a very unique place and we are delighted to share this throughout the
weekend at BlendFest on the Coast,” said Jennifer Porter, Executive

2015 event led us to expand the opportunities with a Winemaker Dinner on
the Friday evening and a Blending Seminar and lunch on Sunday.”

On Friday, February 19, multiple Paso Robles winemakers will pair their
