In April, we had a production crew from the Cooking Channel show Man Fire Food out to the vineyard to show them how we cook with fire! Over the course of two days, the crew documented the history of our Deep Pit BBQ tradition, the preparation of the meat, the cooking process, and the final feast. Here is a behind the scenes look of what took place!

Do you enjoy Cabernet Sauvignon? Merlot? Other Bordeaux varietals? Check out the Paso Robles CAB Collective and get tickets to the upcoming CABs of Distinction Gala! We participated in this event last year, and it was one of the best I have ever poured at (and there have been A LOT!)

The Paso Robles CAB Collective is made up of a group of 20 wineries producing spectacular wines from Bordeaux varietals. We currently just make Merlot, but will soon have over 30 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon in production to add to our line up of limited production wines. In the meantime, we are thrilled to be part of this group and excited about the wines that are being showcased!
This year, the CABs of Distinction Gala is taking place at the beautiful River Oaks Hot Springs in Paso Robles. In addition to tasting the best wines from 20 top Paso producers, there will also be a VIP lounge area, CAB Bistro featuring food from several of our favorite local restaurants, music, and more. For the price, I believe this is the best event out there!
To make it even better, Record Family Wines Club Members will receive $20 off tickets by entering promo code CLUBRECORDFAMILY when purchasing tickets. Check it out and plan to join us, you won’t be disappointed!
