Wine Competition recently announced the results of its
2020 competition. Taking “Best of Show – White” was the 2019 Central Coast Albariño from Brecon Estate in Paso Robles. This latest acknowledgment
tops a rise for Brecon Estate’s team, which this October will celebrate eight years since the purchase of its Vineyard
Drive property.
Brecon has been at the forefront of producing world- class Paso Robles varietals including petit verdot,
albariño, mourvedre, cabernet franc, and syrah “all with just
a hint of international flair,” the winery said in an announcement.
Damian Grindley, Brecon’s winemaker said he was particularly
humbled by this latest accolade. It is truly unusual for a lesser-known varietal such as albariño to top such
a prestigious show, particu- larly from a region arguably better known for its red wine offerings, he says. Grindley
is also the founder of the Central Coast Albarino Sum- mit which regularly gathers growers and enthusiasts of albariño from all over Cali- fornia to Paso Robles.
Brecon Estate’s wines are sold exclusively on-site at
their tasting room located at 7450 Vineyard Drive in Paso Robles. Brecon is open daily between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. by
appointment. Please make reser- vations for wine tasting at www. For groups larger than six, call (805) 239-2200.
