    Ep 60 – Getting Real on Paso Dirt

    You might have heard you cannot make a good wine with bad grapes. But what about a world class wine? A cult wine? A 100 point wine? Where are these grapes coming from? Who are these farmers? Today, you’ll get to meet and get the low down from two of them.



    Adam is joined by Bill Gibbs of G2 Vineyard, and Lucas Pope of Coastal Vineyard Services as well as Haliotide.



    G2 was first made popular by Justin Smith of Saxum, and now more are making a name for this earth that grows some of Paso’s in-demand grapes. Episode 36, we featured Don from Turtle Rock who just scored his first 100 with his G2 Syrah.



    Along with Bill, we have Lucas Pope of Coastal Vineyard Services. CVS is a company that helps estate wineries perform top level farming at all levels. Lucas and his wife Nicole also have a sparkling brand, ‘Haliotide Wines’ which is where we are recording this episode.

    Ep 59- Harvest is Sexy – Featuring Cass Wines | Opolo Vineyards

    Ep 59- Harvest is Sexy – Featuring Cass Wines | Opolo Vineyards

    Harvest is full swing, and we have two brands on today who deliver big in sharing their excitement about harvest with their fans. While Cass and Opolo have different levels of production and are on different sides of town, these two brands, and the guests today are infectious and their enthusiasm play big roles for their wineries.

    The show today was taped in the Cass Wines barrel room. We were welcomed by co-owner Ted Plemons – Oww! (IYKYK), as well as Chanda Brown who is apparently tasked with keeping all these crazies in line.

    From Opolo we have Jeff Faber. Jeff also is a ball of personality, and his voice makes me super jealous. He did radio in Chicago years ago. I’ve known both these guys for years so this show will be a blast.

    Also stoked to have Jen Bravo, associate producer on the pod from Paso Wine join us and fill us in on everything Harvest Wine Month related.

    What used to be one weekend, is now being celebrated all month of October. For more on Harvest Wine Month, check out www.pasowine.com

    Ep 57 - Rock Guitars & Wedding Bells

    With Paso’s bursting popularity, folks are coming to Paso for more than just wine tasting. People are getting tickets for performances, they are booking weddings, and more.

    On this episode, we will talk to two brands that have their own unique form of hospitality and entertainment, and not only does it fit in with Paso so well, but Paso is far better, having their unique life stories having brought them here.

    Rich Secchiaroli and his wife Tracy own Terra Mia Vineyards, a breathtaking venue for weddings, and anything else you can dream up. We will also learn about their new venue that just opened.

    Gary and Laura Kramer own Kramer Estate Wines originally knows as Gary Kramer Guitar Cellars (they got sick of ppl calling them , which is so unique and unlike anything you have seen in Paso. Laura makes the wines, and we learn Gary’s history that has enveloped the theme of the winery, Rock n Roll, and more specifically, electric guitars. Gary Kramer is the Kramer behind Kramer Guitars which in its time was the #1 guitar in the country, selling more than even Gibson, and Fender. Everyone from Mick Jagger to Jerry Garcia were using the guitars and Eddie Van Halen even told Gary in 1981, these would become the #1 guitar around, and indeed it did.

    Ep 55 - Culture & Connection

    Ep 55 - Culture & Connection

    Excited to chat with two brands who have thriving tasting rooms downtown Paso Robles, but ALSO have estate fruit they are farming in Paso wine country as well.

    We talk to Neeta and Kunal Mittal of LXV have been a downtown tasting room before it was even cool. They just celebrated their 12th anniversary, and their story, passion, and path is something special, and I've always loved sharing time with them on and off the air.

    We also meet for the first time Anita and Varinder Sahi of Copia Wines. Their path to Paso is also as unique as it gets, and how life took them to Paso with a tasting room literally across the street from LXV is pretty exciting. Anita comes from an accomplished hospitality background, and Varinder has been making wine for a while, but left another wine region in the state to be a part of the Paso wine scene. Now they are both here, and Paso fans couldn't be luckier to have them.

    Both these brands share our original theme of downtown tasting rooms along with estate fruit, and coincidentally are also all four of Indian descent so it will be awesome to be exposed to that wodnerful culture through these four lovely people, and learn a thing or two about it.

Awesome Podcast

Adam does a great job bring the personalities
and vibe of Paso to listeners. Listening to this podcast has really helped me better understand the amazing creativity that is being exhibited by Paso wine makers. This podcast is about much more than wine. It is about amazing people who are all working together to make Paso the next great wine region.
