Randy Caparoso -- longtime award-winning restaurateur and Editor-at-Large of The SOMM Journal -- and Chef Cheyne Jackson of Santa Margarita’s The Range Restaurant have combined their talents to create an ultimate luncheon highlighting four of Paso Robles’ most amazing wines (by Daou Vineyards, Epoch Estate, L’Aventure Winery and Tablas Creek Vineyard). Emceeing the event will be none other than Fred Dame MS, Global Wine Ambassador of Daou Vineyards & Winery. Other than the fact that this will be a 4-course affair, we can promise you this: There will be culinary fireworks, involving unexpected, yet edifying, combinations. Prepare to have your senses wowed!
