Opolo Viognier - a bright rhone varietal grown in the central coast.
Opolo Montagna Mare - a blend of Barbera and Sangiovese
Opolo Merlot - Santa Lucia grapes
Opolo Summit Creek Zin - big, bright, and rich

This will be a great tasting to find that last minute gift, or the perfect wine for Christmas dinner. Drop-In tasting, so come any time during the tasting while out shopping!

Opolo Vineyards:
They say good fences make good neighbors, but it was a love of wine and winemaking that was the entrée between Opolo owners Rick Quinn and Dave Nichols. Their two families have lived side-by-side in Camarillo since 1996. As Nichols remembers, “I knew Rick to say hello to, but that was about it. Then one day, he said to me, ‘Hey Dave, I just planted 10,000 grapevines!’ “ And so began the evolution of Opolo, one of Paso Robles’ newest labels. Quinn and Nichols have been neighbors in two counties since 1997 when Nichols bought vineyard property adjoining Quinn’s. Together they now own about 280 acres of vineyards in Paso Robles, about 200 acres on the Eastside and 80 on the Westside. The Westside vineyards are in the Adelaide Hills, producing wines such as Pinot Noir and Sangiovese, while the Eastside properties produce varietals such as Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. The majority of vineyards have been producing fruit since 1998, and a small percentage of it has been finding its way into wine made by Quinn and Nichols ever since.

Tasting Fee $10, includes light bites. 10% off all wines during the tasting.
