Wine Speak

January 14, 2020 @ 8:00 am January 16, 2020 @ 5:00 pm

Wine Speak Paso Robles is a premier industry summit that brings sommeliers, wine industry leaders and hospitality professionals together for an intimate educational journey.

Join master sommelier Chuck Furuya and his peers as they steer winemaker seminars, hospitality workshops, dinners, tastings and exclusive vineyard excursions—all designed to advance collaboration, knowledge and performance throughout the wine industry.


Featuring Jason Haas of Tablas Creek, Jordan Fiorentini of Epoch, Steve Peck of J. Lohr and Mike Sinor of Ancient Peaks. Moderated by Amanda Wittstrom Higgins, co-founder of Wine Speak Paso Robles and VP of Operations at Ancient Peaks Winery.

This seminar is a great opportunity for our guests to learn more about Paso Robles, our host wine region.


For 2020, we are opening the door to the WORLD of wine. In the words of Wine Speak Co-Founder Chuck Furuya, “I clearly remember the face of an assistant winemaker when he first tasted the 2015 Faury Condrieu. It really was an ‘aha’ moment.  I was also quite moved by watching the joyful faces of young, visiting sommeliers when they tasted through the offerings from Washington state, Australia, different parts of California and especially Paso Robles after having visited the vineyards.” Such was the inspiration for creating this event—to give our guests a sense of wonderment from discovering something new, something totally ‘out of the box’ and broadening their imagination. This is that night! We already have confirmed wines from Germany, Portugal, Italy, Spain, Argentina and France, as well as many of our friends from Paso Robles and throughout California.
