PRCC Annual Member BBQ

Just over a week ago, the members of the Paso Robles CAB Collective came together with friends and sponsors to celebrate at our Annual BBQ. Hosts at DAOU Vineyards & Winery put on a beautiful affair with delicious cuisine from Trumpet Vine Catering Рcomplimented with ideal weather. Each PRCC member contributed a bottle or two of their own wine to drink and plenty of good conversation.

Board members from DAOU Vineyards & Winery, Jada Vineyard & Winery, and Chateau Margene shared a few words to re-cap the hugely successful CABs of Distinction event last April, and to look forward to what’s sure to be another fantastic year. We are thrilled with the response we’ve received to the CAB Collective’s mission, both from trade, media, consumers, and our own members. Here’s to the future!

Producer Profile: Red Soles Winery

Randy & Cheryl Phillips

Randy & Cheryl Phillips

One of our newest members is Red Soles Winery, a producer of fine Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, in addition to Viognier, Chardonnay, Tempranillo, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, and others.

Owners Randy and Cheryl Phillips own 200 acres of vineyards, half on Paso Robles’ East Side, and the other half surrounding their beautiful West Side tasting room. While they opened the winery in 2007, their first love and main business is growing sought-after grapes for a few other producers with whom they’ve partnered for many years. Red Soles wines represent the very best lots from their vineyards.

The name Red Soles comes from Randy and Cheryl’s first winemaking experience, in which they crushed a barrel of Petite Sirah and Zinfandel grapes with their own feet. The results became their premier vintage, the 2004 “Kick-Off.”

22241_100231356677767_8296856_nSince then, their wines have won many accolades, garnering 47 medals in 2013 alone. So far, in 2014 they have received Gold from Orange County for their Reserve Cab, Voignier, and Zapatillas.

Randy and Cheryl are often found in their tasting room,  encouraging visitors to indulge in a picnic on their beautiful vine-edged lawn. For more information on Red Soles Winery, please visit
