Sylvester Winery Festival Dinner.
"An evening and a party to remember!"
This past Friday May 18th kicked off
the 2007 Paso Robles Wine Festival. I had the
of attending the Sylvester Winery festival dinner! Located in
highly celebrated Paso Robles, this past week has been one of the hottest I can remember.
Thankfully this event began early on in the evening while the sun was
still in the sky and the soft warm winds were just winding down the day.
The sounds of the grape vines rustling in the gentle wind reminded me of
fond memories as a child in the Azorean Islands. I knew that I was in
for quite a splendor as I walked underneath the beautiful arbor lattices
and towards the entrance of this spectacular event.
The spacious interior of the tasting room
had the utmost appearance of being an upper scale deli, brimming with
cheeses, goodies and gifties, empty
wine barrels filled with an abundance of reasonably priced wines.
There was much merriment in the air as foodies and wine lovers gathered
together in this room. The bottles of wine kept pouring, and with
each tasting I became more and more shocked as to how delicious the wine was
and how the prices were so ridiculously affordable!
After perusing the tasting room/gift shop, I
gladly took my crisp, sweet and refreshing glass of Chardonnay into the main event. With festive live music, long tables
filled with delicious food offerings, and barrels of wine reaching from
the ground all the way up to what must have been at least a 30 foot
ceiling, I felt like I had entered heaven.
Sylvester winery currently produces,
Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sangiovese, Syrah and Zinfandel
dessert wines and ports. All of which I was more than happy to
pair with the luxurious dinner and dessert! The staff was
incredible friendly and more than happy to accommodate! The music was
so festive that the crowd and I could not resist some good dancing.
In addition it was great to rub elbows with the ever sweet Mr. Sylvester Feichtinger. He went above and beyond to make me feel right at
home. He made sure I tried the sparkling wine, some of the
finest I have ever had. I met so many nice people, had an amazing
dinner paired with delicious wines and I would highly recommend that you
attend this event! Go to
