Poly Wine Festival
Was held Friday and Saturday April 28th-29th, 2007
a blast! There were so many wonderful wines flowing freely as well as
an abundance of beautiful people! This festival should be a must on any
wine connoisseurs list.
The bus took us up to the event! (Above Middle) Some fellow bus
riders! As well as just three of the
many (Above right) Cal Poly volunteers!
(Above) A local
band JUICE! Played music during the event! They have the best sound!
All who went had a
chance to taste wines that aren't normally available at wine festivals
yet were in fact there to support their love and appreciation for the
many diverse Cal Poly Wine Clubs and growers associations.
Here are some of the food samplings that were offered.
The event was held at the historic Santa Margarita Ranch. It featured
wineries from all over California as well as local restaurants and
caterers. The afternoon was well spent tasting fine wines and hors
(Below) some pictures of the huge attendance this year.
Here is a peak at what I felt were the best wines in the
Volk Vineyards won and warmed heart with their entire collection and at
only $14 a bottle it just goes to show that you can never judge a bottle
by its price tag alone.
I would elaborate on just how deliciously crisp and smooth their
wines are but I recommend just trying it for yourself! Hearthstone was
another to remember!
And let me
tell you they are very limited in what they produce each year so if you
think you want a taste of heaven don't wait!
although this wine is from the Central Coast it reminds me of a hearty
Azorean Portuguese wine. Cass from Paso Robles had a great selection!
how can you resist a little Purple Haze from the Château of Delighton.
I hope if you
get the chance to go on a wine tour on the Central Coast that you make
it to one if not all of these superb wineries for a taste!
