Annual Wine Star Awards Honor the Most Influential and Innovative Names in the Wine Industry

PRESS RELEASE

PASO ROBLES, CA (November 12, 2013) Wine Enthusiast Magazine announced that the Paso Robles American Viticultural Area (AVA) has received the honor of being named the 2013 Wine Region of the Year in the magazine's annual Wine Star Awards. Paso Robles Wine Country, located along California’s famed Central Coast, is midway between Los Angeles and San Francisco with over 200 wineries and 32,000 vineyard acres. The region’s winemakers, growers and industry are ecstatic to be held in the highest regard among some of the world’s greatest wine producing regions with this incredible award.

“Since 1983, when the Paso Robles AVA was first created, the region has grown exponentially with talent, quality and artistry,” said Gary Eberle, owner of Eberle Winery.

Paso Robles as a wine region has been gaining in popularity in recent years with a number of accolades through exemplary point scores, creative video marketing initiatives and high profile articles and reports. The AVA continues to mature with a current proposal to create 11 districts within the boundaries of the Paso Robles viticultural area which will allow growers and vintners to tell their stories more clearly, which in turn will give consumers and trade a much greater understanding of Paso Robles’ diversity and complexity.

“This award is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our wineries and growers whose individual accomplishments help raise the bar of the region as a whole,” said Jennifer Porter, executive director of the Paso Robles Wine Country Alliance.

The Paso Robles wine region and the winners of the 2013 Wine Star Awards will be honored at an industry studded gala/black-tie awards ceremony at the New York Public Library in New York City on Jan. 27, 2014. The Paso Robles AVA will be represented by Jennifer Porter, Executive Director and Christopher Taranto, Communications Director of the Paso Robles Wine Country Alliance, as well as a number of winery and grower representatives.
