WiVi Central Coast will conclude the two-day conference with a special comparative tasting led by Lance Cutler, winemaker and Wine Business Monthly contributing editor. Lance leads the tasting of nine wines from Paso Robles, Napa Valley and Washington from 3 to 5:30 p.m. today. "As a winemaker for more than 30 years, nothing is more interesting than listening to winemakers talk about what they are trying to do and how they go about accomplishing it, especially when you get to taste the wines and hear what they have to say about them," Lance said.

Participants will hear from Paso Robles winemakers: Roger Nicolas of RN Estate, Guillaume Fabre of L'Aventure and Fred Holloway of JUSTIN Vineyards and Wines. Each will discuss their wine style and how the wine developed from the vineyard to the winery. Then you will taste all nine wines where participants will experience first-hand the influence of terroir.
