Join us for a presentation by Robert Nadeau, Grower Relations Manager of Opolo Vineyards & Winery

Robert has made wine for prominent Paso Robles labels like Peachy Canyon, Opolo and Norman. 
He purchased land at 3860 Peachy Canyon Road to plant and dry-farm vineyards of Zinfandel and an acre of Grenache Noir and Petite Sirah at an elevation of nearly 2000 feet. The vineyard was planted “above the morning fog” and received twice as much rainfall as Paso Robles. He renovated a tiny barn to become their well-equipped, micro-winery in which they produced hand-crafted wines in small lots. He described their tasting room as their laboratory and invited guests to enjoy their wines sitting among pyrex beakers and periodic tables. The Nadeau Family Vintners sold their wines directly to the public through the tasting room and to their wine club members, The Critical Masses. The winery closed in 2019 when he became the Grower Relations Manager at Opolo.

We ask that you bring a bottle of wine or beer and substantial appetizer or dish to share, as well as your plates, glasses and utensils. Tables will be set up as usual so that we can socialize while we eat.

Many thanks to our hosts Scot and Debbie Addis and our co-hosts Janice and Guy Callari 

We hope you will be able to join us!
Guests are welcome!
